Mfr Part #: 01CV760
Maximum performance with up to 1.3 million input/output operations per second (IOPS) to support larger server virtualization deployments and scalable cloud initiatives, and performance to match new multicore processors, SSDs/flash storage, and faster server host bus architectures. Independent function, transmit and receive buffers, an on-chip CPU, DMA channels, and a firmware image for each port enable complete port-level isolation, prevent errors and firmware crashes from propagating across all ports, and provide predictable and scalable performance across all ports.
- Support forward error correction (FEC) to enhance reliability of transmission and thereby performance
- Industry-standard class-specific control-based frame prioritization Quality of Service (QoS) helps alleviate network congestion by prioritizing traffic for time-sensitive mission critical workloads for optimized performance
- T10-PI data integrity with high performance offload provides end-to-end data corruption protection. Support for Message Signaled Interrupts eXtended (MSI-X) improves host utilization and enhances application performance
- Using the Brocade ClearLink diagnostic port available on the Brocade Gen 5 switches, administrators can quickly run automated diagnostic tests to assess the health of links and fabric components.
