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 you great 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 optimized for cost and performance in a wide range of application environments. This application-optimized approach to port deployment can reduce the number of switches and ISLs required in a storage network, in many cases eliminating 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 1584 ports per rack: fewer switches simplify management and reduce deployment and operational costs, resulting in significantly lower TCO. Figure 1 shows the three configurations of Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules.

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. Additionally, ports can be configured with Cisco 2- and 4-Gbps coarse wave division multiplexing (CWDM) SFPs for connectivity up to 100 kilometers at 2 Gbps, or 40 kilometers at 4 Gbps. Each port supports 250 buffer credits for maximum 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.

   Integrated hardware-based VSANs and Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR): Enable deployment of large-scale multisite and heterogeneous SAN topologies. Integration into port-level hardware allows any port or any virtual machine (VM) within a system or fabric to be partitioned into any VSAN. Integrated hardware-based IVR provides line-rate routing between any ports within a system or fabric without the need for external routing appliances.

   Advanced FICON services: Support 1/2/4/8-Gbps FICON environments, including cascaded FICON fabrics, VSAN-enabled intermix of mainframe and open systems environments, and N_Port ID virtualization for mainframe Linux partitions. CUP support enables in-band management of Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches from the mainframe management console.

   Comprehensive security framework: Supports 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), VSANs, hardware-enforced zoning, ACLs, and per-VSAN role-based access control.

   Sophisticated diagnostics: Provide 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.

   Port density and configuration flexibility: Provides 24-port, 48-port, and 4/44-port configurations to optimize performance, flexibility, and density; supports industry-leading port densities of up to 528 8-Gbps Fibre Channel ports per chassis and 1584 ports per rack.

   Fibre Channel Link Encryption: Delivers transparent, hardware-based, line-rate encryption of Fibre Channel data in motion between any Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps modules, preserving integrity and confidentiality of Fibre Channel traffic.

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 comprehensive security features make the Cisco MDS 9000 Family the platform of choice when you require high scalability and low TCO.

Virtual Machine Transparency

Server virtualization means that a SAN must concurrently support thousands of diverse, tiered applications, each with unique performance requirements. These applications and the virtual machines they run on are not bounded by physical servers and network ports. The Cisco MDS 9000 Family provides deterministic hardware performance and a rich feature set that allows VMs to have the same SAN attributes as a physical server. On a per-VM basis, the MDS 9000 Family NX-OS offers VSAN isolation, QoS policies, access control, performance monitoring, and data protection to enable scalability and mobility of VMs.

Virtual SANs

Ideal 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 ensuring absolute segregation of traffic and retaining independent control of configuration on a VSAN-by-VSAN basis. Through unique industry-first virtualization features, VSANs benefits 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 the most efficient, cost-effective, consolidated storage networks, the Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules support IVR 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 maintaining fabric stability and availability. Integrated IVR lowers TCO by eliminating the need for external routing appliances, greatly increasing routing scalability while delivering line-rate performance, simplifying management, and nearly eliminating the challenges associated with maintaining separate systems.

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 simplify intermix of SAN resources between z/OS, mainframe Linux, and open systems environments, allowing for increased utilization and simplified management of SANs. VSAN-based intermix mode avoids the uncertainty and instability often associated with zoning-based intermix techniques. VSANs also greatly reduce the probability that a misconfiguration or component failure in one VSAN affects other VSANs. VSAN-based management access control enhances 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).

Advanced Traffic Management

Advanced traffic management capabilities integrated into every Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module simplify deployment and optimization of large-scale fabrics.

   Virtual output queuing: Helps ensure line-rate performance on each port, independent of traffic pattern, by eliminating head-of-line blocking.

   Up to 4095 buffer-to-buffer credits: Can be assigned to any individual port for optimal bandwidth utilization across distance.

   PortChannels: Allow you to aggregate up to 16 physical ISLs into a single logical bundle, providing optimized bandwidth utilization across all links. The bundle can be a mix of any port from any module in the chassis, helping ensure that the bundle can remain active even in the event of a module failure.

   Fabric shortest path first (FSPF)-based multipathing: Provides the intelligence to load balance across up to 16 equal cost paths and dynamically reroute traffic in the event of a switch failure.

   Quality of Service: Helps manage bandwidth and control latency to prioritize critical traffic, available on every port.

   Fibre Channel Congestion Control (FCC): Augments the Fibre Channel buffer to-buffer credit mechanism for enhanced traffic management, through end-to-end feedback-based mechanism.

   Port Bandwidth Reservation: Allows you to define dedicated bandwidth on a per-port basis.

Advanced Diagnostics and Troubleshooting Tools

The Cisco MDS 9000 Family integrates proactive diagnostics, tools to verify connectivity and route latency, and mechanisms for capturing and analyzing traffic, helping simplify the management of large-scale storage networks. Power-on self-test (POST) and online diagnostics provide proactive health monitoring. Integrated hardware functionality enables diagnostic capabilities such as Fibre Channel Traceroute for detailing the exact path and timing of flows, Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN), and Remote Switched Port Analyzer (RSPAN) to intelligently capture network traffic. Captured Fibre Channel traffic can be analyzed with the embedded Cisco Fabric Analyzer. Comprehensive port-based and flow-based statistics enable sophisticated performance analysis and service-level agreement (SLA) accounting.

Comprehensive Solution for Robust Security

The Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules offer an extensive security framework to protect highly sensitive data crossing today's enterprise networks. The 8-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules employ intelligent packet inspection at the port level, including the application of ACLs for hardware enforcement of zones, VSANs, and advanced Port Security features. Extended zoning capabilities ensure that logical unit numbers (LUNs) are accessible only by specific hosts (LUN zoning), limit SCSI read commands for a certain zone (read-only zoning), and restrict broadcasts to selected zones (broadcast zones). VSANs provide mutual isolation among devices connected to the same physical SAN, while IVR enables controlled sharing of resources between VSANs. In addition, FC-SP provides switch-switch and host-switch Diffie-Hellman Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (DH-CHAP) authentication, supporting RADIUS or TACACS+ to help ensure that only authorized devices access protected storage networks. Fibre Channel Link Encryption, available on the Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps modules, addresses the growing security compliance requirements by allowing you to transparently encrypt ISL traffic, providing an additional layer of protection for data within and between datacenters.
