Brocade 300 SAN Switch

(877) 786-2533

The Brocade 300 is the perfect switch for entry level SANs. It is capable of delivering anywhere up to 24 ports with 8 GB/s of performance. It is very energy efficient due to it’s optimized 1U form factor. It can support the most demanding servers and virtual servers without skipping a beat.

It comes with plenty of easy to use tools such as Brocade EZswitchSetup wizard, and its configuration is very simplified. Due to it’s Ports on Demand capability, it enables you to pay as you grow. It comes configured with 8 to 16 or 24 ports. Theses ports can be activated in 8 port increments.

The Brocade 300 is 6th generation technology from the Brocade family. This switch can combine auto sensing 1,2,4 and 8 GB/s throughput, in order to exponentially enhance operation.

The amazing design can give you all of these great capabilities, while consuming less than 2.5 watts of power per port. This is some remarkable power and cooling efficiency.

As a direct result of the Brocade 300’s efficiency, it allows organizations to have powerful capabilities and connectivity, while keeping the costs low.
