Build a SAN extension that grows with you

Build a SAN extension from scratch or expand to meet evolving requirements. Install up to four Brocade FX 8-24 Extension Blades in a Brocade DCX 8510 Backbone for scalable Fibre Channel and FCIP bandwidth—ideal for larger enterprise data centers and multi-site environments.

Recover from disaster, transmit data faster

The Brocade FX 8-24 Extension Blade features advanced protection and storage network optimization—so replication and backup applications transmit more data over FCIP links, faster. That means you protect time-sensitive asynchronous or high-priority traffic and optimize available WAN bandwidth.

Eliminate problems with simplified management

Maximize network availability and monitor your SAN fabric with ease. Reduce costs, too. The Brocade FX 8-24 Extension Blade with Fabric Vision technology helps administrators avoid problems before they impact performance and SLAs.

Simplified SAN extension

  • Provide a broad range of advanced extension, FICON, and SAN fabric services
  • Scale bandwidth to meet the demands of larger data centers and multiple sites
  • Deliver aggregate bandwidth of up to 96 Gbps (Fibre Channel) and up to 20 Gbps (FCIP)

Easier recovery and protection

  • Accelerate FastWrite and IBM z/OS Global Mirror to maximize replication performance
  • Reduce backup and recovery times over distance with Tape Pipelining
  • Provide FCIP tunnel redundancy for lossless path failover and guaranteed in-order delivery
  • Ensure six-nines availability with hot-pluggable hardware and non-disruptive software upgrades

Simplified management, robust network analytics

  • Provide complete visibility into fabric flows with Flow Monitor
  • Simplify threshold configuration and monitoring with the Monitoring and Alerting Policy Suite (MAPS)
  • Alert administrators to SAN fabric congestion and latency with Fabric Performance Impact (FPI) Monitoring
  • Customize SAN health and performance views with Brocade Network Advisor
