• Physical servers are
consolidated, but a higher
percentage of virtual servers
connect to the shared storage
network
• Applications will move across
virtual servers and the
infrastructure, no longer attached
to physical ports —the data
center fabric must support this
• More connected elements drive
new network and
infrastructure requirements
• VM-aware end-to-end
management (server-to-storage)
becomes critically important

Solution - N-Port ID Virtualisation (NPIV)
NPIV is a Fibre Channel facility allowing multiple IDs to share a single
physical N_Port. This allows multiple Fibre Channel initiators to occupy a
single physical port.
ANSI T11
standard,
developed for the
IBM mainframe.
This virtual HBA,
or VPORT,
appears to the
FC fabric as a
physical HBA.

Issue 2: Solve the Bandwidth Issue
Any congestion on the link/fabric path affects all traffic flow from
the HBA through the fabric
Problem is worse in virtual server environments

Solution – QoS at the Host & Fabric Levels
Each VM can be linked to NPIV ports
Each VPORT can be linked to a QoS priority level
– High, Medium (default) or Low
Each priority level is linked to the fabric QoS priority levels for the complete
solution
– This will prioritize and isolate data flow from host through the fabric
QoS Priorities – Host Level

Optimizing Server Virtualization
Mobility, a key attribute in the virtualized data center
Brocade enables transparent VM
mobility across the SAN
• Security and QoS attributes are
attached to the “Vport” and are
carried over when the VM is
moved across physical servers
HBA
HBA
DCX
• Each VM gets its own virtual
connection to its storage LUNs
through a dedicated “Vport”
• Brocade is a key enabler of VM
mobility with end to end NPiV
management from host to
storage.
