• Provides an affordable, flexible foundation
for entry-level SANs, and an edge switch
for core-to-edge SAN environments
• Delivers up to 24 ports of 8 Gbps
performance in an energy-efficient,
optimized 1U form factor to support  
the most demanding server and virtual
server deployments
• Simplifies configuration and management
with easy-to-use tools such as the
Brocade EZSwitchSetup wizard, and is
Microsoft Simple SAN-compatible
• Enables “pay-as-you-grow” expansion with
Ports On Demand (PoD) scalability from  
8 to 16 or 24 ports in 8-port increments
• Offers dual functionality as either  
a full-fabric SAN switch or as an  
NPIV-enabled Brocade Access Gateway
that simplifies server connectivity in
heterogeneous enterprise fabrics
• Protects existing device investments  
with auto-sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gbps
capabilities and native operation with
Brocade and Brocade M-Series fabrics
• Future-proofs investments by enabling
organizations to use 4 Gbps SFPs today
and upgrade to 8 Gbps SFP+ when required
Small SAN Affordability with 
Growth Capabilities
The Brocade 300 significantly increases
performance and functionality for SANs at an
entry-level price. Based on sixth-generation
Brocade technology, the Brocade 300
combines auto-sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gbps
throughput with features that greatly enhance
fabric operation. The evolutionary design
provides these capabilities while consuming
less than 2.5 watts of power per port for
exceptional power and cooling efficiency.
As a result, organizations can enjoy the
advantages of low-cost device connectivity
and powerful capabilities that make SAN
technology highly accessible and affordable.
In addition, hot code load and activation
help maximize application uptime with
faster system software upgrades and
maintenance to reduce the dependency  
on scheduled outages.
As the value and volume of business data
continue to rise, organizations need technology
solutions that are easy to implement and
manage, and that can grow and change  
with minimal disruption. The Brocade
Switch provides small to medium-sized
enterprises with Storage Area Network
(SAN) connectivity that simplifies their  
IT management infrastructures, improves
system performance, maximizes the value
of virtual server deployments, and reduces
overall storage costs.
The 8 Gbps Fibre Channel Brocade 300
provides a simple, affordable, single-switch
solution for both new and existing SANs.  
To simplify deployment, the Brocade 300
features the EZSwitchSetup wizard and other
usability and configuration enhancements,  
as well as the optional Brocade Access
Gateway mode of operation. Moreover, it
provides state-of-the-art performance and
Ports on Demand (PoD) scalability to
support SAN expansion and enable
long-term investment protection.
