VDX8770-SFM-1 Switch Fabric Module
The Brocade VDX8770-SFM-1 Switch is a highly scalable, low-latency, 1/10/40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) modular switch. Designed to easily scale out Brocade VCS fabrics, the Brocade VDX 8770 Switch brings new levels of performance to VCS fabric deployments. The Brocade VDX 8770 is designed with advanced capabilities, including 100 GbE and hardware-enhanced SDN support, to support data center networking a decade or more into the future.
Designed to scale out Brocade VCS fabrics, the 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE)-ready Brocade VDX 8770 Switch supports complex, highly dynamic environments with dense virtualization and extensive automation requirements. The Brocade VDX 8770 is a highly scalable, low-latency 1/10/40 GbE modular switch, available in both 8U four-slot and 15U eight-slot versions.
The Brocade VDX 8770 supports the most demanding data center networking needs. Highlights include:
- Simplifies network architectures and enables elastic cloud networking with Brocade VCS Fabric technology
- Delivers 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) wire-speed switching with auto-trunking Inter-Switch Links (ISLs) for non-disruptive scaling and increased bandwidth utilization
- Enables easy scale-out of Brocade VCS fabrics with massive Layer 2 domains and direct connections for more than 8000 server ports per fabric
- Provides load-balanced multipathing at Layers 1, 2, and 3, with multiple Layer 3 gateways
- Simplifies Virtual Machine (VM) mobility and management with automated, dynamic port profile configuration and migration
- Provides scale-out performance and investment protection via a 100 GbE-ready, 4 Tbps line-rate backplane design while delivering exceptional application response times with 4-microsecond latency
- Provides hardware-enabled support for Software-Defined Networking (SDN)implementations across data, control, and management planes
Brocade VCS fabrics provide considerable elasticity, compared to both traditional Ethernet networks and competitive Ethernet fabric solutions. With Brocade, organizations can start with small VCS fabrics and scale out the fabric as their needs dictate.
The Brocade VDX 8770 can be used to build a wide range of VCS fabrics, including:
- Smaller-scale VCS fabrics: Can collapse access and aggregation tiers using the Brocade VDX 8770 as a port-dense middle-of-row/end-of-row access switch
- Medium-scale VCS fabric configurations: Can utilize the Brocade VDX 8770 as a spine switch in combination with Brocade VDX 6710, 6720, and 6730 leaf switches
- Large and very large VCS fabrics: Can use the Brocade VDX 8770 homogeneously as both leaf and spine switches
DESIGNED FOR THE MOST DEMANDING DATA CENTER NETWORKS
The Brocade VDX 8770 is a high-performance Ethernet fabric switch that meets the most demanding data center networking needs. Key platform features include:
- Support for more than 8000 ports in a single VCS fabric, with efficient multipathing at Layers 1-3, enabling the switch to serve extremely large-scale deployments with the best-possible network utilization
- Support for 1, 10, and 40 GbE to satisfy current needs, with 100 GbE readiness to support future bandwidth requirements and technology
- 4 Tbps per slot line-rate design for substantial capacity and headroom
- 4-microsecond latency to assure rapid response for latency-sensitive applications
- Support for up to 384,000 MAC addresses per fabric for extensive virtualization scalability
- Hardware-enabled to flexibly support emerging Software-Defined Networking (SDN) protocols such as OpenFlow, VXLAN/NVGRE, and others. RESTful APIs provide openness to emerging management frameworks such as OpenStack.
ETHERNET STORAGE CONNECTIVITY
The Brocade VDX 8770 connects to FCoE, iSCSI, and NAS storage. The FCoE feature can be turned on with an add-on software license.
