PowerConnect B-DCX 4S includes a highly robust 8 Gbps network switching platform that combines high performance, scalability, and energy efficiency with long-term investment protection.
Supporting open systems and System z environments, the PowerConnect B-DCX4S is designed to address the data growth and application demands of evolving enterprise data centers; enable server, SAN, and data center consolidation; and reduce infrastructure and administrative costs.
The PowerConnect B-DCX 4S helps organizations reduce energy costs by helping to free up limited power and cooling resources in the data center for more servers and storage arrays.
Built for midsize networks, the 8U PowerConnect B-DCX 4S has four horizontal blade slots to provide up to 192 Fibre Channel ports.
The PowerConnect B-DCX 4S features ultra-high-speed Inter-Chassis Link (ICL) ports to connect up to three modular switches, providing extensive scalability and flexibility at the network core.
A Versatile Layer 2 10 Gb CEE/FCoE Switch for Server I/O Consolidation.
The PowerConnect B-8000is a top-of-rack link layer (Layer 2) CEE/FCoE switch with 24 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports for LAN connections and eight Fibre Channel ports (with up to 8 Gbps speed) for Fibre Channel SAN connections. This reliable, high-performance switch provides advanced Fibre Channel services, supports Ethernet and CEE capabilities, and is managed by Brocade DCFM.
