Simple and Elegant Scalability with Industry Leading Port Density

The Lenovo ThinkSystem DB630S provides “pay-as-you-grow” scalability which can scale from 48 to 128 ports, all in an efficient 2U package.

The compact design enables data centers to scale efficiently and deliver more connectivity with fewer switches. In addition, each Q-Flex port can support 128 Gbps per port for ISL trunking up to 8 ports between a pair of switches to form a single logical ISL.

To support higher data volumes over long distance, the DB630S delivers in-flight encryption and data compression to optimize bandwidth and minimize the risk of unauthorized access. Moreover, internal fault-tolerant and enterprise class RAS features help minimize downtime to support mission-critical environments.

Maximize Performance

The DB630S also delivers Gen 6 Fibre Channel performance to support growing and dynamic workloads. It achieves this level of performance through a combination of market leading low latency and up to 566 million frames switched per second—shattering application performance barriers with up to 200 million IOPS.

At the same time, port-to-port latency is minimized to less than 780 ns (including FEC) through the use of cut-through switching providing elegant scalability and powerful performance to stay ahead of the demands of flash storage workloads.

Increase Productivity

IT organizations can significantly improve their efficiency, agility and dramatically decrease the risk of operational mistakes by simply automating repetitive tasks. By introducing REST APIs directly into the switch and management products, Brocade offers a broad range of choices to enable any SAN management solution.

IT organizations that couple Brocade’s robust data collecting capabilities with automation and orchestration tools (such as Ansible) gain the ability to automate configuration tasks and the visibility to monitor and detect any performance or health changes.

Enhanced Operational Stability

The DB630S with Brocade Fabric Vision® technology delivers a breakthrough solution that helps simplify monitoring, increase operational stability, and dramatically reduce costs. It also includes IO Insight and VM Insight, which provides administrators with deeper visibility to quickly identify problems and accelerate root cause analysis for faster time to resolution.

The DB630S also optimizes the performance of NVMe over Fibre Channel by leveraging integrated, non-intrusive, real-time network monitoring and alerts. This provides administrators with key insights for maintaining optimal network health and performance.
