networking
The SN6000C switch comes standard with advanced features in a compact, extremely costeffective design that simplifies deployment and administration of small and medium-scale storagearea networks (SANs) and as an edge switch in a larger enterprise.
N-Port ID Virtualization NPIV):
N-Port ID Virtualization (NPIV), a standard Fibre Channel protocol feature, individual virtual
machines assume a full identity on the SAN so that Fibre Channel services such as zoning,
Quality of Service (QoS), performance monitoring, and security can be provided to each virtual
machine.
VSANs:
VSAN, an industry standard for fabric virtualization capabilities, enables more efficient storage
network use by creating hardware-based isolated environments within a single physical SAN fabric
or switch. Up to 32 VSANs are supported per switch. Each VSAN can be zoned as a typical SAN
and maintains its own fabric services and management domains 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.
PortChannels:
PortChannels allow users to aggregate up to 16 physical ISLs into a single logical bundle,
providing optimized bandwidth use across all links. The bundle can consist of any port from the
switch, helping ensure that the bundle remains active even in the event of a port failure.
N-Port Virtualization (NPV):
The number of Fibre Channel domain IDs in a Fibre Channel SAN environment is limited. N-Port
Virtualization (NPV) enables organization to scale there SANs without reaching these Fibre
Channel domain ID limits because and switch with NPV does not use a Fibre Channel domain ID.
NPV aggregates locally connected hosts into one or more uplinks to core switches in a pass
through manner without using a Fibre Channel domain ID.
FlexAttach:
The C-series FlexAttach feature gives SN6000C switch customers the flexibility to add, move, or
replace servers easily without the need to reconfigure SAN switches or storage arrays. It provides
this flexibility by virtualizing the SAN identity of a server, which enables a server to retain its SAN

Switch
Product Highlights
identity even if the server is moved or replaced.
Quality of Service (QoS):
The Quality of Service (QoS) feature allows traffic to be classified into four distinct levels for
service differentiation. QoS can be applied to help ensure that Fibre Channel data traffic for
latency-sensitive applications receives higher priority over throughput-intensive applications such
as data warehousing.
F-port trunking and channeling:
The F-port trunking feature enables multiple VSANs to be transported on the uplink from a
SN6000C switch operating in NPV mode to the core switch. This feature will allow the
consolidation of uplinks ports necessary for extending VSAN connectivity to the NP device.
The F-port channeling feature enables up to 16 physical uplinks between a SN6000C switch
operating in NPV mode and the core switch to be bundled into a PortChannel.
IVR (MDS 9000 NX-OS Software Release 5.1(0) or later:
VSANs and Inter-VSAN routing (IVR) enable deployment of large-scale multisite and
heterogeneous SAN topologies. Integrated VSANs in port-level hardware allow any port in a
system or in a fabric to be partitioned into any VSAN. Integrated IVR provides line-rate routing
between any of the ports in a system or in a fabric without the need for external routing
appliances.
High Availability
The SN6000C switch is designed for environments in which downtime is unacceptable. It offers:
Non Disruptive software upgrades
Process monitoring and stateful process restart
Per-VSAN fabric services
Redundant, hot-swappable power supply and redundant, hot-swappable power supply and
fan trays
Hot-swappable C-series SFP and SFP+ optics
PortChannels for Inter-Switch Link (ISL) resiliency
