Abstract

The Cisco MDS 9396S 16G Multilayer Fabric Switch for IBM System Storage is the next generation of the high-performance, high-density, and highly reliable Cisco MDS Series Fabric switches. It combines high performance with exceptional flexibility and cost effectiveness. This powerful, compact, two rack-unit (2RU) switch scales from 48 to 96 line-rate 16 Gbps Fibre Channel ports.

Cisco MDS 9396S is excellent for:

  • A standalone SAN in large departmental storage environments
  • A middle-of-row or top-of-rack switch in medium-sized redundant fabrics
  • An edge switch in enterprise data center core-edge topologies

The Cisco MDS 9396S is powered by Cisco NX-OS Software and Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) software. It delivers advanced storage networking features and functions with ease of management and compatibility with the entire Cisco MDS 9000 Family portfolio for reliable end-to-end connectivity.

The MDS 9396S has been designed to deliver:

  • High performance and flexibility at a low cost
  • A high-availability platform for mission-critical deployments
  • Simplified storage management with sophisticated diagnostics
  • Intelligent network services and advanced traffic management
  • Comprehensive network security framework

Description

The Cisco MDS 9396S has been designed to deliver:

  • High performance and flexibility at lower cost: The base switch model comes with 48 or 96 autosensing Fibre Channel ports enabled, capable of speeds of 2, 4, 8, 10, and 16 Gbps, with 16 Gbps of dedicated bandwidth for each port. The 48-port base model can be upgraded as needed with the 12-port Cisco MDS 9396S On-Demand Port Activation license to also support configurations of 60, 72, 84, and 96 enabled ports. Only the Cisco MDS 9396S scales from 48 to 96 high-performance Fibre Channel ports in a 2RU compact form factor. The Cisco MDS 9396S switch is a high-end fabric switch offering more buffer-to-buffer credits than previous generation fabric switches. It also supports 32 virtual storage area networks (VSANs), making it an excellent choice for standalone small and midsize business Fibre Channel networks.
  • High-availability platform for mission-critical deployments: In environments in which downtime is intolerable, the Cisco MDS 9396S offers In-Service Software Upgrades (ISSU). With this feature, Cisco NX-OS Software can be upgraded while the Fibre Channel ports carry traffic. The Cisco MDS 9396S includes dual redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fan trays, PortChannels for Inter-Switch Link (ISL) resiliency, and F-port channeling for resiliency on uplinks from a Cisco MDS 9396S operating in N-Port Virtualization (NPV) mode. New hardware-based, slow-port detection and recovery deliver enhanced performance and monitoring capabilities.
  • Simplified storage management with sophisticated diagnostics: The Cisco MDS 9396S offers built-in storage network management and SAN plug-and-play capabilities. All features are available through a command-line interface or Cisco DCNM for SAN Essentials Edition, a centralized management tool. Cisco DCNM task-based wizards simplify management of single or multiple switches and fabrics. For virtual infrastructure, it manages the entire path from the virtual machine and switch to the physical storage. The Cisco MDS 9396S also supports Power On Auto Provisioning (POAP) to automate software image upgrades and configuration file installation on newly deployed switches. Additionally, it provides intelligent diagnostics, protocol decoding, network analysis tools, and Cisco Call Home for added reliability, faster problem resolution, and reduced service costs.
  • Intelligent network services and advanced traffic management: The Cisco MDS 9396S uses VSAN technology for hardware-enforced, isolated environments within a physical fabric. It offers access control lists (ACLs) for hardware-based, intelligent frame processing. Advanced traffic management features, such as fabricwide quality of service (QoS) and Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR), are included in the optional Cisco MDS 9000 Family Enterprise Package. QoS prioritizes application data traffic for better and more predictable network service. Zone-based QoS simplifies configuration and administration by using the familiar zoning concept. IVR facilitates resource sharing across VSANs without compromising scalability, reliability, availability, or network security.
  • Comprehensive network security framework: An extensive set of innovative and powerful security features and functions is available with the optional Cisco MDS 9000 Family Enterprise Package. It offers fabricwide, per-VSAN, role-based authentication, authorization, and accounting services using RADIUS, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), Microsoft Active Directory, and TACACS+. It also deploys VSAN fabric isolation, intelligent port-level packet inspection, Fibre Channel Security Protocol (FC-SP) host-to-switch and switch-to-switch authentication, Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), Secure Shell Version 2 (SSHv2), and Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3) implementing Advanced Encryption Standard. Other security features include control-plane security, hardware-enforced zoning, and management access.

The following optional licensed activation features are available for the Cisco MDS 9396S 16G Multilayer Fabric Switch for IBM System Storage:

  • MDS 9300 Enterprise Package (#7310): The MDS 9300 Enterprise Package includes advanced traffic-engineering and network security features such as IVR, QoS and zone-based QoS, FC-SP, port security, VSAN-based access control, and fabric binding for open systems. This feature is licensed per switch for all the ports on the switch.
  • MDS 9300 DCNM Advanced Edition (#7311): The MDS 9300 DCNM for SAN Advanced Edition includes advanced management capabilities such as vCenter integration, performance trending, advanced provisioning, backup, and dashboards. This feature is licensed per switch for all the ports on the switch. License is hosted on a server.
  • MDS 9396S 12-port FC Port-On-Demand (#7312): The MDS 9396S scales up to 96 ports of 16 Gbps Fibre Channel in a fixed configuration switch. The base configuration comes with 48 ports of 16 Gbps Fibre Channel activated and can be upgraded on site to enable additional 48 ports of 16 Gbps Fibre Channel by adding the on-demand port activation license by ordering feature #7312.
  • MDS 9300 Enterpise + DCNM Bundle License (#7320): This feature provides both MDS 9300 Enterprise Package and MDS 9300 DCNM Advanced Edition capabilities.
