24-Port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module

For high-demand storage networking environments, the Cisco MDS 9000 Family 24-Port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module is designed to deliver high performance. The front panel ports deliver up to 192 Gbps of full-duplex bandwidth, making this module well suited for attachment of 4- and 8-Gbps-enabled storage subsystems and for Inter Switch Link (ISL) connectivity. With its multi protocol capability, the 24-Port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module transparently integrates Fiber Connection (FICON®) protocol, FICON Control Unit Port (CUP) management, and switch cascading to enable mainframe connectivity. Virtual SANs (VSANs) allow hardware-based separation of Fibre Channel and FICON traffic switched on a single physical SAN, lowering overall total cost of operation without compromising your network's scalability, availability, manageability, and security.

48-Port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module

For high-performance storage networking environments, the Cisco MDS 9000 Family 48-Port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module helps deliver balance of performance and scalability. Its 48 autosensing 1/2/4/8-Gbps ports are designed to deliver a total of 192 Gbps of full-duplex bandwidth to meet the performance demands of enterprise-class or highly virtualized servers. Through easy-to-use traffic engineering capabilities, the 48-Port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module offers the flexibility to support predictable high-performance storage and inter-switch connectivity, fully utilizing the available bandwidth.

4/44-Port 8-Gbps Host-Optimized Fibre Channel Switching Module

The Cisco MDS 9000 Family 4/44-Port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module enables storage network consolidation with high-density connectivity. Four 8-Gbps ports and 44 4-Gbps ports are designed to deliver 96 Gbps of full-duplex bandwidth, sufficient for many of today's standard servers.

Port Bandwidth Reservation, available on all Cisco MDS 9000 Fibre Channel switching modules, enables switching bandwidth to be dedicated to specific ports. This unique Cisco feature gives flexibility in bandwidth allocation to support a mix of applications within a single module, including high-performance ISLs. By combining Cisco 24-Port, 48-Port, and 4/44-Port Host-Optimized 8-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules in a single modular chassis, you can design storage networks in a wide range of application environments.

This application-based approach to port deployment can help reduce the number of switches and ISLs required in a storage network, in many cases reducing the need for core-edge network topologies. Using these switching modules, the Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Director can scale up to 528 ports per chassis or 1056 ports per rack. Fewer switches can help simplify management and reduce deployment and operational costs.

Cisco 8-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules are hot-swappable and 1/2/4/8-Gbps autosensing compatible, and support hot-swappable, Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) and Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) LC interfaces. Individual ports can be configured with Cisco 4- and 8-Gbps short-wave or long wave SFPs and SFP+s for connectivity up to 10 kilometers. Each port supports 250 buffer credits for extensibility without requiring additional licensing. With the Cisco Enterprise Package, up to 4095 buffer credits can be allocated to an individual port, enabling full link bandwidth over thousands of kilometers with no degradation in link utilization.

Intelligent scalability

The Cisco MDS 9000 Family offers high-port density, scaling from 4 to 528 ports per chassis. Because building a large-scale storage network requires more than just high-port density, Cisco has introduced innovative features that make multilayer storage networks a reality. VSANs, Inter-VSAN Routing on every port, advanced traffic management, hardware-enabled serviceability and security features make the Cisco MDS 9000 Family the platform of choice.

Virtual SANs

Well suited for efficient, secure SAN consolidation, ANSI T11 compliant 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, maintaining its own fabric services for added scalability and resilience. VSANs allow the cost of SAN infrastructure to be shared among more users, while supporting segregation of traffic and retaining independent control of configuration on a VSAN-by-VSAN basis. Through virtualization features, VSANs capabilities can be extended to virtualized servers, providing the foundation for an end-to-end virtualized data center.

Integrated SAN routing

In another step toward deploying consolidated storage networks, the Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules support IVR (Inter VSAN Routing) functionality on every port for Fibre Channel. IVR allows selective transfer of data traffic between specific initiators and targets on different VSANs while maintaining isolation of control traffic within each VSAN, thereby helping to maintain fabric stability and availability. Integrated IVR can help lower costs by eliminating the need for external routing appliances, helping to increase routing scalability while delivering line-rate performance and simplifying management.

Integrated mainframe support

Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules are mainframe ready, with full support for IBM System z® FICON and Linux environments. The 8-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules support transport of the FICON protocol in both cascaded and noncascaded fabrics, as well as intermix of FICON and open systems Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) traffic on the same switch. VSANs can help simplify the intermix of SAN resources between z/OS®, Linux for mainframes, and open systems environments, allowing for increased utilization and simplified management of SANs. VSAN-based intermix mode can help avoid the uncertainty and instability often associated with zoning-based intermix techniques.

VSANs can also help reduce the possibility that a misconfiguration or component failure in one VSAN affects other VSANs. VSAN-based management access control can enhance security by simplifying partitioning of SAN management responsibilities between mainframe and open systems environments. FICON VSANs can be managed using the integrated Cisco Fabric Manager; the Cisco command-line interface (CLI); or IBM CUP-enabled management tools, including SA/390, Resource Measurement Facility (RMF™), or Dynamic Channel Path Management (DCM).
