Overview: This research paper elaborates how EMC Rainfinity Global File Virtualization and Cisco networking technologies interoperate by discussing common deployment scenarios in customer environments. Rainfinitys split-path virtualization architecture leverages the existing IP network infrastructure and interfaces with Cisco Catalyst LAN switches. Rainfinity communicates with the Catalyst switch software, and acts as a layer-2 device, like Cisco PIX firewalls transparent mode, when performing virtualization functions in-band.
