The Brocade 6510 Switch meets the demands of hyper-scale, private cloud storage environments by delivering market-leading 16 Gbps Fibre Channel technology and capabilities that support highly virtualized environments. Designed to enable maximum flexibility and reliability, the Brocade 6510 is configurable in 24, 36, or 48 ports and supports 2, 4, 8, 10, or 16 Gbps speeds in an efficiently designed 1U package.

Flexible, Easy-to-Use Entry-Level SAN Switch for Private Cloud Storage

To keep pace with growing business demands, data centers are transitioning to highly virtualized, private cloud storage environments. This approach enables organizations to consolidate and simplify their IT resources, resulting in increased business agility and lower capital and operating expenses. But virtualization is not without its challenges. Data centers must keep up with the explosive data growth and dynamic changes driven by virtualized workloads. Selecting the right network is key to realizing the full benefits of these cloud-based architectures.

The Brocade 6510 Switch meets the demands of hyper-scale, private cloud storage environments by delivering market-leading 16 Gbps Fibre Channel technology and capabilities that support highly virtualized environments. Designed to enable maximum flexibility and reliability, the Brocade 6510 is configurable in 24, 36, or 48 ports and supports 2, 4, 8, 10, or 16 Gbps speeds in an efficiently designed 1U package.

A simplified deployment process and a point-and-click user interface make the Brocade 6510 both powerful and easy to use. The Brocade 6510 offers low-cost access to industry-leading Storage Area Network (SAN) technology while providing "pay-as-you-grow" scalability to meet the needs of an evolving storage environment.

Highlights include:

  • Delivers 16 Gbps performance with up to 48 ports in an energy-efficient, 1U form factor, providing maximum flexibility for diverse deployment and cooling strategies
  • Features Ports on Demand (PoD) capabilities for fast, easy, and cost-effective scaling from 24 to 48 ports in 12-port increments
  • Provides a flexible, simple, and easy-to-use SAN solution with industry-leading technology
  • Utilizes the Brocade EZSwitchSetup wizard for simple and easy deployment, and is Microsoft Windows 7 compatible
  • Supports highly virtualized, private cloud storage with multi-tenancy and non-stop operations
  • Offers best-in-class port density and scalability for midrange enterprise SAN switches, along with redundant, hot-pluggable components and non-disruptive software upgrades
  • Yields exceptional price/performance value, exceeding comparable Ethernet storage-based alternatives

Fibre Channel ports:

  • Switch mode (default): 24-, 36-, and 48-port configurations (12-port increments through Ports on Demand [PoD] licenses); universal (E, F, M, D, EX) ports
  • Brocade Access Gateway default port mapping: 40 F_Ports, 8 N_Ports

Scalability:

  • Full fabric architecture with a maximum of 239 switches

Certified maximum:

  • 6000 active nodes; 56 switches, 19 hops in Brocade Fabric OS® fabrics; 31 switches, three hops in Brocade M-EOS fabrics; larger fabrics certified as required

Performance:

  • Auto-sensing of 2, 4, 8, and 16 Gbps port speeds; 10 Gbps and optionally programmable to fixed port speed.

ISL trunking:

  • Frame-based trunking with up to eight 16 Gbps ports per ISL trunk; up to 128 Gbps per ISL trunk. Exchange-based load balancing across ISLs with DPS included in Brocade Fabric OS. There is no limit to how many trunk groups can be configured in the switch.

Aggregate bandwidth:

  • 768 Gbps end-to-end full duplex

Maximum fabric latency:

  • Latency for locally switched ports is 700 ns; encryption/compression is 5.5 µsec per node;
  • Forward Error Correction (FEC) adds 400 ns between E_Ports (enabled by default).

Maximum frame size:

  • 2112 byte payload

Frame buffers:

  • 8192 dynamically allocated

Classes of service:

  • Class 2, Class 3, Class F (inter-switch frames)

Port types:

  • D_Port (Diagnostic Port), E_Port, EX_Port, F_Port, M_Port (Mirror Port); self-discovery based on switch type (U_Port); optional port type control
  • Brocade Access Gateway mode: F_Port and NPIV-enabled N_Port
