            For the most demanding storage networking environments, the 32-port 8-Gbps advanced Fiber Channel switching module delivers uncompromising performance. The 32-port 8-Gbps advanced switching module delivers fullduplex aggregate performance of 512 Gbps, making this module well suited for attachment of high-performance 8-Gbps storage subsystems or either 8- or 10-Gbps Inter-Switch Links (ISLs).

            This 8-Gbps advanced module enables you to consolidate SAN deployments with fewer hardware components, consolidate workloads from hundreds of virtual machines with unparalleled performance, and scale with incremental updates as your SAN grows while protecting your existing investment. Cisco MDS 9000 Family 8-Gbps Advanced Fiber Channel Switching Module also provides Cisco VMpath technology, which enables advanced virtual machine-aware SAN provisioning and monitoring for virtualized data centers. With Cisco VMpath, you can monitor, manage, and control SAN resource allocation and performance on a per-virtual machine basis and map out paths all the way from the server to storage, enabling tracking of mission-critical workloads end-to-end.

            Cisco MDS 9000 Family Advanced Fiber Channel Switching Module is hot-swappable and compatible with 10-Gbps interfaces, and it supports hot-swappable Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) transceivers. Each port supports 500 buffer credits for exceptional extensibility without requiring additional licensing.

            The 8-Gbps advanced Fiber Channel switching module continues to provide previously available features such as - predictable performance and high availability, advanced traffic management capabilities, integrated VSANs and IVR, resilient high-performance ISLs, comprehensive security frameworks, fault detection and isolation of errored packets, and sophisticated diagnostics.
