Does your EMC storage have FC or iSCSI ports?

If your storage have iSCSI ports you need only some ethernet ports and you have a small SAN based on iSCSI.

If your storage have only FC ports then you need FC HBAs for your server.

The Brocade 300 is a pure FC SAN switch no iSCSI interfaces.

If this helps please mark the answer as helpful to help others.

Andreas
