Scalable Networking Solutions of Fiber Channel Switch

The Cisco MDS 9396S 48 Ports Managed Switch (DS-C9396S-48EK9) is a high-performance, scalable networking solution for data centers and other enterprise environments. This switch offers 48 ports of Fibre Channel (FC) connectivity, as well as advanced features such as SAN zoning, fabric-based security, and data replication.

One of the key scalable networking solutions of the DS-C9396S-48EK9 is its ability to support multiple fabrics, which allows for the creation of separate, isolated SANs within a single switch. This allows for greater flexibility and scalability in data center environments, as different departments or applications can have their own dedicated SANs without the need for additional hardware.

Another key feature of the DS-C9396S-48EK9 is its support for data replication, which allows for the automatic copying of data between different SANs or devices. This can be used to create disaster recovery solutions, as well as to ensure that data is always available in case of a failure.

Additionally, the DS-C9396S-48EK9 offers advanced security features, such as fabric-based access control and encryption, to protect against unauthorized access and data breaches. This helps to ensure that sensitive data is always kept secure, even in large and complex data center environments.

Maximize Connectivity of Managed Switch

The Cisco MDS 9396S 48 Ports Managed Switch (DS-C9396S-48EK9) is a high-performance, modular switch designed for use in data center and enterprise environments. It features 48 ports of Fibre Channel and 4 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, providing a high level of connectivity for storage, data, and network traffic.

The switch is designed to maximize connectivity and performance, with features such as:

  • Non-blocking architecture: The switch's architecture allows for full-duplex data transmission on all ports, ensuring maximum throughput and minimal latency.
  • Virtual SANs (VSANs): The switch supports up to 256 VSANs, allowing for logical separation of traffic and improved security.
  • Quality of Service (QoS): The switch supports QoS, allowing for prioritization of different types of traffic, such as storage or data traffic.
  • Multi-protocol support: The switch supports Fibre Channel, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI), providing a high level of flexibility for different types of storage and data traffic.
  • Advanced security: The switch supports advanced security features, such as zone-based policy firewall, access control lists (ACLs), and Secure SHell (SSH) for secure remote management.
  • Easy management: The switch is managed through the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI and Cisco SAN-OS, providing an intuitive and easy-to-use interface for configuration and monitoring.

Features and Benefits of 16GBPS Switch Module

The Cisco MDS 9396S is a high-performance, modular, Fibre Channel switch designed for enterprise storage area networks (SANs). Some key features and benefits of this switch include:

  • 48 ports of native Fibre Channel: The switch has 48 ports of native Fibre Channel, which can be configured for either 8 or 16 Gbps speeds. This allows for high-speed connectivity to storage devices and other Fibre Channel devices.
  • Modularity: The switch is modular in design, which allows for easy expansion and replacement of components. This can help to reduce downtime and maintenance costs.
  • Advanced features: The switch supports advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and Fibre Channel Fabric Services (FCFS), which can help to optimize SAN performance and simplify SAN management.
  • High availability: The switch supports high availability features such as non-disruptive software upgrades, hitless failover, and redundant power supplies, which can help to ensure that the SAN remains available in the event of a failure.
  • Scalability: The switch supports up to 384 ports in a single SAN fabric, which allows for expansion as the needs of the organization grow.
  • Comprehensive management: The switch can be managed through a variety of methods such as Cisco SAN Management, Cisco DCNM, and SNMP, which allows for centralized management and monitoring of the SAN.
  • Energy-efficient: The switch supports Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE) and Cisco EnergyWise, which can help to reduce energy consumption and costs
