Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Director

The Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Director is a director-class SAN switch designed for deployment in large-scale storage networks to enable enterprise clouds and business transformation. Layering a comprehensive set of intelligent features onto a high-performance, protocol-independent switch fabric, the Cisco MDS 9513 addresses the stringent requirements of large virtualized data center storage environments: uncompromising high availability, security, scalability, ease of management, and transparent integration of new technologies for extremely flexible data center SAN solutions. Sharing the same operating system and management interface with other Cisco data center switches, the Cisco MDS 9513 enables seamless deployment of unified fabrics with high-performance Fibre Channel and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) connectivity to achieve low total cost of ownership (TCO). Compatible with all generations of Cisco MDS 9000 Family switching modules, the Cisco MDS 9513 continues to provide outstanding investment protection.

Product Highlights
The Cisco MDS 9513 offers the following main features:

  • Industry-leading scalability: The Cisco MDS 9513 combines non-disruptive software upgrades, stateful process restart and failover, and full redundancy of all major components for best-in-class availability. With 8.4 terabits per second (Tbps) of system bandwidth and up to 528 1/2/4/8-Gbps autosensing Fibre Channel ports in a single chassis or up to 1584 Fibre Channel ports in a single rack, the Cisco MDS 9513 leads the industry in scalability and is designed to meet the requirements of the largest data center storage environments. Furthermore, Cisco MDS 9513 supports all generations of Cisco MDS 9000 Family switching modules, providing outstanding investment protection.
  • Multiprotocol architecture: The multilayer architecture of the Cisco MDS 9000 Family enables a consistent feature set over a protocol-independent switch fabric. The Cisco MDS 9513 transparently integrates Fibre Channel, FCoE, IBM Fiber Connectivity (FICON), Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI), and Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) in one system.
    • 1/2/4/8-Gbps and 10-Gbps Fibre Channel: The Cisco MDS 9513 supports both 1/2/4/8-Gbps and 10-Gbps ports on the new 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel switching modules as well as existing 10-Gbps and 8-Gbps Cisco MDS 9000 Family Fibre Channel switching modules for deployment in both open systems and FICON environments.
    • 10-Gbps Multihop FCoE: The Cisco MDS 9513 supports multihop FCoE, extending connectivity from FCoE/Fibre Channel fabrics to FCoE/Fibre Channel storage devices. With 10-Gbps Multihop FCoE switching modules, the Cisco MDS 9513 supports extension of a Fibre Channel SAN to devices that are connected using FCoE protocol over Ethernet, thereby extending the rich capabilities of intelligent services to unified fabric deployments.
    • 1/2/4/8-Gbps and 10-Gbps FICON: The Cisco MDS 9513 supports advanced FICON services including cascaded FICON fabrics, VSAN-enabled intermix of mainframe and open systems environments, and N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV) for mainframe Linux partitions. Cisco Control Unit Port (CUP) support enables in-band management of Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches from mainframe management applications.
  • Outstanding SAN Performance: The combination of the 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel switching modules and the Fabric3 Crossbar switching modules enables 256 Gbps of throughput between modules in each direction for each of the eleven MDS 9513 payload slots. This allows every port on the 32-port Advanced module to run at full line rate. The arbitrated local switching capability described below extends the throughput of the 48-port Advanced module up to a maximum of 384 Gbps in each direction when some of the traffic can be switched locally between ports on a single module.
  • 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. Furthermore, Cisco Arbitrated Local Switching feature provides high-performance, predictable, fair switching between all hosts attached to the same 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel switching module and their associated storage devices.
    • Smart Zoning: When the Smart Zoning feature is enabled, Cisco MDS 9000 Family 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.
    • Integrated hardware-based VSANs and Inter-VSAN Routing (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.
    • Arbitrated local switching: The Cisco Arbitrated Local Switching feature provides line-rate switching across all ports on the same module without degrading performance or increasing latency for traffic to and from other modules in the chassis. This capability is achieved through Cisco MDS 9500 Series Multilayer Directors crossbar architecture with a central arbiter arbitrating fairly between local traffic and traffic to and from other modules.
  • Platform for intelligent storage applications: The Cisco MDS 9513 serves as a platform for intelligent services such as acceleration of storage applications for data replication and backup, storage media encryption for tapes and disks, data migration, and third-party applications such as continuous data protection and remote replication.
    • I/O Accelerator (IOA): Cisco IOA is a transport- and speed-agnostic traffic acceleration service capable of mitigating the effects of distance (and hence latency) on application throughput, thereby bringing flexibility to the choice of the data center location. IOA is supported on the Cisco MDS 9000 18/4-Port Multiservice Module (MSM) and 16-Port Storage Services Node (SSN-16).
    • Cisco Storage Media Encryption (SME): Cisco SME services offer solutions that enable companies to address Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) 2.0 compliance and other legislative regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which require companies to store and protect data at rest for a specified number of years while publicly disclosing security breaches. Cisco SME is a fabric-based service and so is scalable and non-disruptive and addresses heterogeneous server and storage environments. Cisco SME enables data on disk arrays, on tapes, and in virtual tape libraries (VTLs) to be compressed, encrypted, and authenticated for centralized security management and data management and recovery. Cisco SME services employ clustering technology to create a highly available solution. The cryptographic cluster formed enhances reliability and availability, provides automated load balancing and failover capabilities, and simplifies provisioning as a single SAN fabric service rather than as individual switches or modules. The Cisco Key Management Center (KMC) provides comprehensive key management for Cisco SME, with support for single- and multiple-site deployments. Cisco KMC provides essential features such as key archival, secure export and import and translation for distribution, and key shredding.
    • Cisco Data Mobility Manager (DMM): Cisco DMM is a fabric-based data migration solution that transfers block data non-disruptively across heterogeneous storage volumes and across distances, whether the host is online or offline. This data center-class solution helps address the challenges experienced in migrating data, such as downtime, the need to add data migration software to servers, and the potential for data loss and corruption. Enabling the Cisco DMM feature on Cisco MDS 9000 18/4-Port Multiservice Modules located anywhere in the SAN allows data migration to be configured without host agents, without rewiring, with minimal effect on performance, and without downtime.
  • Virtual machine transparency: The Cisco MDS 9000 Family 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 MDS 9000 NX-OS Software offers VSANs, QoS policies, access control, performance monitoring, and data protection to promote the scalability and mobility of virtual machines. Cisco Data Center Network Manager for SAN (DCNM-SAN) provides end-to-end visibility all the way from the virtual machine down to 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), Cisco SME for tapes and disks, and Cisco TrustSec® Fibre Channel link encryption, the Cisco MDS 9000 Family supports a comprehensive security framework consisting of RADIUS and TACACS+, Fibre Channel Security Protocol (FC-SP), Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol, and Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3) implementing Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Cisco TrustSec Fibre Channel link encryption delivers transparent, hardware-based 8-Gbps line-rate encryption of Fibre Channel data on both generations of 8-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules in addition to 10-Gbps line-rate encryption on 8-Gbps Advanced Fibre Channel Switching modules.
  • Unified SAN management: The Cisco MDS 9000 Family includes built-in storage network management with all features available through a command-line interface (CLI) or Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM, formerly called Cisco Fabric Manager), a centralized management tool that simplifies management of unified fabrics. Cisco DCNM supports integration with third-party storage management applications to allow seamless interaction with existing management tools. Cisco DCNM supports federation of up to 10 Cisco DCNM servers to manage up to 150,000 devices using a single management pane.
  • Sophisticated diagnostics: The Cisco MDS 9513 provides intelligent diagnostics, protocol decoding, and network analysis tools as well as integrated Call Home capability for added reliability, faster problem resolution, and reduced service costs.
