The Brocade 7800 Extension Switch helps provide the fastest, most reliable, and most cost-effective network infrastructure for remote data replication, backup, and migration. Leveraging next-generation Fiber Channel and advanced FCIP technology, the Brocade 7800 provides a flexible and extensible platform to move more data faster and further than ever before.
Whether configured for simple point-to-point or comprehensive multisite SAN extension, the Brocade 7800 addresses the most demanding business continuity, compliance, and global data access requirements. Up to sixteen 8 Gbps Fiber Channel ports and six 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports provide unmatched Fiber Channel and FCIP bandwidth, port density, and throughput for maximum application performance over WAN links.
The Brocade 7800 is an ideal platform for building or expanding a high-performance SAN extension infrastructure. It leverages cost-effective IP WAN transport to extend open systems and mainframe disk and tape storage applications over distances that would otherwise be impossible, impractical, or too expensive with standard Fiber Channel connections.
