The Brocade FX8-24 extension blade, designed specifically for the Brocade DCX Backbone family, helps provide the fastest, most reliable, and most cost-effective network infrastructure for remote data replication, backup, and migration.

Twelve 8 Gbps fiber channel ports, 10 1 GbE ports provide unmatched fiber channel and FCIP bandwidth, port density, and throughput for maximum application performance over WAN links.The Brocade FX8-24 is an ideal foundation for building or expanding a high-performance SAN extension infrastructure for disaster recovery, data protection, and data mobility storage solutions. It leverages cost-effective IP WAN transport to extend open systems and mainframe disk and tape storage applications over distances that would otherwise be impossible, impractical, or too expensive with standard fiber channel connections.Organizations can install up to two Brocade FX8-24 blades in a Brocade DCX or DCX-4S Backbone, providing scalable fiber channel and FCIP bandwidth for larger enterprise data centers and multisite environments.The Brocade FX8-24 provides flexible deployment options within the Brocade DCX chassis, integrating seamlessly with fiber channel and application blades or providing standalone extension services. In addition, a broad range of optional advanced extension, FICON, and SAN fabric services are available to address the most challenging extension and storage networking requirements.
