Cisco MDS 9506 Multilayer Director

The Cisco MDS 9700 48-Port 16-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module deliver high performance and innovative features to enable convergence, scalability, and intelligence in large, virtualized data centers. With up to 384 line-rate 16-Gbps Fibre Channel ports per chassis, intelligent fabric services such as integrated VSANs, Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR), and PortChannels, the Cisco MDS 9700 48-Port 16-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module (Figure 1) enables deployment of large, scalable, and virtualized data centers.

For the most demanding storage networking environments, the Cisco MDS 9700 48-Port 16-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module delivers uncompromising performance. The 48-port 16-Gbps switching module delivers full-duplex aggregate performance of 768 Gbps, making this module well suited for attachment of high-performance 16-Gbps storage subsystems, 16-Gbps Inter-Switch Links (ISLs), and high-performance and virtualized servers.

The Cisco MDS 9700 48-Port 16-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module enables you to consolidate SAN deployments with fewer hardware components, consolidate workloads from hundreds of virtual machines with performance, and scale with incremental updates as your SAN grows while protecting your existing investment. The Cisco MDS 9700 48-Port 16-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module also provides Cisco VMpath technology, which enables advanced virtual machine-aware SAN provisioning and monitoring for virtualized data centers. With Cisco VMpath, you can monitor, manage, and control SAN resource allocation and performance on a per-virtual machine basis and map paths all the way from the server to storage, enabling end-to-end tracking of mission-critical workloads.

Cisco MDS 9700 Series Fibre Channel Switching Module is hot-swappable and compatible with 2/4/8-Gbps, 4/8/16-Gbps and 10-Gbps FC interfaces, and supports hot-swappable Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) transceivers. MDS 9700 module also supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet clocked optics carrying 10Gbps Fibre Channel traffic. Individual ports can be configured with Cisco 16-Gbps, 8-Gbps, or 10-Gbps SFP+ transceivers. Each port supports 500 buffer credits for exceptional 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 long distances with no degradation in link utilization.

The 16-Gbps Fibre Channel switching module continues to provide previously available features such as predictable performance and high availability, advanced traffic management capabilities, integrated VSANs and IVR, resilient high-performance ISLs, comprehensive security frameworks, fault detection and isolation of errored packets, and sophisticated diagnostics.

Product Highlights

  • Outstanding SAN Performance: The combination of the 16-Gbps Fibre Channel switching module and the Fabric-1 crossbar switching modules enables up to 1.5 Tbps of Fibre Channel throughput between modules in each direction for each of the eight Cisco MDS 9710 payload slots. This per-slot bandwidth is twice the bandwidth needed to support a 48-port 16-Gbps Fibre Channel module at full line rate. Cisco MDS 9700 architecture, based on central arbitration and crossbar fabric, provides 16-Gbps line-rate, nonblocking, predictable performance across all traffic conditions for every port in the chassis.
  • High Availability: The Cisco MDS 9700 provides outstanding availability and reliability. The Cisco MDS 9710 is the industry’s first director-class switch to enables redundancy on all major components, including the Fabric Card. It provides Grid Redundancy on Power Supply and 1+1 redundant Supervisors. Users can add additional fabric card to enable N+1 Fabric Redundancy.
  • Industry-leading scalability: With up to 24 terabits per second (Tbps) of Fibre Channel system bandwidth and 384 2/4/8/16-Gbps full line-rate autosensing Fibre Channel ports in a single chassis or up to 1152 Fibre Channel ports in a single rack, the Cisco MDS 9710 leads the industry in scalability and is designed to meet the requirements of the largest data center storage environments.
  • Intelligent network services: VSAN technology, access control lists (ACLs) for hardware-based intelligent frame processing, and fabricwide quality of service (QoS) enable migration from SAN islands to enterprisewide storage networks.
    • Integrated hardware-based VSANs and IVR: Integration of VSANs into port-level hardware allows any port in a system or fabric to be partitioned to any VSAN. Integrated hardware-based IVR provides line-rate routing between any ports in a system or fabric without the need for external routing appliances.
    • Intelligent storage services: The Cisco MDS 9700 operates with intelligent service capabilities on other Cisco MDS 9000 Family platforms to provide services such as acceleration of storage applications for data replication and backup and data migration to hosts and targets attached to the Cisco MDS 9700.
    • Smart Zoning: When the Smart Zoning feature is enabled, Cisco MDS 9700 Series fabrics provision the hardware access control entries specified by the zone set more efficiently, avoiding the superfluous entries that would allow servers (initiators) to talk to other servers, or allow storage devices (targets) to talk to other storage devices. This feature makes larger zones with multiple initiators and multiple targets feasible without excessive consumption of hardware resources. Thus, smart zones can correspond to applications, application clusters, hypervisor clusters, or other data center entities, saving the time that administrators previously spent creating many small zones and enabling the automation of zoning tasks.
  • Virtual machine transparency: The Cisco MDS 9700 Series provides deterministic hardware performance and a comprehensive feature set that allows virtual machines to have the same SAN attributes as a physical server. On a per-virtual machine basis, the Cisco NX-OS Software offers VSANs, QoS policies, access control, performance monitoring, and data protection to promote the scalability and mobility of virtual machines. Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager provides end-to-end visibility from the virtual machine to the storage, with resource allocation, performance measurements, and predictions available on a per-virtual machine basis to enable rapid troubleshooting in mission-critical virtualized environments.
  • Comprehensive security: In addition to support for services such as VSANs, hardware-enforced zoning, ACLs, per-VSAN role-based access control (RBAC), and Cisco TrustSec® Fibre Channel link encryption, the Cisco MDS 9700 Series supports a comprehensive security framework consisting of RADIUS and TACACS+, Fibre Channel Security Protocol (FC-SP)1, Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol, and Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3). Cisco TrustSec®1 Fibre Channel link encryption delivers transparent, hardware-based 16-Gbps line-rate encryption of Fibre Channel data on 16-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules in addition to 10-Gbps line-rate encryption.
  • Resilient High-Performance ISLs: The Cisco MDS 9700 Series 16-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules support high-performance ISLs consisting of 16-Gbps or 10-Gbps secure Fibre Channel. Fibre Channel switching modules also offer PortChannel technology, with up to 16 links spanning any port on any module within a chassis grouped into a logical link for added scalability and resilience. Up to 4095 buffer-to-buffer credits can be assigned to a single Fibre Channel port, providing industry-leading extension of storage networks up to 4000 km at 2 Gbps, 2000 km at 4 Gbps, 1000 km at 8 Gbps, 500 km at 16 Gbps, or 680 km at 10 Gbps while maintaining full link bandwidth. The Cisco MDS 9700 Series switch architecture helps ensure that frames can never be reordered within a switch.
  • Sophisticated Diagnostics: The Cisco MDS 9700 48-Port 16-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module provides intelligent diagnostics, protocol decoding, and network analysis tools as well as integrated Cisco Call Home capability for added reliability, faster problem resolution, and reduced service costs.
  • Advanced FICON Services1: The Cisco MDS 9710 is mainframe ready, with full support for FICON and Linux environments.
