Vixel's 9000 Series 2Gb/s Fabric Switches combine best of class performance with a rich feature set. Full compliance with industry interoperability standards and certification under the SANmark Qualification Program mean that Vixel's 9000 Series are easy to implement in multivendor environments.
Vixel's 2 Gb/s 9000 Series switches offer users the highest data throughput rates, with full duplex speeds of up to 400 MB/s at each port. The 9000 Series switches support up to 32 switches and 7 hops in multi-layer environments, offering the increased scalability needed for attaining new density levels in large switch meshes. Leveraging the inherent advantages of the architecture of its 7000 series switches, Vixel's line of 2 Gb/s fabric switches are ideal for large switch meshes, cascading switch environments and joining islands of SANs.
