Key features

The ThinkSystem DB620S FC SAN Switch offers the following features and benefits:
Provides high scalability in an ultra-dense, 1U switch with 48 SFP+ ports and 4 QSFP+ ports (each
QSFP+ port has 4x 32 Gb FC links for 128 Gb FC connectivity between the DB620S FC SAN
switches, or it can be broken out to four links to 4/8/16/32 Gbps SWL optics in a server HBA,
storage device, or another FC switch, for a total of up to 64 connections) to support high-density
server virtualization, cloud architectures, and flash-based storage environments.
Increases performance for demanding workloads with support for 128 Gbps (4x 32 Gbps) and
32 Gbps FC links.
Simplifies configuration and management with easy-to-use EZSwitch Setup.
Enables "pay-as-you-grow" scalability from single-switch fabric to full-fabric enterprise capabilities
with Ports On Demand scalability.
Optimizes fabric behavior and ensure sufficient bandwidth for mission-critical applications with
advanced traffic management capabilities and adaptive networking.
Provides proactive, non-intrusive, real-time monitoring and alerting of VM health and performance
with VM Insight through integrated network sensors.
Offers dual functionality as either a full-fabric SAN switch or as an NPIV-enabled Access Gateway
(requires 48 SFP+ ports be licensed) that enhances fabric scalability and simplifies management.
Protects existing device investments with auto-sensing 4, 8, 16, and 32 Gbit/sec capabilities and
native operation with Brocade fabrics.
Runs Fabric OS, which delivers distributed intelligence throughout the network and enables a wide
range of value-added features.
Leverages Fabric Vision technology's powerful monitoring, management, and diagnostic tools to
simplify administration, increase uptime, and reduce costs.
Supplies a rich set of standard features at no extra cost, including fabric services, advanced zoning,
adaptive networking, full fabric and access gateway operations, integrated 10 Gb FC, and
diagnostic tools.
Expands fabric capabilities with optional licensed functions, including trunking, advanced
monitoring and alerting, long-distance fabrics, and FC-FC routing.
Compresses in-flight data on up to four ports for more efficient link utilization.
Virtualizes physical FC SAN switches and fabrics into logical entities for better flexibility, utilization,
management, and efficiency.
Allows organizations to seamlessly integrate Gen 6 Fibre Channel networks with the next generation
of flash storage – NVMe over Fibre Channel – by being NVMe-ready, without a disruptive rip and
replace, to achieve faster application response times and harness the performance of solid state
drives for better scalability across virtual data centers with flash storage.
Maximizes resiliency with redundant hot-swap power supplies.
Accelerates troubleshooting with built-in advanced diagnostics tools featuring ClearLink
Diagnostics with D_Ports and select adapters from QLogic and Emulex, which helps ensure optical
and signal integrity for 16 Gb and 32 Gb Fibre Channel optics and cables.
