Brocade offers Fibre Channel switch technology in blade server module form factors for all major blade server vendors. With built-in SAN connectivity, organizations can reduce capital expenses for cabling and connectivity while simplifying the deployment, management, and expansion of their data center fabric environments. The result is significant savings of time, money, and resources.
Brocade expands the benefits for SAN I/O modules with the Brocade Access Gateway. The Brocade Access Gateway is a Fabric OS feature that enables connectivity to any data center fabric through NPIV-compliant/enabled fabric edge switches and directors. This solution runs on and connects to hardware that is already qualified by leading OEMs, and it can be selected using Brocade Web Tools or the Command Line Interface (CLI).
Designed for high performance and availability in mission-critical environments, Brocade SAN I/O modules are ideal for use as small standalone SANs or as edge switches within larger core-to-edge environments. The modules feature industry-leading 4 Gbit/sec Fibre Channel performance along with a wide range of ultra-high-availability characteristics.
