The Cisco MDS 9500 Series Supervisor-2A Module delivers advanced switching technology with proven Cisco NX-OS Software to power a new generation of scalable and intelligent multilayer switching solutions for storage area networks (SANs). Designed to integrate multiprotocol switching and routing, intelligent SAN services, and storage applications onto highly scalable SAN switching platforms, the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Supervisor-2A Module enables intelligent, resilient, scalable, and secure high-performance multilayer SAN switching solutions. In addition to providing the same capabilities as the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Supervisor-2 Module, the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Supervisor-2A Module supports deployment of Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) in the Cisco MDS 9500 Multilayer Director chassis. The Cisco MDS 9000 Family lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO) for storage networking by combining a robust and flexible hardware architecture, multiple layers of network and storage intelligence, and compatibility with all Cisco MDS 9000 Family switching modules. This powerful combination helps organizations build highly available, scalable storage networks with comprehensive security and unified management.
