SAN Switches

As the value and volume of business data continue to rise, organizations need technology solutions that are easy to implement and manage, and that can grow and change with minimal disruption. The Brocade Switches are designed to consolidate connectivity in rapidly growing mission-critical environments—combining 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gbit/sec technology in configurations of 8, 16, 24, 40, 48, 64, or 80 ports in an efficiently designed 1U or 2U package. The combination of density, performance, and “pay-as-you-grow” scalability increases server and storage utilization while reducing complexity for virtualized servers and storage.


Used at the fabric core or at the edge of a tiered core-to-edge infrastructure, the Brocade Switches operates seamlessly with existing Brocade switches through native E_Port connectivity into Brocade Fabric OS®(FOS) or M-Enterprise OS (M-EOS) environments. The evolutionary design makes it very efficient in power, cooling, and rack density to help enable medium- and large-scale server and storage consolidation. The Brocade Switches also includes Adaptive Networking capabilities to more efficiently manage resources in highly consolidated environments while providing the highest service levels to data center applications.
