Solving Congestion Problems in Storage Area Networks

This phenomenal growth puts tremendous pressure on Storage Area Networks (SANs), which must be able to handle the burgeoning traffic loads between the compute and storage layers. To maintain peak efficiency, storage administrators need to be able to quickly detect and resolve slow drain and other common SAN congestion problems. If not addressed in a timely fashion, these can have a cascading effect, even degrading the performance of totally unrelated applications.

Learn how to build your own self-healing fabric.   >> REGISTER NOW : Webinar on Feb 25th 8:00 PST.

This live 60-minute webcast reveals the common causes of slow drain and other typical SAN congestion issues in Fibre Channel (FC) and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) deployments. You will learn how to efficiently detect, stop, and even prevent them from happening.

WATCH VIDEO: Slow Drain is the highest point of concern for storage administrators. Still, it is one of the least understood problems. Watch the videos to understand the basic concept and features provided by Cisco MDS switches for detection, troubleshooting and automatic recovery. Deploy these features today to have your own self-healing fabric
