Description

Director class

Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Director (IBM 2062-E11) is designed to combine support for increased scalability and performance, intelligent SAN services, support for nondisruptive software upgrades, stateful process restart and failover, and redundant operation in director-class SAN switching. Supporting up to 528 Fibre Channel ports in a single chassis and 2.1 Tbps of system bandwidth, Cisco MDS 9513 is designed to help meet the requirements of even the largest data center storage environments.

1, 2, and 4 Gbps and 10 Gbps Fibre Channel Switching with bandwidth redundancy

Delivers highly available Fibre Channel performance with fully redundant bandwidth. Each crossbar module offers full system bandwidth so that the loss or removal of a single crossbar module does not impact system performance.

Multiprotocol and multitransport architecture

The multilayer architecture of the Cisco MDS 9000 Family is designed to enable a consistent feature set over a protocol-agnostic switch fabric. The MDS 9513 chassis integrates Fibre Channel, FICON, SCSI over IP (iSCSI), and Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) in one system. The flexible architecture of the MDS 9000 Family also allows for seamless integration of future storage protocols.

Integrated hardware-based Virtual SANs (VSANs) and Inter-VSAN Routing

Enables deployment of large-scale, multi-site, heterogeneous SAN topologies. Integration into port-level hardware allows any port within a system or fabric to be partitioned into any VSAN. Integrated hardware-based Inter-VSAN routing provides line-rate routing between any ports within a system or fabric without the need for external routing appliances.

Advanced FICON services

Supports 1-, 2-, and 4-Gbps FICON environments, including cascaded FICON fabrics, VSAN-enabled intermix of mainframe and open systems environments, and N_Port ID Virtualization for mainframe Linux partitions. CUP support enables in-band management of MDS 9000 family switches from the mainframe management console.

With today's announcement, the Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Director (IBM 2062-E11), the Cisco MDS 9506 and 9509 Multilayer Directors (IBM 2062-D04 and D07) and the Cisco MDS 9216i and 9216A Multilayer Fabric Switches (IBM 2062-D1H and D1A) are now interoperable and supported with the newly announced FICON Express4 features of the IBM System z9 Enterprise Class (z9 EC) and System z9 Business Class (z9 BC) servers. The FICON Express4 features are designed to deliver an auto-negotiated link data rate of 1, 2, or 4 Gbps.

High availability

Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Director was designed to provide high availability. Beyond support of hardware upgrades and redundancy of critical hardware components, the Cisco MDS 9513 software architecture is designed to offer high levels of availability, enabling ease of consolidation, and efficient business continuance solutions. The Cisco MDS 9500 Supervisor-2 Module can automatically restart failed processes, making it exceptionally robust. In the event that a supervisor module is reset, complete synchronization between the active and standby supervisor modules supports stateful failover while avoiding disruption to traffic.

The Cisco MDS 9513 chassis includes 1+1 redundant crossbar modules. Each crossbar module providing the necessary bandwidth to deliver full system performance, so that loss or removal of a single crossbar module can have no impact on system performance. Cisco MDS 9500 Series directors are designed to deliver high system performance, even in the event of a crossbar failure.

High availability is supported at the fabric level via the robust and high-performance ISLs. PortChannel capability allows users to aggregate up to 16 physical links into one logical bundle. The bundle can consist of any port in the chassis, helping the bundle remain active in the event of a port, ASIC, or module failure. The bundle can help sustain the failure of any physical link without causing a reset. Additionally, Fabric Shortest Path First (FSPF) multipathing provides the intelligence to load balance across up to 16 equal cost paths and, in the event of a switch failure, to dynamically reroute traffic.

Scalable expansion with maximum investment protection

Leveraging Cisco MDS 9500 Series modules, the Cisco MDS 9513 supports from 12 to 528 1-, 2-, and 4-Gbps auto-sensing Fibre Channel ports, from 4 to 44 10-Gbps Fibre Channel ports and from 8 to 60 1 Gbps Ethernet ports (user configurable for iSCSI and/or FCIP) in a 13-slot modular chassis. With 2.4 Tbps of internal switching capacity, Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Director also supports link speeds up to 10 Gbps and 96 Gbps of front panel bandwidth per slot, and is ready for future speed enhancements as they become available.

Virtual SANs (VSANs)

Well-suited SAN consolidation, VSANs allow more efficient storage network utilization by creating hardware-based isolated environments within a single physical SAN fabric or switch. Each VSAN can be zoned as a typical SAN and maintains its own fabric services for added scalability and resilience. VSANs allow the cost of SAN infrastructure to be shared among more users, while allowing absolute segregation of traffic and retaining independent control of configuration on a VSAN-by-VSAN basis. Any port can be added to any VSAN, providing the flexibility necessary to help address the most challenging data center provisioning scenarios.

Integrated SAN Routing

Another step toward deploying more efficient, cost-effective, consolidated storage networks -- the Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Director supports Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR). IVR allows selective transfer of data traffic between specific initiators and targets on different VSANs while maintaining isolation of control traffic within each VSAN. With IVR, data can transit VSAN boundaries while maintaining control plane isolation, thereby maintaining fabric stability and availability. Integrated IVR helps eliminate the need for external routing appliances, greatly increasing routing scalability while helping to deliver line-rate routing performance, simplifying management and eliminating challenges associated with maintaining separate components. Integrated IVR means lower total cost of SAN ownership.

Multiprotocol intelligence for investment protection

The Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Directors' architecture enables Multilayer/Multiprotocol functionality, allowing the Cisco MDS 9500 Series to integrate multiple transport protocols for increased flexibility. Beginning with Fibre Channel, FICON, iSCSI, and FCIP, the Cisco MDS 9500 Series is a robust multiprotocol platform designed for deployment of cost-optimized storage networks. Today, users can implement up to 10 Gbps-Fibre Channel or FICON for high-performance applications, iSCSI over Ethernet for cost-effective connectivity to shared storage pools, and FCIP for long-distance connectivity between data centers. Designed to support future storage protocols, users can migrate to new technologies while retaining a consistent set of features, services, and management tools.

Open platform for network-hosted storage applications

The Cisco MDS 9000 platform provides a platform that can help deliver the intelligence and advanced features required to make multilayer intelligent SANs a reality, including hardware-enabled innovations for data migration, data replication, and more. Hosting these applications in the network dramatically improves scalability, availability, and manageability of storage networks.

Integrated mainframe support

Cisco MDS 9500 Series Multilayer Directors are mainframe ready with support for IBM System z 1-, 2-, and 4-Gbps FICON and Linux environments. Qualified by IBM for attachment to all FICON-enabled devices in a System z operating environment, Cisco MDS 9500 Series Multilayer Directors support transport of the FICON protocol in both cascaded and non-cascaded fabrics, as well as intermix of FICON and Open Systems FCP traffic on the same switch. VSANs can help simplify intermix of SAN resources between z/OS, mainframe Linux, and open systems environments supporting increased SAN utilization and simplified SAN management.

Advanced traffic management for high-performance, resilient fabrics

Advanced traffic management capabilities integrated into Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Director can simplify deployment and optimization of large-scale fabrics.

  • Virtual Output Queuing helps maintain line-rate performance on each port, independent of traffic pattern, by eliminating head-of-line blocking.
  • Up to 5,000 buffer-to-buffer credits can be assigned to an individual port for optimal bandwidth utilization across distance.
  • PortChannels allow users to aggregate up to 16 physical ISLs into a single logical bundle, providing optimized bandwidth utilization across all links. The bundle can consist of any port from any module in the chassis, help bundles remain active even in the event of a module failure.
  • FSPF-based multipathing provides the intelligence to load balance across up to 16 equal cost paths and, in the event of a switch failure, dynamically reroute traffic.
  • Quality of Service parameters can be used to manage bandwidth and control latency to prioritize critical traffic.
  • Fibre Channel Congestion Control (FCC), an end-to-end feedback-based, congestion-control mechanism, augments the Fibre Channel's buffer-to- buffer credit mechanism to provide enhanced traffic management.

Limitations

There are configuration limitations when using Generation 1 line cards in a Cisco MDS 9513 Director.

The Cisco MDS 9500 Supervisor-2 Module is designed to provide support for up to 528 Fibre Channel ports in a single Cisco MDS 9513 director chassis. The Supervisor-2 Module supports a mixture of Generation 2 (Gen-2) 4-and 10-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching line cards and Generation 1 (Gen-1) IP Services, Storage Services and 2-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching line cards, which helps provide director-investment protection.

However, when Gen-1 line cards (#2116, #2132, #2208, #2214, #2400) are used with Gen-2 line cards (#2404, #2412, #2424, #2448), the maximum number of addressable connections is limited to 252. For example, if a Gen-1 Storage Services Module with 32 Fibre Channel ports is installed, only nine Gen-2 24-port Fibre Channel Modules with 216 ports may also be installed. In this Gen-1 and Gen-2 line card example, only 10 of the 11 9513 director feature slots and only 248 of potential 528 Fibre Channel ports may configured.

Port index availability

The Cisco MDS 9500 Multilayer Directors are designed to operate with any combination of Cisco MDS 9000 modules. However, you should be aware of the maximum port availability your chassis can support. A port index is an internally assigned number that Cisco SAN-OS uses to switch data packets within the director or fabric switch. When the maximum number of port indexes is reached in a chassis, any modules remaining or added to the chassis will not boot up. The number of physical ports on a Fibre Channel module is equal to its port index. However, for Gigabit Ethernet modules (IPS-8, IPS-4, and MPS-14/2), one physical port is equal to four port indexes (virtual ports). The Gigabit Ethernet modules use one port for iSCSI and the remaining three ports for FC IP tunnels.

Table 1

Table 1 lists the physical ports and port indexes (virtual ports) available per Cisco MDS 9000 module.

Using any combination of only Generation 2 modules allows a maximum of 528 port indexes on a Cisco MDS 9513 Director. Generation 2 modules do not need contiguous port indexes. Generation 2 modules will use the available ports in the slot that it is installed and then borrow available ports from the supervisors. It will then restart at slot 1 of the chassis until it has the number of port indexes necessary.

All fibre channel 10 Gbps Switching Modules exclude separately orderable optics, features #5040.

The Cisco MDS 9000 Family 4-Port 10-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module is designed to deliver performance with 10-Gbps link bandwidth, 96-Gbps of continuous aggregate bandwidth per module, and the intelligence and advanced features required to make multilayer SANs a reality. Delivering up to five times the effective link bandwidth of 2-Gbps Fibre Channel products, the Cisco 4-Port 10-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module includes hardware-enabled innovations designed to dramatically improve performance, scalability, availability, and manageability of storage networks.

The Cisco 4-Port 10-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module is hot-swappable and must be ordered with at least one hot-swappable, X2 form-factor pluggable, SC type interfaces. Individual ports can be configured with longwave X2 optical transceivers for connectivity up to 10 kilometers. Up to 250 buffer credits per port are supported for maximum extensibility without requiring additional licensing. With the optional Cisco Enterprise Package, up to 5,000 buffer credits can be allocated to an individual port, enabling full-link bandwidth over thousands of kilometers while avoiding degradation in link utilization.

Ultra-high-per-port bandwidth makes the Cisco 4-port 10-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module ideal for ISL attachment, both within the data center and between data centers across metro-optical networks. When compared with ISL connections utilizing 2-Gbps Fibre Channel links, ISLs using Cisco 10-Gbps links can reduce ISL cabling cost by up to 80%.

With its multiprotocol capability, the 4-port 10-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module seamlessly integrates FICON protocol, FICON Control Unit Port (CUP) management, and switch cascading to enable mainframe connectivity. VSANs allow hardware-based separation of Fibre Channel and FICON traffic switched on a single physical SAN.

(#2424) 24-port Fibre Channel Switching Module 1/2/4-Gbps

(No Longer Available as of December 26, 2009)

Summary: This feature provides a 24-port Fibre Channel Switching Module 1/2/4-Gbps (excluding optics). All fibre channel 4Gbps Switching Modules exclude separately orderable optics, features #5434, #5444, and #5454. Initial Orders of Switching Modules (#2412, #2424 and #2448) require one third of the ports populated with SFP's.

For high performance storage networking environments, the Cisco MDS 9000 Family 24-port 4-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module is designed to deliver a balance of performance and scalability. Twenty four auto-sensing 1-, 2-, and 4-Gbpsports can deliver the sustained bandwidth required to address the performance demands of today's enterprise-class storage arrays and servers. Bandwidth is allocated across four 6-port port groups, providing 24 Gbps of full-duplex bandwidth per port-group.

Port Bandwidth Reservation, a Cisco-unique feature available on the Cisco 24-port 4-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module enables 1, 2, or 4 Gbps of switching bandwidth to be dedicated to a port, enabling improved bandwidth allocation for any application, including the high performance inter-switch links. By combining Cisco 12-, 24-, and 48-port 4-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Modules in a single, modular chassis, you can better design cost/performance targeted storage networks in a wide range of application environments. This approach to port deployment can help reduce the number of switches and interswitch links required in a storage network. In many cases this eliminates the need for less-efficient core-edge network topologies. Fewer switches simplify management and reduce deployment and operational costs, resulting in a significantly lower TCO.
