Three module configurations offer tiered connectivity to address the diverse SAN performance requirements:
- Cisco MDS 9000 24-Port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Modules are an ideal solution for Inter-Switch Links (ISLs) and high-end storage connectivity
- Cisco MDS 9000 48-Port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Modules deliver an ideal balance of performance and port density for connection of highly virtualized servers
- Cisco MDS 9000 4/44-Port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Modules offer an affordable solution for consolidating standard servers
Cisco MDS 9000 8-Gbps modules support both 4-Gbps Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) and 8-Gbps SFP+ optics. They are supported in MDS 9500 Director chassis alongside previous-generation 4-Gbps and 2-Gbps modules, preserving customer investments.
