Highlights

Brocade 300 — 24-Port, 8-Gbit/sec Fibre Channel switches for entry and midrange Enterprise SANs

Fast, Reliable 8-Gbit/sec Performance

• Non-blocking and non-oversubscribed platform with a total bandwidth of 408 Gbit/sec in 1U

• Designed to increase network performance with enhanced Brocade Inter-Switch Link (ISL) Trunking, which
   allows up to eight ports (at 2-, 4-, or 8-Gbit/sec speeds) between a pair of switches to be combined to form a
   single, logical ISL with a speed up to 64 Gbit/sec

• Utilizes extended distance support to enable native Fibre Channel extension greater than 590 km

Affordable Scalability

• Combines up to 24 ports of industry-leading 8-Gbit/sec technology with Ports on Demand scaling from 8 to
   16 to 24 ports, allowing “pay-as-you-grow” scalability

• Helps protect existing investments by providing 8-Gbit/sec technology with auto-sensing capabilities to also
   recognize 1-, 2- and 4-Gbit/sec devices

• Designed to future-proof investments by allowing organizations to use 4-Gbit/sec Small Form-Factor
   Pluggables (SFPs) today and upgrade to 8-Gbit/sec SFPs when required 

Simple Deployment and Management

• Utilizes the Brocade EZSwitchSetup wizard, which can make SAN configuration a simple 3-step point-and-click task

• Includes a USB port that can increase serviceability and error logging by facilitating firmware upgrades and downloads of system log files

• Features an easy-to-use, non-blocking and non-oversubscribed platform that is designed to eliminate time wasted on managing ports and cables

Excellent Value for a Variety of SAN Environments

• Offers dual functionality as a full fabric FC SAN switch or as a Brocade Access Gateway, providing
   seamless connectivity into any vendor SAN environment

• Designed to provide a greater than 40 percent power efficiency improvement (Watts/Gbit) over the previous
   generation of Brocade switches — further reducing power consumption and the overall cooling burden in a
   data center

Assessments

Network assessments offer a holistic view of your multivendor environment and a reference point for how your infrastructure is performing. Our experts can pinpoint and expose issues in your network using specialized software and diagnostic tools. These unbiased and insightful analytics are aggregated into comprehensive reports that can include recommendations on how to improve performance, optimize devices and remediate problems.
Assessment
Network Topology Assessment

Is your network complex and coiled? Dell can perform a detailed audit and inventory of all multivendor devices in the network to provide visibility and identify configuration issues.

Network Optimization Assessment

Many networks are a multivendor patchwork of devices not running at their optimal state. We can analyze devices from all leading vendors and make recommendations to optimize the entire multivendor design, fine-tune devices and maximize performance of the holistic environment.

Application Performance Assessment

When business applications and databases begin to show signs of latency or completely shut down, we can conduct a comprehensive analysis to uncover performance issues, isolate problems and accelerate troubleshooting of the enterprise infrastructure and software applications.

VoIP Assessment

Moving to a Voice-over-IP (VoIP) solution requires the right network infrastructure to support real-time voice protocols. Simulated load testing, analysis and review can identify the next steps to building a VoIP platform or fixing issues of an existing one.

Network Security Assessment

Safeguard your network from constant attack. Let our experts examine and uncover potential vulnerabilities and provide a comprehensive security design assessment.
