Brocade M6505 16Gb Fibre Channel SAN I/O Module
24—16 Gbps Fibre Channel ports (16 internal server ports and 8 external fabric ports). Zero footprint, hot-pluggable design with no additional fans or power supplies. Dynamic Ports on Demand (PoD) and pay-as-you-growť port upgrades for 12-port configurations
Up to six 2700W hot-plug power supplies.
Based on Dell Energy Smart technologies, the M1000e power supplies deliver greater levels of efficiency, even at low levels of utilization.
Supported power supply configurations include:
3+3 and 2+2 (AC redundancy)
2+1, 3+1, 4+2, and 5+1 (power supply redundancy)
2+0 and 3+0 (non-redundant mode)
The M1000e chassis supports new Dynamic Power Supply Engagement functionality, which (if enabled) puts lightly loaded power supplies into standby mode, driving up the utilization and the efficiency of the active supplies.
Dell supports either 110-120V or 208-240V AC power supply input and supports a wide range of power distribution options. Dell recommends 208-240V AC for all production environments.
Chassis Form Factor: 10U modular enclosure holds up to sixteen half-height blade servers
44.0cm(17.3")H x 44.7cm(17.6"ť)W x 75.4cm(29.7")D
Empty Chassis only 98lbs (44.5kg)
Chassis w/ all rear modules (IOMs, PSUs, CMCs, KVM) - 176lbs (79.8kg)
