The Brocade 300 is an 8 Gbps Fibre Channel switch providing affordable entry-level solution for small SANs or the edge of larger SANs. It enables small to medium-sized enterprises to simplify their IT infrastructures, improve system performance, maximize the value of virtual server deployments, and reduce overall storage costs. It combines auto-sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gbps Fibre Channel throughput with features that greatly enhance fabric operation. The Brocade 300 provides these capabilities while consuming less than 2.5 watts of power per port for exceptional power and cooling efficiency. It also consists of a non-blocking architecture with as many as 24 ports concurrently active at 8 Gbps (full duplex) with no over-subscription-providing an overall bandwidth of 192 Gbps. In addition, enhanced Brocade ISL Trunking enables a single logical high-speed trunk capable of up to 64 Gbps of throughput.
