A scalable, flexible, SAN extension platform

Build a high-performance SAN extension infrastructure and meet disaster recovery and data protection needs. Benefit from cost-effective IP WAN transport that extends storage applications over distance.

Recover from disaster, protect data faster

With advanced protection and storage network optimization, the Brocade 7800 helps replication and backup applications transmit more data faster over FCIP links. That protects your high-priority traffic and optimizes available WAN bandwidth.

Evolve your network for dynamic data growth

The Brocade 7800 helps you manage user demand and the requirements of virtualized data centers. Fibre Channel and FCIP switch port density, bandwidth optimization, and fast throughput address ever-changing I/O and workloads requirements.

Manage more easily, avoid problems

Maximize uptime and simplify management. Gain visibility—and insight—into what’s happening across your SAN fabric. The Brocade 7800 Extension Switch with Fabric Vision technology helps administrators avoid glitches, reduce costs, and keep applications running at peak efficiency.

Leverage Brocade’s integrated architecture

Using the same operating system that supports the entire Brocade SAN fabric, the Brocade 7800 Extension Switch easily accesses advanced features. Equally, you can handle a wide range of tasks with familiar management tools like Brocade Network Advisor.
