2 2© Hitachi Data Systems Corporation 2012. All Rights Reserved. BROCADE VDX 6746 SWITCH  State-of-the-art 10 Gigabit Ethernet embedded switch for the Hitachi CB500 blade server platform  Enables Hitachi CB500 to support flexible connectivity options for cloud architectures, including lossless Ethernet fabrics  Provides CB500 customers the choice to enhance their hierarchical network architectures, deploy flatter scale-out fabrics or converge networks when deploying virtualization and cloud IT infrastructures.  Designed to increase scalability and enhance VM mobility, further simplifying management and significantly reducing operational overhead of virtualized blade server environments WHAT IS IT?

3 3© Hitachi Data Systems Corporation 2012. All Rights Reserved. VDX 6746: NEW 10GE DCB SWITCH MODULE  Industry’s 1 st Ethernet Fabric enabled embedded 10Gb DCB switch module ‒ flexible connectivity options for cloud architectures ‒ enhance hierarchical network architectures ‒ deploy flatter scale-out fabrics; or ‒ converge networks  Brocade VDX 6746 supports ‒ 24 x 10GE ports (16 internal, 8 external) ‒ Non-blocking, cut through architecture, wire speed ‒ Dual speed (1GE/10GE) external ports ‒ 1 Gb RJ-45 connectors and 10 Gb twinax copper or optical connectors ‒ Brocade Virtual Cluster Switching (VCS) ‒ DCB and multi hop FCoE ‒ Automatic Migration of Port Profiles (AMPP) ‒ Rich set of Layer 2 features ‒ Hitachi Chassis Management Support Brocade VDX 6746 Brocade VDX 6746

BENEFITS OF VDX 6746  Embedded design dramatically reduces cabling, power and cooling  Industry-leading performance and ultra-low latency  Simplifies network architectures and enables cloud computing by delivering Brocade Virtual Cluster Switching (VCS) technology and enabling Ethernet fabrics ‒ VCS technology deploys scale-out fabrics instead of a hierarchical network to flatten the network design, and manages the entire fabric as a single Logical Chassis to reduce complexity ‒ Compared to classic Ethernet architectures, Ethernet fabrics allow all paths to be active, increasing network performance, utilization, and resiliency  Supports lossless unified storage connectivity, and storage and LAN traffic convergence to reduce connectivity cost  Simplifies virtualized server management by enabling seamless Virtual Machine (VM) mobility  Can be deployed into classic 1Gb and 10Gb architectures, preserving existing network designs and cabling  Enables end-to-end management of CB500

5 5 VIRTUAL CLUSTER SWITCHING (VCS)  Scale-out, multi-path, highly resilient layer 2 Ethernet Fabric  Self-forming and masterless through Distributed Intelligence  Manage fabric as a single Logical Chassis

6 6 VCS Cluster Logical Chassis FCoE storage (Single Hop) iSCSI DCB FCoE storage (Multi hop) FC storage * CB500 Server Blade VDX 6746 Embedded Switch Creation of a VCS fabric between 2 embedded switches is free VDX 6720 Top of Rack Switch NAS vLAG VCS license allows creation of a Ethernet Fabric that scales past two switches FCoE license enables single and multi hop FCoE VCS AND FCOE * Future use case

7 7 VIRTUAL MACHINE MOBILITY CHALLENGES TODAY Limited sphere of mobility STP limits flexibility to a minimized, defined tree of switches L3 limits mobility to a single rack VM migration can break network/application access Port setting information must be identical at destination Map services (VLANs, QoS, security, etc.) to all physical ports Eases mobility, but undermines network and security best practices Distributed Virtual Switch Addresses configuration needs Consumes server resources and still restricted by physical limits Limited insight into where VMs are running VMs exist anywhere in the cluster L2 STP L3 to Agg. Layer   !!!! Distributed vSwitch ? ? ? ?

8 8 MAC ID VDX 6746 VM MOBILITY WITH VDX 6746 & VCS AUTOMATIC MIGRATION OF PORT PROFILES (AMPP)  Distributed intelligence of VM location throughout VCS fabric  Granular VLAN, ACL, and QoS policies assigned per VM  Zero network re- configuration required when a VM is moved across the VCS fabric

9 9 FC SAN (A) FC SAN (B) LAN NAS/iSCSI/FCoE Top of Rack VDX 6720s Brocade VDX 6746 - 10Gb Ethernet Fabric Switch Module Brocade 5460 – 8Gb FC Switch Module SINGLE LOGICAL CHASSIS OF 12 VDX SWITCHES FLEXIBLE I/O ARCHITECTURE= FC FABRIC + ETHERNET FABRIC + CONVERGED NETWORK
