The Cisco MDS 9396S 16G Multilayer Fabric Switch is the next generation of the high performance, high density and highly reliable Cisco MDS Series Fabric switches. It combines high performance with exceptional flexibility and cost effectiveness. This powerful, compact, 2-rack-unit (2RU) switch scales from 48 to 96 line-rate 16-Gbps Fiber Channel ports.
High performance and flexibility at lower cost:
The Cisco MDS 9396S switch is a high-end fabric switch. It offers more buffer-to-buffer credits than the previous generation fabric switches and also supports a much greater number of VSANs, making it an excellent choice for standalone small and midsize business (SMB) Fiber Channel networks.
Simplified storage management with sophisticated diagnostics:
The Cisco MDS 9396S offers built-in storage network management and SAN plug-and-play capabilities. All features are available through a command-line interface (CLI) or Cisco Prime DCNM for SAN Essentials Edition, a centralized management tool. Cisco DCNM task-based wizards simplify management of single or multiple switches and fabrics. For virtual infrastructure, it manages the entire path: from the virtual machine and switch to the physical storage.
Intelligent network services and advanced traffic management:
The Cisco MDS 9396S uses virtual SAN (VSAN) technology for hardware-enforced, isolated environments within a physical fabric. It offers access control lists (ACLs) for hardware-based, intelligent frame processing. Advanced traffic management features, such as fabricwide quality of service (QoS) and Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR), are included in the optional Cisco MDS 9000 Family Enterprise Package. QoS prioritizes application data traffic for better and more predictable network service. Zone-based QoS simplifies configuration and administration by using the familiar zoning concept. IVR facilitates resource sharing across VSANs without compromising scalability, reliability, availability, or network security.
Comprehensive network security framework:
An extensive set of innovative and powerful security features and functions is available with the optional Cisco MDS 9000 Family Enterprise Package. It offers fabricwide, per-VSAN role-based authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) services using RADIUS, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), Microsoft Active Directory (AD), and TACACS+. It also deploys VSAN fabric isolation, intelligent port-level packet inspection, Fiber Channel Security Protocol (FC-SP) host-to-switch and switch-to-switch authentication, Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), Secure Shell Version 2 (SSHv2), and Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3) implementing Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Other security features include control-plane security, hardware-enforced zoning and management access.
