Intelligent network services: Cisco MDS 9222i uses VSAN technology for hardware-enforced, isolated environments within a single physical fabric, access control lists (ACLs) for hardware-based intelligent frame processing, and advanced traffic management features such as fabric-wide quality of service (QoS) to facilitate migration from SAN islands to enterprise-wide storage networks.
High-performance ISLs: Cisco MDS 9222i supports up to 16 Fibre Channel inter-switch links (ISLs) in a single PortChannel. Links can span any port on any module in a chassis for added scalability and resilience. Up to 4095 buffer-to-buffer credits can be assigned to a single Fibre Channel port to extend storage networks over very long distances.
Comprehensive network security framework: The Cisco MDS 9222i supports RADIUS and TACACS+, Fibre Channel Security Protocol (FC-SP), Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol, Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3) implementing AES, VSANs, hardware-enforced zoning, ACLs, and per-VSAN role-based access control (RBAC). Additionally, the Gigabit Ethernet ports offer IP Security (IPsec) authentication, data integrity, and hardware-assisted data encryption for FCIP and iSCSI.
IP Version 6 (IPv6) capable: The Cisco MDS 9222i supports IPv6 as mandated by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), Japan, and China. IPv6 support is provided for FCIP, iSCSI, and management traffic routed in-band and out-of-band.
Sophisticated diagnostics: The Cisco MDS 9222i provides intelligent diagnostics, protocol decoding, and network analysis tools as well as integrated call-home capability for added reliability, faster problem resolution, and reduced service costs.
VSANs Ideal for efficient, secure SAN consolidation, VSANs enable more efficient storage network utilization by creating hardware-based isolated environments with a single physical SAN fabric or switch. Each VSAN can be zoned as a typical SAN and maintains its own fabric services for added scalability and resilience. VSANs allow the cost of SAN infrastructure to be shared among more users, while helping ensure complete segregation of traffic and retaining independent control of configuration on a VSAN-by-VSAN basis. IVR In another step toward deploying efficient, cost-effective, consolidated storage networks, the Cisco MDS 9222i supports IVR, the industrys first routing function for Fibre Channel. IVR allows selective transfer of data between specific initiators and targets on different VSANs while maintaining isolation of control traffic within each VSAN. With IVR, data can transit VSAN boundaries while maintaining control plane isolation, thereby maintaining fabric stability and availability. IVR is one of the feature enhancements provided with the Cisco MDS 9000 Enterprise advanced software package and eliminates the need for external routing appliances, greatly increasing routing scalability while
Extends acceleration service as a fabric service to any port in the fabric regardless of where it is attached Fibre Channel write acceleration (FC-WA) and Fibre Channel tape acceleration (FC-TA) FCIP write acceleration (FCIP-WA) and FCIP tape acceleration (FCIP-TA) Fibre Channel and FCIP compression High availability using PortChannels with acceleration over Fibre Channel and FCIP Unified solution for disk and tape I/O acceleration over metropolitan area networks (MANs) and WANs Speed-independent acceleration that accelerates 1/2/4/8/10-Gbps links and consolidates traffic over 8/10Gigabit ISLs
Cisco SME Cisco SME services offer solutions that enable companies to address Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) 2.0 compliance and other legislative regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) that require companies to store and protect data at rest for a specified number of years while publicly disclosing security breaches.
Page 4 of 19
Cisco has services such as IP Security (IPsec) and the Cisco TrustSec solution to address data security while data is in motion. Cisco SME addresses data security for data at rest. Cisco SME is a fabric-based service that is scalable, nonintrusive and addresses heterogeneous environments.
Cisco SME enables data on tapes and in VTLs to be compressed, encrypted, and authenticated for centralized security management and data management and recovery.
Cisco SME enables encryption of data for disk storage arrays. Cisco SME (tape or disk) is supported in the fixed slot of the Cisco MDS 9222i, and its performance can be scaled by adding a Cisco MDS 9000 18/4-Port MSM in the expansion slot.
For ultra-high throughput, the Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port SSN is recommended because it has four encryption engines.
Cisco SME services employ clustering technology to create a highly available solution. The cryptographic cluster formed enhances reliability and availability, provides automated load balancing and failover capabilities, and simplifies provisioning as a single SAN fabric service rather than as individual switches or modules.
The Cisco Key Management Center (KMC) provides comprehensive key management for Cisco SME, with support for single- and multiple-site deployments. Cisco KMC provides essential features such as key archival, secure export and import and translation for distribution, and key shredding. It can also work in conjunction with the RSA RKM Appliance. For increased operational security, Smart Card readers and media are optionally available to protect master keys, facilitate master key storage, and help prevent unauthorized cryptographic cluster formation and key recovery.
The Cisco SME license can be used to enable encryption of either tapes or storage disk arrays. You should use a separate engine and license for each.
Cisco DMM Cisco DMM is an advanced software package comprising a fabric-based data migration solution that transfers block data nondisruptively across heterogeneous storage volumes and across distances, whether the host is online or offline. This data center-class solution helps mitigate the challenges experienced in migrating data, such as downtime, the need to add data migration software to servers, and the potential for data loss and corruption. By simply enabling the Cisco DMM feature on a Cisco MDS 9222i located anywhere in the SAN, data migration can be configured without host agents, without re-wiring, without effecting performance, and without downtime. Mainframe Support The Cisco MDS 9222i is mainframe-ready, with full support for IBM zSeries FICON and Linux environments provided with the Cisco MDS 9000 Mainframe advanced software package. Qualified by IBM for attachment to all FICONenabled devices in an IBM zSeries operating environment, Cisco MDS 9222i switches support transport of the FICON protocol in both cascaded and non-cascaded fabrics, as well as an intermix of FICON and open systems Fibre Channel Protocol traffic on the same switch. VSANs simplify intermixing of SAN resources among IBM z/OS, mainframe Linux, and open systems environments, enabling increased SAN utilization and simplified SAN management. VSAN-based intermix mode eliminates the uncertainty and instability often associated with zoningbased intermix techniques. VSANs also eliminate the possibility that a misconfiguration or component failure in one VSAN will affect operation in other VSANs. VSAN-based management access controls simplify partitioning of SAN management responsibilities between mainframe and open systems environments, enhancing security. FICON VSANs can be managed using the standard Cisco DCNM for SAN Essentials Edition, the Cisco command-line interface (CLI), or IBM CUP-enabled management tools, including SA/390, Resource Measurement Facility (RMF), and Dynamic Channel Path Management (DCM).

The Cisco MDS 9000 Mainframe package is required for all Cisco MDS 9222i integrated FICON channel extension features. In combination with SAN extension capabilities, it enables FICON tape read and write acceleration. In combination with SAN extension and the Cisco MDS 9000 XRC Acceleration package, it enables acceleration of IBM z/OS Global Mirror (XRC) dynamic updates. Advanced Traffic Management The following advanced traffic-management capabilities are integrated as standard on the Cisco MDS 9222i:
Port security locks down the mapping of an entity to a switch port to help ensure that SAN security is not compromised by connection of unauthorized devices to a switch port.
VSAN-based access control allows customers to define roles in which the scope of the roles is limited to certain VSANs.
Page 6 of 19
FC-SP provides switch-switch and host-switch Diffie-Hellman Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (DH-CHAP) authentication supporting RADIUS and TACACS+ to help ensure that only authorized devices access protected storage networks.
Comprehensive IPsec protocol suite delivers secure authentication, data integrity, and hardware-based encryption for both FCIP and iSCSI deployments.
Digital certificates are issued by a trusted third party and are used as electronic passports to prove the identity of certificate owners.
Fabric binding for open systems helps ensure that the ISLs are enabled only between switches that have been authorized in the fabric binding configuration.
Cisco TrustSec Fibre Channel link encryption helps ensure data integrity and privacy.
Advanced Diagnostics and Troubleshooting Tools Management of large-scale storage networks requires proactive diagnostics, tools to verify connectivity and route latency, and mechanisms for capturing and analyzing traffic. The Cisco MDS 9000 Family integrates the industrys most advanced analysis and diagnostic tools, which are included as standard on the Cisco MDS 9222i. Power-on self-test (POST) and online diagnostics provide proactive health monitoring. The Cisco MDS 9222i implements diagnostic capabilities such as Fibre Channel traceroute to detail the exact path and timing of flows, and Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) to intelligently capture network traffic. After traffic has been captured, it can be analyzed with Cisco Fabric Analyzer, an embedded Fibre Channel analyzer. Comprehensive port-based and flow-based statistics facilitate sophisticated performance analysis and service-level agreement (SLA) accounting. With the Cisco MDS 9000 Family, Cisco delivers a comprehensive toolset for troubleshooting and analysis of storage networks. Ease of Management To meet the needs of all users, the Cisco MDS 9222i provides three principal modes of management: the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI, Cisco DCNM for SAN Essentials and Advanced Editions, and integration with third-party storage management tools.
The Cisco MDS9222i presents a consistent, logical CLI. Adhering to the syntax of the widely known Cisco IOS Software CLI, the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI is easy to learn and delivers broad management capabilities. It is an extremely efficient and direct interface designed to provide optimal functions for administrators in enterprise environments.
Cisco MDS 9000 XRC Acceleration package: In conjunction with the SAN Extension over IP and Mainframe packages, this package provides acceleration (channel extension) over IP for the IBM z/OS Global Mirror replication solution, reducing the effects of latency at distances of up to 20,000 km.
Cisco MDS 9000 SME package: Separate packages for the fixed slot on the Cisco MDS 9222i and for either the Cisco MDS 9000 18/4-Port Multiservice Module or Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port SSN in the expansion slot enable Cisco SME to secure data stored on heterogeneous tapes, VTLs, and disks.
Cisco MDS 9000 DMM package: Separate packages for the fixed slot on the Cisco MDS 9222i and the Cisco MDS 9000 18/4-Port MSM in the expansion slot enable Cisco DMM to perform fabric-based data migration that transfers block data nondisruptively across heterogeneous storage volumes and across distances, regardless of whether the host is online or offline.
Cisco MDS 9000 IOA Services package: The Cisco MDS 9222i supports IOA services, an advanced software package that can significantly improve application performance when storage traffic is extended across long distances. When Fibre Channel and FCIP write acceleration is enabled, WAN throughput is optimized through reduced latency for command acknowledgments.
Cisco MDS 9000 SAN Extension over IP package: The features in this package are enabled as standard on the four fixed-slot 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports with the base Cisco MDS 9222i by default without the need of an additional license. This package can scale further to multiple application copies by acquiring additional SAN extension software package licenses in conjuction with an optional Cisco MDS 9000 18/4-Port MSM or Cisco MDS 9000 16-Port SSN inserted in the expansion slot. For these optional IP storage services-enabled modules, the Cisco MDS 9000 SAN Extension over IP package provides an integrated, cost-effective, and reliable business continuance solution that uses IP infrastructure by offering FCIP for remote SAN extension, along with a variety of advanced features to optimize the performance and manageability of FCIP links.
