KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Introducing the VSAN
VSANs allow more efficient storage network utilization by creating hardware-based isolated environments within a single physical SAN fabric or
switch. Each VSAN can be zoned as a typical SAN and maintains its own fabric services for added scalability and resilience. VSANs allow the cost
of SAN infrastructure to be shared among more users, while ensuring segregation of traffic and retaining independent control of configuration on a
VSAN-by-VSAN basis.
To provide fabric isolation, the Cisco MDS 9216 supports Inter-VSAN Routing, the industry’s first routing function for Fibre Channel. Inter-VSAN
Routing allows selective transfer of data traffic between specific initiators and targets on different VSANs while maintaining isolation of control
traffic within each VSAN. Using Inter-VSAN Routing, data can transit VSAN boundaries while maintaining control plane isolation, thereby
maintaining fabric stability and availability.
Multiprotocol Intelligence for Investment Protection
The unique architecture of the Cisco MDS 9216 allows seamless integration of new transport protocols for maximum flexibility. Beginning with
Fibre Channel, iSCSI, FCIP, and FICON the Cisco MDS 9216 is a robust multi-protocol platform designed for deployment of cost-optimized storage
networks. Today, users can implement 2-Gbps Fibre Channel for high-performance applications, iSCSI over Ethernet for cost-effective connectivity
to shared storage pools, FCIP for connectivity between data centers, and FICON for mainframe connectivity. The Cisco MDS 9216 is designed to
support future storage protocols so that users can seamlessly migrate to new technologies while retaining a consistent set of features, services, and
management tools.
ADVANCED TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT FOR HIGH-PERFORMANCE, RESILIENT FABRICS
The following advanced traffic-management capabilities integrated into the Cisco MDS 9216 simplify deployment and optimization of large-scale
fabrics.
• Virtual Output Queuing ensures line rate performance on each port, independent of traffic pattern, by eliminating head-of-line blocking.
• 255 buffer-to-buffer credits are assigned to each port for optimal bandwidth utilization across distance.
• PortChannels allow users to aggregate up to 16 physical ISLs into a single logical bundle, providing optimized bandwidth utilization across all
links. The bundle can consist of any port from any module in the chassis, ensuring that the bundle remains active even in the event of a module
failure.

• Fabric Shortest Path First (FSPF)-based multipathing provides the intelligence to load balance across up to 16 equal cost paths and, in the event
of a switch failure, dynamically reroute traffic.
• Quality of service can be used to manage bandwidth and control latency, to prioritize critical traffic.
• Fibre Channel Congestion Control (FCC), an end-to-end, feedback-based congestion control mechanism, augments the Fibre Channel buffer-tobuffer credit mechanism to provide enhanced traffic management.
INDUSTRY’S MOST ADVANCED DIAGNOSTICS AND TROUBLESHOOTING TOOLS
Management of large-scale storage networks requires proactive diagnostics, tools to verify connectivity and route latency, and mechanisms for
capturing and analyzing traffic. The Cisco MDS 9000 Family integrates the industry’s most advanced analysis and diagnostic tools. Power-on self
test (POST) and online diagnostics provide proactive health monitoring. The Cisco MDS 9216 implements diagnostic capabilities such as Fibre
Channel Traceroute for detailing the exact path and timing of flows and Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) to intelligently capture network traffic.
Once traffic has been captured, it can then be analyzed with the Cisco Fabric Analyzer, an embedded Fibre Channel analyzer. Comprehensive portand flow-based statistics facilitate sophisticated performance analysis and service-level agreement (SLA) accounting. With the Cisco MDS 9000
Family, Cisco Systems® delivers the most comprehensive tool set for troubleshooting and analysis of storage networks.
COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION FOR ROBUST SECURITY
Addressing the need for airtight security in storage networks, the Cisco MDS 9216 offers an extensive security framework to protect highly sensitive
data crossing today’s enterprise networks. The Cisco MDS 9216 employs intelligent packet inspection at the port level, including the application of
ACLs for hardware enforcement of zones, VSANs, and advanced Port Security features.
Extended zoning capabilities are enabled to ensure that LUNs are accessible only by specific hosts (LUN zoning), to limit SCSI read command for a
certain zone (read-only zoning), and to restrict broadcasts to only the selected zones (broadcast zones). VSANs are used to achieve higher security
and greater stability by providing complete isolation among devices that are connected to the same physical SAN. In addition, Fibre Channel
Security Protocol (FC-SP) provides switch-switch and host switch Diffie-Hellman Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (DH-CHAP)
authentication supporting RADIUS or TACACS+, to ensure that only authorized devices access protected storage networks.
This functionality, in conjunction with management access and control plane security, makes the Cisco MDS 9000 Family the most secure platform
of its kind.
EASE OF MANAGEMENT
Delivering SAN capabilities means delivering management capabilities. To meet the needs of all users, the Cisco MDS 9216 provides three principal
modes of management: Cisco MDS 9000 Family Command Line Interface (CLI), Cisco Fabric Manager, and integration with third-party storage
management tools.
The Cisco MDS 9216 presents a consistent, logical CLI. Adhering to the syntax of widely known Cisco IOS® Software CLI, the Cisco MDS 9000
Family CLI is easy to learn and delivers broad management capability. The Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI is an extremely efficient and direct
interface designed to provide optimal functionality to administrators in enterprise environments.
