Brocade ServerIron 350 switch provides high performance layer 2 through 7 switching, enabling highly secure and scalable IP and web application service infrastructure. The highly intelligent ServerIron layer 4-7 application switches use information that resides beyond the traditional layer 2 and 3 packet headers, deep in the application messages, to direct client requests to available and fast-responding servers. The switch transparently supports any IP-based applications, and offers specialized acceleration and optimization features for web services. The ServerIron 350 switch further improves service availability by securing the servers from many forms of Denial of Service (DoS), virus and worm attacks. The switch acts as a reliable last line of defense for server farms and applications. Superior performance delivered by innovative third-generation Brocade network processor technology offers security without sacrificing application performance. The switch also simplifies server farm management and application patching by allowing resources to be easily removed and inserted into the resource pool. Simplified management reduces operational costs and keeps the total cost of ownership (TCO) to a minimum.
Built on the Brocade JetCore ASIC architecture, the ServerIron 350 switches support high density Gigabit and 10-Gigabit Ethernet for superior server farm scalability and service performance. The JetCore ASIC supports hardware assisted standards-based sFlow network monitoring for all application traffic flows, which helps improve manageability and security of network and server resources.
