Cisco MDS 9500 Multilayer Directors, HP C-Series Family
Overview
The HP C-Series, MDS 9500 Multilayer Directors deliver many unique innovations for constructing powerful, large scale storage
networks. With these innovations, users can build highly scalable, always available, high performance storage network solutions with
comprehensive security and unified management. The MDS 9500s have multiple layers of intelligence, including multi-protocol
support (Fibre Channel, iSCSI, FCIP), Virtual SANs (VSANs), embedded diagnostics and role-based security.
The MDS 9500 Directors deliver industry-leading scalability and performance (up to 2.4 Terabits per second internal system
bandwidth), high port density (up to 528-ports in an MDS 9513) and high availability to lower TCO and enable integrated SAN
infrastructures. HP delivers the Cisco MDS 9500 Multilayer Directors with high availability features inherent in the design. The base
units include a 6, 9 or 13 slot modular chassis with dual supervisor 2 modules and power supplies to help ensure smooth,
continuous operation and non-disruptive upgrade capability. The MDS 9513 also includes dual fabric 2 Modules making even the
backplane fabric both redundant and hot-swappable, thereby taking fabric availability to a higher plane. The open expansion slots
of the 9500 Directors can be filled by optional MDS 9000 Family Modules, which include 12, 24 and 48-port, 4Gb Fibre Channel
Modules, 24 and 48 port 8Gb performance Modules. Moreover, the 9500 Directors can filled with the 48-Port Host Optimized
Modules which provides 4-8Gb and 44-4Gb ports. Lastly, the 9500 Directors can be populated with the 4-port 10Gb Fibre
Channel Module as well as an MDS 9000 18/4 MultiServices Module with 18, 4Gb FC ports, 4, 1Gb IP ports and a cryptographic
processing engine enabling integrated Fibre Channel, FCIP and iSCSI operation. The 18/4 MultiServices Module along with the
optional MDS 9500 Storage Media Encryption package license can provide encryption for data at rest on storage tape media as
network-wide service for added security to the SAN environment. In addition, the 18/4 Multi-Service Module and MDS 9500 I/O
Acceleration package license will increase the speed of data transfer across a MAN or WAN environment resulting in better data
replication and backup performance. Most MDS 9000 modules are interchangeable across MDS 9500 Directors and 9200 Series
Fabric Switches, providing a smooth migration path, common sparing and investment protection.
Layered, intelligent features also include integration with fabric-based applications to fabric-wide services for a wide range of
solutions for business continuance, storage virtualization, network assisted backup and information life cycle management. All
integrated with HP Storage Essentials and CiscoWorks RME, delivering ease of administration, improved customer productivity, and
infrastructure management through a single pane-of-glass. This common software platform also ensures that the user's SAN
environment will scale seamlessly and adapt as business grows and technology evolves.

from any location. Cisco Fabric Manager may be used independently or in conjunction with third-party
management applications. Cisco provides an extensive API for integration with third-party and user
developed management tools.
Software Components, Optional
Cisco Fabric Manager
Server Package
The "Standard" Cisco Fabric Manager software that is included at no charge with the MDS family
switches provides basic switch configuration and troubleshooting capabilities. The Cisco Fabric Manager
Server (FMS) Package extends Cisco Fabric Manager by providing historical performance data collection
for network traffic hot-spot analysis, centralized management services and advanced application
integration.
Cisco Enterprise Package Cisco MDS switches have a set of advanced traffic engineering and advanced security features that are
recommended for all Enterprise SANs. These features are bundled together in a management
application called the Cisco MDS 9500 Enterprise Package.
Cisco MDS 9500
Family SME Package
Cisco MDS 9500 Family SME Package allows encryption of storage media (data at rest). Strong,
standard IEEE AES-256 encryption for heterogeneous tape devices and VTLs as well as tape data

Service and Support
For increased uptime, productivity and ROI -HP Care Pack packaged services for Storage
These days, you need to get the most out of your storage investment-you can't afford not to. When you buy HP storage products and
solutions, it's also a good time to think about what levels of service and support you may need. To help take the worry out of
deploying, designing, maintaining, and managing your environment, we've designed a portfolio of service options that are as:
flexible, reliable and scalable as your storage. Unlike storage-only vendors, we take a holistic approach to your entire environment,
bridging storage, servers, blades, software and network infrastructures with our HP Care Pack packaged services for Storage.
Protect your business beyond the warranty
When it comes to robustness and reliability, standard warranties on today's computing equipment have matured just as the
technologies have matured. Good news on some fronts-but also a source of potential problems and subsequent consequences that
come from depending on standard warranties alone. Standard warranty protects against product defects and some causes of
downtime- but not the business. By using a standard approach to warranty uplifts, such as HP Care Pack Services, you can reduce
downtime risks and be more certain of operational consistency for both mission-critical and standard business computing. Simply
put, HP Care Pack Services normalize the warranty of combined products - helping you proactively guard against unplanned
downtime.
Extending warranties with HP Care Pack Services
For cost-effective upgrading or extending your standard warranty, HP Care Pack Services offer a suite of standard reactive hardware
and software support services that are sold separately, or combined as with our Support Plus and Support Plus 24 services. The
portfolio also provides a combination of proactive and reactive services, such as Proactive 24 Service and Critical Service. In
addition, with HP Proactive Select we offer an innovative approach to service delivery that gives you the flexibility to acquire the
specific proactive services you need today, then add services as your needs evolve. HP Proactive Select offers a broad set of
technical or per-event type service options - including server, storage, and network, SAN device, and software, environment,
installation and education services. Services that you can mix and match depending on your specific requirements, from preliminary
planning and equipment delivery to installation, configuration, integration, and testing, through every level of ongoing support. Our
HP Care Pack packaged services for Storage assures help when you need it most. And for many products, post-warranty HP Care

NOTES:
1. Dimension convention is as follows:
H (Height) is the vertical dimension when looking at the front of the component, as it would be seen in the chassis. Exception
is the compact flash where H is when looking at the identification label on the part.
W (Width) is the horizontal (left to right) dimension when looking at the front of the component, as it would be seen in the
chassis. Exception is the compact flash where W is when looking at the identification label on the part.
D (Depth) is the front to back dimension when looking at the front of the component, as it would be seen in the chassis.
Exception is the compact flash where D is when looking at the identification label on the part.
2. Packaging dimensions are reference as if you were looking at the front of the chassis in the packaging, if you could see through
the packaging.

NOTES:
1. Dimension convention is as follows:
H (Height) is the vertical dimension when looking at the front of the component, as it would be seen in the chassis. Exception
is the compact flash where H is when looking at the identification label on the part.
W (Width) is the horizontal (left to right) dimension when looking at the front of the component, as it would be seen in the
chassis. Exception is the compact flash where W is when looking at the identification label on the part.
D (Depth) is the front to back dimension when looking at the front of the component, as it would be seen in the chassis.
Exception is the compact flash where D is when looking at the identification label on the part.
2. Packaging dimensions are reference as if you were looking at the front of the chassis in the packaging, if you could see through
the packaging.
