Cisco® MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel Switching Modules deliver high performance and innovative features to enable convergence, scalability, and intelligence in large, virtualized data centers. With up to 528 line-rate 8-Gbps Fibre Channel ports per chassis, industry-first technologies such as Cisco FlexSpeed and Arbitrated Local Switching, intelligent fabric services such as integrated VSANs, Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR), and PortChannels, Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel Switching Modules enable deployment of large, scalable, and virtualized data centers.
Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel Switching Modules are available in two configurations:
The 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel Switching Modules are compatible with all Cisco MDS 9500 Series Multilayer Directors, providing investment protection and outstanding low total cost of ownership (TCO).
Cisco MDS 9000 32-Port 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel Switching Module
For the most demanding storage networking environments, the 32-port 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel switching module delivers uncompromising performance. The 32-port 8-Gbps Advanced switching module delivers full-duplex aggregate performance of 512 Gbps, making this module well suited for attachment of high-performance 8-Gbps storage subsystems or either 8- or 10-Gbps Inter-Switch Links (ISLs).
Cisco MDS 9000 48-Port 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel Switching Module
For large-scale storage networking environments, the 48-port 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel switching module delivers full-duplex aggregate backplane switching performance of 512 Gbps, making this module ideal for high-performance and virtualized servers. With Arbitrated Local Switching, the 48-port 8-Gbps Advanced module delivers full-duplex aggregate performance of 768 Gbps across locally switched ports on the module. Arbitrated Local Switching on the 48-port 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel module is well suited for deployment of dense virtual machine clusters with locally mapped storage.
