Brocade 300 Switch
 • Small SAN Affordability with Growth capabilities
 
Brocade 300 Switch
The Brocade 300 is an 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel switch that provides an affordable entry-level solution for small SANs or the edge of larger SANs. It enables small to medium-sized enterprises to simplify their IT infrastructures, improve system performance, maximize the value of virtual server deployments, and reduce overall storage costs.
 
  • Provides an affordable, flexible foundation for entry-level SANs, and an edge switch for core-to-edge SAN environments
  • Delivers up to 24 ports of 8 Gb/s performance in an energy-efficient, optimized 1U form factor to support the most demanding server and virtual server deployments
  • Simplifies configuration and management with easy-to-use tools such as the Brocade EZSwitchSetup wizard, and is Microsoft Simple SAN-compatible
  • Enables “pay-as-you-grow” scalability from single-switch fabrics to full-fabric enterprise capabilities with Ports On Demand scalability from 8 to 16 or 24 ports in 8-port increments
  • Offers dual functionality as either a full-fabric SAN switch or as an NPIV-enabled Brocade Access Gateway that enhances fabric scalability and simplifies management
  • Protects existing device investments with auto-sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb/s capabilities and native operation with Brocade and Brocade M-Series fabrics
  • Future-proofs investments by enabling organizations to use 4 Gb/s SFPs today and upgrade to 8 Gb/s SFPs when required

      HIGHLY AFFORDABLE SAN TECHNOLOGY
    The Brocade 300 provides exceptional performance and functionality at an entry-level cost. It combines auto-sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel throughput with features that greatly enhance fabric operation.

    The Brocade 300 provides these capabilities while consuming less than 2.5 watts of power per port for exceptional power and cooling efficiency.
    The Brocade 300 features a non-blocking architecture with as many as 24 ports concurrently active at 8 Gb/s (full duplex) with no over-subscription (providing an aggregate bandwidth of 408 Gb/s). In addition, enhanced Brocade ISL Trunking enables a single logical high-speed trunk capable of up to 68 Gb/s of throughput.


      SIMPLIFIED MANAGEMENT
    Brocade 300 setup and configuration is simplified with the Brocade EZSwitchSetup wizard, which makes switch configuration, deployment, and management an easy 3-step point-and-click process. To manage Brocade switches, organizations can use a command line interface, the Brocade Web Tools utility, EZSwitchSetup, Switch Manager, or SAN management tools such. The Brocade 300, which is Microsoft Simple SAN-compatible, also supports a USB port that increases serviceability and error logging by facilitating firmware upgrades and downloads of system log files.

      FAST AND EASY SCALABILITY
    The Brocade 300 is easy to deploy, manage, and integrate into both new and existing IT environments. With capabilities such as Ports On Demand scalability from 8 to 16 or 24 ports, the Brocade 300 enables organizations to grow their storage networks when necessary, in a non-disruptive manner. In addition, organizations can initially deploy 4 Gb/s SFPs and upgrade to 8 Gb/s SFP+ when desired.
