Brocade FCOE 10-24 Blade

Simplify network design with a versatile, high-density blade

Currently Viewing:

Designed for mid-sized and large enterprises, the Brocade FCOE10-24 Blade consolidates server I/O to reduce capital and operating expenses. This versatile blade enables both LAN and SAN access over a common server connection via the Data Center Bridging (DCB) and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) standards-based protocols.

Cut costs with unified consolidation: The Brocade FCOE10-24 connects to servers with third-party Converged Network Adaptors (CNAs), consolidating I/O to cut infrastructure costs. And gain complete command-and-control of your SAN with Brocade Network Advisor for network management.

Easily scale your network for delivering must-have performance: Built for data-intensive applications, the Brocade FCOE10-24 features non-blocking architecture and extensive expansion capabilities. Frame-based trunking accelerates server connection throughput up to 40 Gbps for delivering must-have performance.

Unify management across your storage network: Leveraging the same OS and management utilities that support the entire Brocade SAN fabric, the Brocade FCOE 10-24 connects easily to Brocade Fibre Channel SANS and FCoE systems. Configuration, monitoring, and management and upgrades are completely non-disruptive.
