More Power, More Value, Small Footprint: Using Next-Generation Switches to Power Your Data Center

As data in your organization grows, additional infrastructure is needed to support that growth. Figuring out how to meet growing capacity needs, increase SAN efficiency and upgrade performance - all while controlling costs can mean significant growing pains for IT professionals.

With the right technology, your company can deploy fabric switches that offer the latest 4 Gb/s performance and a complete range of features and functionality in a smaller footprint. This delivers flexibility in terms of deployment options, scalability and space efficiency. McDATA's Sphereon 4400 and 4700 switches were designed to not only perform the essential functions of a fabric switch but also help data centers of all sizes contain and control the top three most operating expenses.

Learn how McDATA's Sphereon 4400 and 4700 switches help you:

  • Lower real-estate costs with a smaller footprint, and higher port density
  • Minimize the cost of maintenance and support from securing the customers' up-time and making the switch easy to maintain
  • Curtail utility costs with low power consumption and lower cooling requirements
