Fabric os services

Name Services

FSPF Routing

Fabric OS Services

Distributed Name Server

  • Standards-based network address assignment

  • Distributed across the fabric

  • Dynamic scalability

  • Automatic legacy device support

Auto-discovery – zero administration and

lower total cost of ownership

  • Scalability and Cascading

  • Any port to any port

  • Dynamic recovery

  • Dynamically configured routes

  • Self-discovery

Highly redundant network with no single points of failure


Advanced fabric services advanced zoning
Advanced Fabric Services:Advanced Zoning

  • WWN Hardware Zoning

    • Simple administration

    • Secure access control

    • Provides security and flexibility (best of hard and soft zoning)


Advanced fabric services inter switch link trunking

8 Gbit/sec trunk

Advanced Fabric Services:Inter-Switch Link Trunking

  • ISL Trunking

    • 8 Gbit/sec logical links

  • Simplifies fabric administration and design

  • Maximizes bandwidth utilization

  • Increases high availability

  • Ensures predictable performance under load

  • Aggregates edge traffic


Advanced fabric services frame filtering intelligent traffic mgmt

Foundation technology for intelligent SAN traffic mgmt

Configurable platform for future services

Filter on several different fields in a frame

Multiple simultaneous filters per frame

No performance impact

Advanced fabric services lun zoning
Advanced Fabric Services:LUN Zoning

  • LUN Zoning

    • More granular than WWN

    • More efficient storage port use

    • Centralized LUN access control

    • Capable of spanning different storage types

Advanced Fabric Services:Performance Analysis

  • Performance analysis

  • End-to-end statistics

  • GUI graph view

  • API-accessible

  • Range of information available

San disk storage why use it
SAN Disk StorageWhy use it?

  • Improved overall availability

  • Improve/Protect critical data

  • Increased disk utilization

  • Reduce data center rack/floor space

  • Reduce management costs as a % of storage costs

  • Non-disruptive scalability

  • Reduce/eliminate backup windows


San disk storage hardware characteristics
SAN Disk StorageHardware Characteristics

  • Modular, building-block design for flexible configurations (performance/capacity ratio)

  • User Configurable

  • High speed and capacity disk drives to meet specific application requirements

  • global, dynamic hot spares

  • Intermixed RAID levels

  • Cache

  • Host connectivity

  • Redundant, hot-swappable components

  • No SPOF

  • Online microcode upgrade, LUN expansion, LUN mapping


San disk storage fully redundant solution
SAN Disk StorageFully redundant solution

  • Critical components are hot swappable:

    • Controllers

    • Power supplies

    • Hard disk modules

    • Battery

    • Fan module

    • Fiber connection module

    • Cache

  • Non disruptive upgrade/maintenance:

    • Microcode upgrades

    • Parts replacement

    • RAID group creation

    • LUN addition

    • Unit addition


San disk storage software
SAN Disk StorageSoftware

  • Performance

    • Cache

    • Path failover/load balancing software support

    • Optimization software

  • Data Protection/Business Continuance

    • LUN Security software

    • Local volume mirroring software

    • Remote copying software

  • Management

    • Easy-to-use GUI or CLI Software

    • “Call Home” diagnostic services

    • SNMP, out of band management options for popular network and SAN management applications
