Description: Brocade VDX Switch Fabric Module - Switch - L3 - for VDX 8770-4, 8770-8
Mfr Part #: BR-VDX8770-SFM-1
The Brocade VDX 8770 switch is a highly scalable, low-latency, 1/10/40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) modular switch. Designed to easily scale out Brocade VCS fabrics, the Brocade VDX 8770 switch brings levels of performance to VCS fabric deployments. The Brocade VDX 8770 is designed with advanced capabilities, including 100 GbE and hardware-enhanced SDN support, to support data center networking a decade or more into the future.
- Support for more than 8000 ports in a single VCS fabric, with efficient multipathing at layers 3, enabling the switch to serve extremely large-scale deployments with the best-possible network utilization
- Support for 1, 10, and 40 GbE to satisfy current needs, with 100 GbE readinesses to support future bandwidth requirements and technology
- 4 Tbps per slot line-rate design for substantial capacity and headroom
- 4-microsecond latency to assure rapid response for latency-sensitive applications
- Support for up to 384,000 MAC addresses per fabric for extensive virtualization scalability
- Elastic scale-out
With network OS 3.0, Brocade delivers intelligent, efficient routing to VCS fabrics. It enables highly elastic layer 2 and layer 3 domains with multiple active layer 3 gateways and highly efficient load balancing at layer 3, on top of layer 2 ECMP and Brocade ISL Trunking. The results are more effective link utilization that reduces overall cost, more resilience that results in greater application uptime, and a more flexible, agile network that helps organizations rapidly adapt to changing business conditions.
- Server virtualization automation support
Brocade VCS Fabric technology offers unique features to support virtualized server and storage environments. Brocade VM-aware network automation provides secure connectivity and full visibility to virtualized server resources with dynamic learning and activation of port profiles. By communicating directly with VMware vCenter, it eliminates manual configuration of port profiles and supports VM mobility across VCS fabrics within a data center.
- Proactive monitoring
Brocade fabric watch is an innovative switch health monitoring feature available on all Brocade VDX switches. Fabric watch monitors the health of certain switch components and, based on the threshold set, declares each component as marginal or down.
