MDS 9500 and 9200
Series Switches
High Performance SAN The Cisco MDS 9000 Family Multiprotocol Services Module supports hardware-based FCIP
Extension with
compression to maximize the effective WAN bandwidth of SAN extension solutions. The Cisco
Compression and FCIP Multiprotocol Services Module achieves up to a 30:1 compression ratio, with typical ratios of 2:1
Write Acceleration
over a wide variety of data sources.
The Cisco Multiprotocol Services module also supports FCIP Write Acceleration, a feature that
can significantly improve application performance when storage traffic is extended across
distance. When FCIP Write Acceleration is enabled, WAN throughput is optimized by reducing the
latency of command acknowledgements. Similarly, the Cisco Multiprotocol Services module
supports FCIP Tape Acceleration, which significantly improves throughput over WAN links for
remote tape backup operations.
Together, FCIP Compression, FCIP Write Acceleration, and FCIP Tape Acceleration enable
optimal performance of business continuance services.
iSCSI for Cost-Effective Many IT managers have been hesitant to extend SAN access beyond their mission-critical
Extension of SAN
applications to midrange data center applications because of the complexity and cost involved in
Storage to IP-Enabled upgrading large numbers of midrange servers to Fibre Channel. The Cisco MDS 9000 Family
Servers
Multiprotocol Services Module addresses these limitations by enabling IT organizations to extend
their storage networks using cost-effective Ethernet infrastructure. All the benefits of SAN,
including increased storage utilization, centralized backups, easier addition of incremental storage
capacity, management simplification, and reduced overall total cost of ownership (TCO), can be
extended to a new range of applications. Because the Cisco Multiprotocol Services Module is an
integral component of the Cisco MDS 9000 Family, Ethernet attached servers will enjoy the same
SAN scalability, availability, manageability, and intelligent services as those servers connected
using Fibre Channel, while maintaining the cost and ease-of-use benefits of Ethernet and IP.
Comprehensive
Solution for Robust
Network Security
Addressing the need for airtight security in storage networks, the Cisco MDS 9000 Multiprotocol
Services Module offers an extensive security framework to protect highly sensitive data crossing
today's enterprise networks. The Cisco Multiprotocol Services Module 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. Finally, for both FCIP and iSCSI
deployments, the comprehensive IPsec protocol suite delivers secure authentication, data
integrity, and hardware-based encryption.

multiprotocol fabric environments. Also provides integration with HP OV-SAM and Cisco Resource
Manager Essentials (RME).
Interoperability
Offers compatibility with a broad range of HP servers and operating systems, as well as disk and
tape storage devices; see current compatibility matrix.
Serviceability
Hot-swappable switching modules provides shorter mean time to repair.
Advanced Traffic
The following advanced traffic management capabilities integrated into every Cisco MDS 9000
Management for High- Family Multiprotocol Services Module simplify deployment and optimization of large-scale fabrics.
Performance, Resilient
Virtual Output Queuing ensures line rate performance on each port, independent of traffic
Fabrics
pattern, by eliminating head-of-line blocking.
255 buffer-to-buffer credits are assigned to each port for optimal bandwidth utilization
across distance. When extended distances are required, up to 3500 credits can be
allocated to a single port within a group of four Fibre Channel ports.
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's buffer-to-buffer credit mechanism to
provide enhanced traffic management.
