Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node
Product Overview
Many IT departments have consolidated their data centers and SANs, achieving great efficiencies along the way.
Large enterprises with consolidated SANs have hundreds or thousands of servers running business applications
interconnecting through a common network fabric, making the network fabric an ideal nexus from which to deploy
®
solutions such as SAN extension, acceleration, and encryption of data. The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage
Services Node provides a high-performance, flexible, unified platform for deploying enterprise-class disaster
recovery, business continuance, and intelligent fabric applications (Figure 1).
The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node hosts four independent service engines, which can each be
individually and incrementally enabled to scale as business requirements change, or be configured to run separate
applications. Based on the single service engine in the Cisco MDS 9000 18/4-Port Multiservice Module, this four-toone consolidation delivers dramatic hardware savings and frees valuable slots in the Cisco MDS 9500 Series
Multilayer Directors chassis.
The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node integrates transparently into the Cisco MDS 9500 Series
Multilayer Directors and the Cisco MDS 9222i Multiservice Modular Switch. Each of the four service engines
supports 4 Gigabit Ethernet IP storage services ports, for a total of 16 ports of Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP)
connectivity. Traffic can be switched between an IP port and any Fibre Channel port on a Cisco MDS 9000 Family
switch. The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node supports the full range of services available on other
Cisco MDS 9000 Family Fibre Channel switching modules, including virtual SANs (VSANs), security, and traffic
management.
The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node uses Cisco expertise and knowledge of IP networks to deliver
outstanding SAN extension performance, reducing latency for disk and tape with FCIP acceleration features,
including FCIP write acceleration and FCIP tape write and read acceleration. Hardware-based encryption helps
secure sensitive traffic with IP Security (IPsec), and hardware-based compression dramatically enhances
performance for both high- and low-speed links, enabling immediate cost savings in expensive WAN infrastructure.
Multiple Gigabit Ethernet ports within a single engine or across service engines can be grouped into a PortChannel
of up to 16 links for high availability and increased aggregate throughput. PortChannels can also be enabled for
FCIP tape read and write acceleration by running the optional Cisco MDS 9000 I/O Accelerator (IOA) Package on a
service engine anywhere in the fabric.
Natively integrating support for intelligent fabric applications, the Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node
provides a platform for distributed fabric services such as Cisco Storage Media Encryption (SME), which encrypts
data at rest on heterogeneous tape drives and virtual tape libraries (VTLs), and the Cisco MDS 9000 I/O Accelerator
feature, which provides acceleration and compression for synchronous replication applications. These advanced
functions are available to any device connected to the fabric, facilitating ease of deployment, scalability, and high
availability through clustering.

Data Sheet
●
Integrated hardware-based VSANs and Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR): The module enables deployment of
large-scale multisite and heterogeneous SAN topologies. Integration into port-level hardware allows any port
in a system or fabric to be partitioned into any VSAN. Integrated hardware-based IVR provides line-rate
routing between any ports in a system or fabric without the need for external routing appliances.
●
Intelligent network services: The module uses VSAN technology for hardware-enforced, isolated
environments in a single physical fabric, access control lists (ACLs) for hardware-based intelligent frame
processing, and advanced traffic management features such as Fibre Channel congestion control and
fabricwide quality of service (QoS) to facilitate migration from SAN islands to enterprisewide storage
networks.
●
Sophisticated diagnostics: The module provides intelligent diagnostics, protocol decoding, and network
analysis tools as well as integrated Call Home capability for added reliability, faster problem resolution, and
reduced service costs.

Channel Security Protocol (FC-SP), Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol, and
Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3) implementing the AES, VSANs, hardwareenforced zoning, ACLs, and per-VSAN role-based access control (RBAC). RBAC provides separate control
over management functions and access on a per-VSAN basis, enabling separation of duties among
administrators on the same physical switch. Gigabit Ethernet ports support IPsec authentication, data
integrity, and hardware-assisted data encryption.
●
IP Version 6 (IPv6) support: The module supports IPv6 as mandated by the U.S. Department of Defense
(DoD), Japan, and China. IPv6 support is provided for FCIP and for management traffic routed in band and
out of band.
Integrated FCIP for Remote SAN Extension
Data-distribution, data-protection, and business-continuance services are significant components of today's
information-centered businesses. The capability to efficiently replicate critical data on a global scale helps ensure a
higher level of data protection for valuable corporate information, and it also increases utilization of backup
resources and lowers total cost of storage ownership. The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node uses the
open standards FCIP protocol to extend the distance of current Fibre Channel solutions, enabling interconnection of
SAN islands over extended distances.
Advanced SAN Extension Features
The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node supports hardware-based FCIP compression to increase the
effective WAN bandwidth of SAN extension solutions. The module achieves up to a 40:1 compression ratio, with
typical ratios of 4:1 over a wide variety of data sources.
The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node supports IPsec encryption for secure transmission of sensitive
data over extended distances. Hardware enablement of IPsec helps ensure line-rate throughput. Together,
hardware-based compression and hardware-based encryption provide a high-performance, highly secure SAN
extension capability.
Additionally, the Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node supports FCIP write acceleration, a feature that
can significantly improve application performance when storage traffic is extended across long distances. When
FCIP write acceleration is enabled, WAN throughput is optimized by reducing the latency of command
acknowledgments. Similarly, the module supports FCIP tape acceleration, which significantly improves throughput
over WAN links for remote tape backup and restore operations.

Data Sheet
Cisco I/O Accelerator Feature
Synchronous replication applications and backups over MANs can benefit from Cisco IOA feature services such as
Fibre Channel disk write acceleration (FCWA), Fibre Channel tape read/write acceleration, Fibre Channel disk
compression, and PortChannels for FCIP tape acceleration.
Cisco Storage Media Encryption
Cisco SME protects data at rest on heterogeneous tape drives and VTLs in a SAN environment using secure IEEEstandard AES algorithms. Cisco SME has become important with the recent enactment of regulations that require
companies to store and protect data at rest for a specified number of years and publicly disclose security breaches.
Cisco SME enables data to be compressed, encrypted, and authenticated for centralized security management and
data management and recovery. Cisco SME services employ clustering technology to create a highly available
solution. The cryptographic cluster formed enhances reliability and availability, enables automated load balancing
and failover capabilities, and simplifies provisioning as a single SAN fabric service rather than as individual switches
or modules. The Cisco Key Management Center (KMC) provides integrated key management for Cisco SME, with
support for single- and multiple-site deployments, including automatic key replication and high-availability
deployments. Cisco KMC provides essential features such as key archival, secure export and import and translation
for distribution, and key shredding.
VSANs
Ideal for efficient, secure SAN consolidation, ANSI T11-standard VSANs enable more efficient storage network
utilization by creating hardware-based isolated environments with a single physical SAN fabric or switch. Each VSAN
can be zoned as a typical SAN and maintained with its own fabric services for added scalability and resilience.
VSANs allow the cost of SAN infrastructure to be shared among more users, while helping ensure segregation of
traffic and retaining independent control of configuration on a VSAN-by-VSAN basis.
Integrated SAN Routing
In another step toward deployment of efficient, cost-effective, consolidated storage networks, the Cisco MDS 9000
16-Port Storage Services Node supports IVR, the industry's first routing function for Fibre Channel. IVR allows
selective transfer of data between specific initiators and targets on different VSANs while maintaining isolation of
control traffic within each VSAN. With IVR, data can transit VSAN boundaries while maintaining control plane
isolation, thereby maintaining fabric stability and availability. IVR eliminates the need for external routing appliances,
greatly increasing routing scalability while delivering line-rate routing performance, simplifying management, and
eliminating the challenges associated with maintaining separate systems. IVR lowers total cost of SAN ownership.
Integrated Mainframe Support
The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node is mainframe ready with full support for IBM zSeries Fiber
Connection (FICON) and Linux environments. Certified by IBM for attachment to all FICON-enabled devices in an
IBM zSeries operating environment, the Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node supports transport of the
FICON protocol in both cascaded and noncascaded fabrics, as well as an intermix of FICON and open systems
Fibre Channel Protocol traffic on the same switch. Virtual SANs simplify intermixing of SAN resources among IBM
z/OS, mainframe Linux, and open systems environments, enabling increased SAN utilization and simplified SAN
management. VSAN-based intermix mode eliminates the uncertainty and instability often associated with zoningbased intermixing techniques. The use of VSANs also greatly reduces the probability that misconfiguration or
component failure in one VSAN will affect operation in other VSANs. VSAN-based management access control
simplifies partitioning of SAN management responsibilities between mainframe and open systems environments,
enhancing security. FICON VSANs can be managed using the integrated Cisco Fabric Manager, Cisco commandline interface (CLI), or IBM Control Unit Port (CUP)-enabled management tools including the SA/390 Resource
Measurement Facility (RMF) and dynamic channel path management (DCM).

Advanced Traffic Management
The advanced traffic management capabilities integrated into the Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node
simplify deployment and optimization of large-scale fabrics.
●
Virtual output queuing: Helps ensure line-rate performance on each port, independent of traffic pattern, by
eliminating head-of-line blocking
●
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 speed-matched ports from any
module in the chassis, helping ensure that the bundle can remain 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
●
QoS: Can be used to manage bandwidth and control latency, to prioritize critical traffic
●
Fibre Channel congestion control: Provides end-to-end, feedback-based congestion control that augments
the Fibre Channel buffer-to-buffer credit mechanism, enabling enhanced traffic management
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 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node implements diagnostic capabilities such as
Fibre Channel Traceroute to detail the exact path and timing of flows and Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) to
intelligently capture network traffic. After traffic has been captured, it can be analyzed with the Cisco Fabric Analyzer,
an embedded Fibre Channel analyzer. Comprehensive port-based and flow-based statistics facilitate sophisticated
performance analysis and service-level agreement (SLA) accounting. With the Cisco MDS 9000 Family, Cisco
delivers a comprehensive toolset for troubleshooting and analysis of storage networks.
Comprehensive Solution for Robust Network Security
Addressing the need for fail-proof security in storage networks, the Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node
offers an extensive security framework to protect highly sensitive data moving in today's enterprise networks. The
module employs intelligent frame 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 help ensure that logical unit numbers (LUNs) can be accessed
by only specific hosts (LUN zoning), to limit SCSI read commands 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.
●
FC-SP provides switch-switch and host-switch Diffie-Hellman Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol
(DH-CHAP) authentication supporting RADIUS and TACACS+, to help ensure that only authorized devices
can access protected storage networks.
●
For both FCIP and iSCSI deployments, the comprehensive IPsec protocol suite delivers secure
authentication, data integrity, and hardware-based encryption.
