Cisco MDS 9718 Multilayer Director

Product Overview

The Cisco

®

MDS 9718 Multilayer Director (Figure 1) has the industry’s highest port density for a SAN director, with

768 line-rate 16-Gbps Fibre Channel ports. It is ready for future support for 768 line-rate 32-Gbps Fibre Channel ports. The MDS 9718 also supports the Cisco 24-port 40-Gbps Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) line card. It is designed for deployment in midsize to large enterprises. The MDS 9718 enables SAN consolidation and collapsedcore solutions for large enterprises, thereby reducing the number of managed switches and leading to easy-tomanage solutions, providing more front panel ports by reducing the number of ports used on Inter-Switch Links

(ISLs), and offering room for future growth.

The MDS 9718 addresses the stringent storage requirements for large virtualized data centers. As a director-class

SAN switch, the MDS 9718 uses the same operating system and management interface as other Cisco data center switches. It brings intelligent capabilities to a high-performance, protocol-independent switch fabric. You gain uncompromising availability, security, and scalability; simplified management; and the capability to flexibly integrate new technologies. The MDS 9718 lets you transparently deploy unified fabrics with Fibre Channel and FCoE connectivity for low total cost of ownership (TCO).

Product Highlights

The MDS 9718 offers the following features:

Outstanding SAN performance: The combination of the 16-Gbps Fibre Channel switching module and

Fabric-1 crossbar switching modules enables up to 1.5 terabits per second (Tbps) of front-panel Fibre

Channel throughput between modules in each direction for each of the 16 MDS 9718 payload slots. This amount is twice the bandwidth needed to support a 48-port 16-Gbps Fibre Channel module at full line rate.

Based on central arbitration and a crossbar fabric, the MDS 9718 architecture provides 16-Gbps line-rate, nonblocking, predictable performance across all traffic conditions for every port in the chassis. The MDS

9718 ships with six fabric modules and is ready for 768 line-rate 32-Gbps Fibre Channel ports.

High availability: The MDS 9718 provides best-in-class availability. The director meets the same industryleading availability standards as the other Cisco MDS 9700 Series Multilayer Directors. All major components, including the fabric card, are redundant. You get grid redundancy on the power supply and

1+1 redundant supervisors, and you can add a fabric card to enable N+1 fabric redundancy. The MDS 9718 combines nondisruptive software upgrades, stateful process restart and failover, and full redundancy of all major components for best-in-class availability.

● Industry-leading scalability: Power the largest storage environments with up to 48 Tbps of Fibre Channel bandwidth. A single chassis delivers 768 2/4/8-Gbps, 4/8/16-Gbps, or 10-Gbps full line-rate autosensing

Fibre Channel ports, or 768 10-Gbps FCoE or 384 full-line-rate 40-Gbps FCoE ports.

Intelligent network services: Migrate your SAN islands to enterprisewide storage networks with virtual SAN

(VSAN) technology, access control lists (ACLs) for hardware-based intelligent frame processing, and fabricwide quality of service (QoS).

Integrated hardware-based VSANs and Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR): Integration of VSANs into port-level hardware allows any port in a system or fabric to be partitioned to any VSAN. Deliver line-rate routing between any ports in a system or fabric without external routing appliances.

Intelligent storage services: Interoperability with intelligent service capabilities on other Cisco MDS 9000

Family platforms and the intelligent services switch provides services such as acceleration of storage applications for data replication, backup, and data migration to hosts and targets.

Smart zoning: Efficiently provision hardware access control entries specified by the zone set. Match smart zones to applications, application clusters, hypervisor clusters, or other data center entities. Avoid superfluous entries that allow servers (initiators) to talk to other servers or storage devices (targets) to talk to other storage devices. You gain larger zones with multiple initiators and targets without consuming excessive hardware resources. Automate zoning tasks and avoid the creation of many small zones.

Enhanced zoning: With basic zoning, two or more administrators can make simultaneous configuration changes. Upon activation, one administrator can overwrite the changes of another administrator. With enhanced zoning, all configuration is performed within a single configuration session. When a session begins, the switch locks down the entire fabric to implement the change, helping ensure consistency with the fabric.

● Virtual machine transparency: Deterministic hardware performance and a comprehensive feature set allow virtual machines to have the same SAN attributes as a physical server. On a per-virtual machine basis, the

Cisco NX-OS Software offers VSANs, QoS policies, access control, performance monitoring, and data protection to promote the scalability and mobility of virtual machines. Cisco Prime

Data Center Network

Manager (DCNM) provides end-to-end visibility all the way from the virtual machine to the storage device, with resource allocation, performance measurements, and predictions available on a per-virtual machine basis to enable rapid troubleshooting in mission-critical virtualized environments.

Comprehensive security: In addition to support for services such as VSANs, hardware-enforced zoning,

ACLs, per-VSAN role-based access control (RBAC), and Cisco TrustSec

®

Fibre Channel link encryption, the MDS 9700 Series supports a comprehensive security framework consisting of RADIUS and TACACS+,

Fibre Channel Security Protocol (FC-SP), Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), Secure Shell (SSH)

Protocol, and Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3).

Cisco TrustSec Fibre Channel link encryption delivers transparent, hardware-based 16-Gbps line-rate encryption of Fibre Channel data on 16-Gbps Fibre Channel switching modules in addition to 10-Gbps linerate encryption.

Unified SAN management: The MDS 9700 Series includes built-in storage network management with all features available through a command-line interface (CLI) or Cisco Prime DCNM, a centralized network management tool that simplifies management of unified fabrics. The network manager supports integration with third-party storage management applications to allow transparent interaction with existing management tools. The network manager supports federation of up to 10 DCNM servers to manage up to 150,000 devices using a single management pane.

● Sophisticated diagnostics: Intelligent diagnostics, protocol decoding, network analysis tools, and the Cisco

Call Home capability give you reliability, faster problem resolution, and reduced service costs. Starting with

Cisco MDS 9000 NX-OS Software Release 6.2, the Cisco Generic Online Diagnostics (GOLD) framework replaces the Cisco Online Health Management System (OHMS) diagnostic framework on the new MDS

9700 Series chassis. The Generic Online Diagnostics framework is a suite of diagnostic tools that verify that hardware and internal data paths are operating properly. It offers boot-time diagnostics, continuous monitoring, standby fabric loopback tests, and on-demand and scheduled tests. It enables the rapid fault isolation and systems monitoring that are critical in today's continuously evolving operating environments.

Multiprotocol architecture: A multilayer architecture enables a consistent feature set over a protocolindependent switch fabric. The MDS 9718 transparently integrates Fibre Channel and FCoE.

2/4/8-Gbps, 4/8/16-Gbps, 10-Gbps Fibre Channel, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet: The MDS 9718 supports

2/4/8/16-Gbps and 10-Gbps ports on the Cisco MDS 9700 48-Port 16-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching

Module. The MDS 9718 also supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet clocked optics carrying Fibre Channel traffic.

10- and 40-Gbps FCoE: The MDS 9718 supports 10-Gbps FCoE with the 48-port 10-Gbps FCoE switching module and 40-Gbps FCoE with the 24-port 40-Gbps FCoE switching module.

Multihop FCoE: Extend connectivity from FCoE and Fibre Channel fabrics to FCoE and Fibre Channel storage devices.

Main Benefits

Reduce TCO with SAN Consolidation

With data growing exponentially, organizations need efficient, cost-effective, large-scale SANs. Scale while managing TCO with industry-leading port densities of up to 768 16-Gbps Fibre Channel ports per chassis, which gives you more room to grow in the future. Consolidate and collapse the data center architecture with from edgecore-edge to the edge-core or collapsed-core architectures. Deploy 1.5-Tbps front-panel Fibre Channel performance per slot and up to 48-Tbps front-panel Fibre Channel line-rate nonblocking system-level switching.

Deploy intelligent fabric services, VSANs for consolidating physical SAN islands while maintaining logical boundaries, and IVR for sharing resources across VSANs. Consolidate your data into fewer, larger, and more manageable SANs, thus reducing the hardware footprint and associated capital and operating expenses. On unified fabrics with converged LANs and SANs using lossless Ethernet, multihop FCoE protects investments in existing storage infrastructure with any-to-any connectivity across multiple protocols.

Enterprise-Class Availability

The MDS 9718 is designed from the foundation for high availability. In addition to meeting the basic requirements of nondisruptive software upgrades and redundancy of all critical hardware components, the MDS 9718 software architecture offers outstanding availability. The supervisor modules automatically restart failed processes, making the MDS 9718 exceptionally robust. In the rare event that a supervisor module is reset, complete synchronization between the active and standby supervisor modules helps ensure stateful failover with no disruption of traffic. The

MDS 9718 supports the MDS 9700 Series Supervisor -1E for heavier workloads. It does not support the MDS 9700

Series Supervisor- 1, which is supported on the MDS 9706 and the MDS 9710 platforms. On the other hand, the

MDS 9706 and MDS 9710 do not support the MDS 9700 Series Supervisor

– 1E.

The MDS 9718 provides the industry’s first redundancy on all major hardware components, as detailed in Table 1.

High availability is implemented at the fabric level using robust and high-performance Inter-Switch Links (ISLs).

The port-channel capability allows you to aggregate up to 16 physical links into one logical bundle. The bundle can consist of any speed-matched ports in the chassis, helping ensure that the bundle can remain active in the event of a port, application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), or module failure. ISLs in a port channel can have significantly different lengths. This capability is valuable in campus and metropolitan area network (MAN) environments, because logical links can now be spread over multiple physical paths, helping ensure uninterrupted connectivity even if one of the physical paths is disrupted. The MDS 9718 provides outstanding high availability, helping ensure that solutions exceed the 99.999 percent uptime requirements of today’s most demanding environments.

Business Transformation with Enterprise Cloud Deployment

With industry-leading scalability and pay-as-you-grow flexibility, the MDS 9718 enables you to quickly scale enterprise clouds up or down as needed. You also receive these benefits:

Multihop FCoE provisions storage in a multiprotocol unified fabric.

Robust security protects multitenancy cloud applications.

● Predictable high performance meets stringent service-level agreements (SLAs).

Resilient connectivity helps ensure always-on cloud infrastructure.

● Advanced traffic management capabilities, such as QoS, quickly and cost-efficiently allocate elastic network capabilities to cloud applications.

Furthermore, Cisco Prime DCNM provides resource monitoring and capacity planning on a per-virtual machine basis. You can efficiently:

Consolidate enterprise cloud deployments

Federate up to 10 Cisco Prime DCNM servers to easily manage large-scale clouds

● Use information through Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S)

–based developer APIs to deliver IT as a service

Advanced Traffic Management

Deploy and optimize large-scale fabrics more easily:

● Virtual output queue (VOQ): Helps ensure line-rate performance on each port, independent of traffic pattern, by eliminating head-of-line blocking.

Up to 4095 buffer-to-buffer credits: Using extended credits, allows up to 4095 buffer credits for the DS-

X9448-768K9 from a pool of more than 6000 buffer credits for a module. These credits can be allocated to ports as needed, greatly extending the distance of Fibre Channel SANs. Alternatively, 4095 buffer credits can be assigned to an individual port for optimal bandwidth utilization across distance.

● Port Channels: 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. The MDS

9000 Family switch architecture helps ensure that frames can never be reordered within a switch.

Fabric Shortest Path First (FSPF)

–based multipathing: Get the intelligence to load balance across up to 16

Fibre Channel or FCoE equal-cost paths and, in the event of a switch failure, dynamically reroute traffic.

● QoS: Manage bandwidth and control latency to prioritize critical traffic.

Ease of Management

The MDS 9718 provides three modes of management: the Cisco NX-API, the MDS 9000 Family CLI, Cisco Prime

DCNM, and integration with third-party storage management tools.

Starting with MDS NX-OS 7.3, the MDS 9700 Series supports the NX-API, a representational state transfer (REST)

API

–based framework for NX-OS. The NX-API provides programmatic access to the MDS 9700 Series over HTTP and HTTPS, letting users control the switch using a web browser. It provides CLI output in easy-to-read XML or

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format, simplifying scripting. NX-API data collection from a switch is considerably faster than with SNMP queries, and the NX-API can be used by Cisco Prime DCNM and third-party management tools.

Adhering to the syntax of the widely known Cisco IOS

®

Software CLI, the MDS 9000 Family CLI is consistent and easy to learn and delivers broad management capabilities. The MDS 9000 Family CLI provides optimal capabilities: for instance, it enables debugging modes for each switch feature and allows you to view a real-time updated activity log of control protocol exchanges. Each log entry is time-stamped, and entries are listed in chronological order.

Cisco Prime DCNM is the industry’s first unified SAN and LAN management solution. The network manager provides comprehensive management of NX-OS devices, including the MDS 9000 Family and Cisco Nexus

®

Family products. The manger provides an intuitive GUI that simplifies day-to-day operations and management of

Cisco unified fabrics in data center environments.

The Cisco Prime DCNM features include:

End-to-end performance management of SAN and LAN networks

● Self-service provisioning of intelligent and scalable fabrics

Centralized fabric management to facilitate resource movements, additions, and changes

● Proactive monitoring of the SAN and LAN and detection of performance degradation

Easier diagnosis and troubleshooting of data center outages

● Simplified operational management of virtualized data centers

Intuitive, large-scale fabric visualization along with domain views

● Fibre Channel slow-drain analysis and host-path redundancy

Scale-out architecture with the use of server-based federation

● Rule-based event notification and filtering

RBAC to provide separation between network and storage teams

Cisco Prime DCNM provides large-scale deployments through the use of scale-out server federated architecture with automated failover capability. The network manager’s Cisco Prime DCNM base management function is available at no charge. In addition, advanced features can be unlocked with a server- or switch-based license. The network manager DCNM can be delivered on Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems and supports both

PostgreSQL and Oracle databases. It also offers an ISO or OVA virtual appliance, which allows rapid deployment of the DCNM management infrastructure.

The MDS 9718 also supports power-on autoprovisioning (POAP) to automate software image upgrades and configuration file installation on newly deployed switches.

Comprehensive Solution for Robust Security

The extensive security framework of the MDS 9718 protects sensitive data crossing enterprise networks. It offers intelligent, port-level packet inspection, including the use of ACLs for hardware enforcement of zones, VSANs, and advanced port security features. VSANs are used to achieve greater security and stability by providing complete isolation of devices that are connected to the same physical SAN. IVR enables controlled sharing of resources between VSANs. In addition, Fibre Channel Security Protocol (FC-SP) provides switch-to-switch and host-to-switch

Diffie-Hellman Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (DH-CHAP) supporting RADIUS and TACACS+. This feature helps ensure that only authorized devices access protected storage networks. To further protect traffic within and between data centers, Cisco TrustSec Fibre Channel link encryption, available in the MDS 9700 Series

16-Gbps modules, lets you transparently encrypt ISLs at up to line-rate speeds.

Advanced Diagnostics and Troubleshooting Tools

Management of large-scale storage networks requires proactive diagnostics, tools to verify connectivity and route latency, and traffic analysis. We deliver a comprehensive tool set for analyzing, troubleshooting, and debugging storage networks. Power-on self-test (POST) and online diagnostics proactively monitor system health. You can identify the exact path and timing of flows with capabilities such as Fibre Channel traceroute. You can capture network traffic using Cisco Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) and Remote SPAN (RSPAN). Then you can analyze traffic with Cisco Fabric Analyzer, an embedded Fibre Channel analyzer. You can perform sophisticated performance analysis and SLA accounting by collecting port-based and flow-based statistics.

Convergence with Multihop FCoE

FCoE allows an evolutionary approach to network and I/O convergence. Preserve all Fibre Channel constructs; maintain the latency, security, and traffic management attributes of Fibre Channel; and preserve investments in

Fibre Channel tools, training, and SANs. Sharing the same operating system and management plane as the Cisco

Nexus switches, the MDS 9718 coexists invisibly in a unified fabric with any-to-any connectivity for Fibre Channel and FCoE.

● Air flow

The MDS 9718 provides 30 to 100 cubic feet per minute (CFM) total flow through each line-card slot depending on the line-card type and fan-speed setting.

With the MDS 9718 using front-to-back cold-aisle and hot-aisle air flow, Cisco recommends that you maintain a minimum air space of 7 inches (17.78 cm) between walls, such as in a cabinet, on the sides and on the top and bottom of the chassis. The chassis front air vents need a clearance of 12 inches, and the back air vents need a clearance of 36 inches from a solid obstruction such as a solid wall.
