Brocade 5100 Switch
  A Flexible, Easy-to-Use Switch for a Variety of SAN Environments
Brocade 5100 Switch
The Brocade 5100 Switch is designed for rapidly growing storage environments combining 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel technology in configurations of 24, 32, or 40 ports in an efficient 1U form factor. Designed for a broad range of SAN architectures, the Brocade 5100 consumes less than 2.5 watts of power per port for exceptional power and cooling efficiency. It also features consolidated power and fan assemblies to improve environmental performance and reduce overall ownership costs.
  • Delivers full 8 Gb/s 1:1 performance for up to 40 ports in an energy-efficient, optimized 1U form factor
  • Offers best-in-class port density and scalability for midrange enterprise SAN switches along with redundant, hot-pluggable components and non-disruptive software upgrades
  • 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
  • Features Ports on Demand capabilities for fast, easy, and cost-effective scalability from 24 to 40 ports in 8-port increments
  • Provides Adaptive Networking services, such as Quality of Service (QoS), to help optimize application performance in consolidated, virtual environments
  • Supports Fibre Channel Integrated Routing for selective device sharing while maintaining remote fabric isolation for scalability and fault isolation
  • Utilizes the Brocade EZSwitchSetup wizard to simplify installation and management, and is Microsoft Simple SAN-compatible
