Many IT departments have consolidated their data centers and SANs, achieving great efficiencies along the way. Large enterprises with consolidated SANs have hundreds or thousands of servers running business applications interconnecting through a common network fabric, making the network fabric an ideal nexus from which to deploy solutions such as SAN extension, acceleration, and encryption of data. The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node provides a high-performance, flexible, unified platform for deploying enterprise-class disaster recovery, business continuance, and intelligent fabric applications.

The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node hosts four independent service engines, which can each be individually and incrementally enabled to scale as business requirements change, or be configured to run separate applications. Based on the single service engine in the Cisco MDS 9000 18/4-Port Multiservice Module, this four-to-one consolidation delivers dramatic hardware savings and frees valuable slots in the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Multilayer Directors chassis.

The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node integrates transparently into the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Multilayer Directors and the Cisco MDS 9222i Multiservice Modular Switch. Each of the four service engines supports 4 Gigabit Ethernet IP storage services ports, for a total of 16 ports of Fiber Channel over IP (FCIP) connectivity. Traffic can be switched between an IP port and any Fiber Channel port on a Cisco MDS 9000 Family switch. The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node supports the full range of services available on other Cisco MDS 9000 Family Fiber Channel switching modules, including virtual SANs (VSANs), security, and traffic management.

The Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node uses Cisco expertise and knowledge of IP networks to deliver outstanding SAN extension performance, reducing latency for disk and tape with FCIP acceleration features, including FCIP write acceleration and FCIP tape write and read acceleration. Hardware-based encryption helps secure sensitive traffic with IP Security (IPsec), and hardware-based compression dramatically enhances performance for both high- and low-speed links, enabling immediate cost savings in expensive WAN infrastructure. Multiple Gigabit Ethernet ports within a single engine or across service engines can be grouped into a PortChannel of up to 16 links for high availability and increased aggregate throughput. PortChannels can also be enabled for FCIP tape read and write acceleration by running the optional Cisco MDS 9000 I/O Accelerator (IOA) Package on a service engine anywhere in the fabric.

Natively integrating support for intelligent fabric applications, the Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port Storage Services Node provides a platform for distributed fabric services such as Cisco Storage Media Encryption (SME), which encrypts data at rest on heterogeneous tape drives and virtual tape libraries (VTLs), and the Cisco MDS 9000 IOA feature, which provides acceleration and compression for synchronous replication applications. These advanced functions are available to any device connected to the fabric, facilitating ease of deployment, scalability, and high availability through clustering.
