To meet today's growing variety of business challenges, modern data center network solutions must provide a broad set of capabilities—including higher levels of performance, reliability, security, and Quality of Service (QoS)—as well as low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

The Brocade TurboIron 24X Switch is a compact, high-performance, high-availability, and high-density 10 GbE solution that meets mission-critical data center and HPC requirements. It can support 1 GbE servers until they are upgraded to 10 GbE-capable Network Interface Cards (NICs), simplifying migration to 10 GbE server farms. In addition, the TurboIron 24X can provide 10 GbE aggregation behind 1 GbE access switches.

Additional highlights include:

  • Highly efficient power and cooling with front-to-back airflow, automatic fan speed adjustment, and use of SFP+ and direct attached SFP+ copper (Twinax)
  • High availability with redundant, load-sharing, hot-swappable, auto-sensing/switching power supplies and triple-fan assembly
  • End-to-end QoS with hardware-based marking, queuing, and congestion management
  • Embedded per-port sFlow capabilities to support scalable hardware-based traffic monitoring
  • Wire-speed performance with an ultra-low-latency, cut-through, non-blocking architecture ideal for HPC, iSCSI storage, real-time application environments
  • Protected by the Brocade Assurance Limited Lifetime Warranty for as long as the original purchaser continues to own and use the product

New high-performance 10 GbE ports can be used to connect both storage and servers into the existing iSCSI network. Existing servers with 1 GbE connections can access the newly deployed 10 GbE storage; and new servers with 10 GbE… connections can access excising 1 GbE storage. This allows you to utilize 10 GbE iSCSI storage for higher-performance server access to storage or to support more 1 GbE servers per storage array.


The Brocade TurboIron 24X uses state-of-the-art ASIC design, front-to-back air flow, automatic fan-speed control, and power-efficient optics to ensure the most efficient use of power and cooling.
