JBOD 9-pin connector to SAN switch

I'm a newbie to SAN.

There are JBODs with 9-pin D-type connector. my SAN switch has fibre SFP connector. Is there a cable to connect them?

Re: JBOD 9-pin connector to SAN switch

Yes. There is something called a MIA, Media Interface adapter, and it will convert copper to Fibre. Usually you plug the MIA into the back on the JBOD and attach the fibre to the MIA and the switch. Often times MIA require SC type fibre connections where as the MDS used LC type connects, just make sure you get a fibre cable that is SC on one end and LC on the other. These cables are common since most patch panels use the SC interface.

it may be cheaper to purchase a new JBOD chassis with optical SFP ports

I agree as I just checked the price for MIA.

Can you recommend any cheap JBOD chassis for lab testing? Thanks.
