The Silkworm Family of Switches

The industry-leading Brocade SilkWorm family of fabric switches connects servers and storage devices throughout Fibre Channel Storage Area Network (SAN) fabrics. These high-speed, robust storage networks enable organizations to access and share data in a high-performance, manageable, and scalable manner.

To help protect existing investments, the SilkWorm family of products is fully forward and backward compatible. This capability enables organizations to migrate from 1 to 2 Gbit/sec SAN environments and deploy a highly scalable core-to-edge storage networking infrastructure. SilkWorm switch models range in size from 8 to dual 64 ports, and can function as standalone, edge, or core switches, depending upon specific SAN requirements. Certain models, such as the SilkWorm 12000, are well suited for cores in larger SANs but can also function effectively as standalone or edge switches.
