The Dell PV-136T-SNC device is used with the Dell PowerVault 136T tape library. This tape library solution can be efficiently connected to SAN environments (storage area network) via an optional SNC module (Storage Network Controller). An SNC module such as the Dell PV-136T-SNC device can act as a bridge among the Fiber channel and SCSI protocols and delivers extra operational, security and management features not available in almost all channel libraries of Fiber Channel. It is highly recommended that the 6101 SNC (also called the 2nd generation SNC or SNC2) be utilized for connectivity in Fiber Channel. By using this controller device, the Dell PowerVault 136T tape library performance can be maximized with the aid of LTO-3 drives in an environment of Fiber Channel. The 6101 storage network controller has twice the performance power of the 5101 storage network controller which is the 1st generation SNC for the Dell PowerVault 136T tape library.
