How ECHO Bridge can help you

For many organizations, Fibre Channel and SAS storage installations have outlived their usefulness as Tier 1 platforms, lacking essential performance and scalability. GB Labs’ ECHO Bridge enables technicians to re-purpose existing shared storage for use as a nearline platform and benefit from the full feature-set of ECHO.

Many users are now migrating to GB Labs' network attached storage for its speed of installation, ease of use and sheer performance. Owners of SAN systems can attach their existing fibre-connected storage system to SPACE networks with the Bridge unit. This instantly enables users to enter the GB Labs environment and share data with users with no need for client updates, specialist adapters, drivers or licences. It also enables administrators to transfer data swiftly and - if required - automatically, with all SPACE network storage devices, with no need for a control PC.


ECHO Bridge offers similar performance to ECHO allowing you to create a cost-effective nearline that can be used to store data, replicate SPACE or other third party storage and can even offer failover editing performance for a small number of users.
