Cisco MDS 9222i Multiservice Modular Switch
Get Cost-Effective, Intelligent Services

The Cisco MDS 9222i Multiservice Modular Switch delivers state-of-the-art multiprotocol and distributed fabric services, along with advanced capabilities. This high-density Fibre Channel (FC) switch scales up to 66 FC ports, and offers:

  • High-performance SAN extension for remote replication and disaster recovery solutions
  • Intelligent fabric services, such as storage media encryption (SME) and data mobility manager (DMM)
  • Cost-effective multiprotocol connectivity for both open systems and mainframes
  • Integrated hardware-based virtual fabric isolation, with standard virtual SANs (VSANs) and optional FC routing with inter-VSAN routing
  • Remote SAN extension, with high-performance FC over IP (FCIP), compression, and I/O Accelerator

The Cisco MDS 9222i features a compact 3-rack-unit (3RU) form factor, expansion slot capability, comprehensive network security framework modularity, and IPv6 readiness. It is an ideal solution for departmental and remote branch-office SANs requiring director-class, intelligent services solutions at a lower cost.

Product Highlights
  • Long distance over FC with extended buffer-to-buffer credits (with the Enterprise package)
  • Multiprotocol and mainframe support (FC, FCIP, Small Computer System Interface over IP [iSCSI], and IBM Fibre Connection [FICON])
  • Capability to migrate block data without disruptions across heterogeneous storage volumes over long distances with DMM
  • SME for secure encryption of data stored on heterogeneous tapes, virtual tape libraries, and disk arrays
  • Multiple high-performance intelligent applications with the 16-port storage services node with four engines
