Are you looking to modernize your storage-networking infrastructure, massively scale in a smaller footprint, automate procedures to reduce human error, and deliver greater efficiency to meet the dynamic and growing demands of your business? The HPE StoreFabric SAN Director portfolio delivers a powerful and reliable Fibre Channel (FC) and multi-protocol switching infrastructure that can unleash the full performance of flash and emerging NVMe-based storage. It provides a mission-critical, scalable, and high-performance foundation for enterprise data centers with private and hybrid-cloud deployments and highly virtualized environments. The HPE SAN Director portfolio contains the HPE StoreFabric SN8600B 32 Gb FC Switch (Front and reverse air-flow) and the HPE StoreFabric SN8000B Switch 16 Gb FC Switch. The HPE StoreFabric SAN Director consists of an 8-slot and a 4-slot chassis providing up to 512 Gen6 32 Gb FC ports and up to 32 QSFP based ICLs which are equivalent to 128 FC ports.
HPE 8/8 SAN Switch is targeted for SMB enterprises and is ideal for entry-level SANs, and as an edge switch for core-to-edge SAN environments. The 8/8 SAN Switch provides SAN connectivity that improves system performance, maximizes the value of virtual server deployments, and reduces overall storage costs.
The 8/8 Base SAN Switch provides an affordable single-switch solution for a new, small SAN installation and connects to storage and servers only. An optional Full Fabric SAN scaling license provides connectivity to other switches. This comes with a Full Fabric license and may be connected to multiple switches. Both 8 port switches provide growth options to non-disruptively scale to a max of 24 enabled ports.
The 8/8 SAN Switch provides auto-sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb full duplex performance to enable up to 128 Gb of throughput. For investment protection, the 8/8 SAN Switch may be populated with 4 Gb B-Series SFPs today and upgraded to 8 Gb B-Series SFPS when necessary.
The HPE 8/24 8Gb FC SAN switch addresses the needs of SMB organizations as well as large enterprises by functioning as a standalone core switch or as lower-cost edge switch in large core-to-edge tiered storage networks.
The 8/24 FC SAN switches provides unprecedented investment protection. Auto-sensing ports that support backward compatibility with 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gbit/sec devices significantly reduce deployment complexity and costs, while providing compatibility with installed devices. Organizations that do not require 8 Gbit/sec interfaces can populate the new switches with 4 Gbit/sec SFPs, while preserving their ability to easily upgrade to 8 Gbit/sec SFPs in the future.
The 8/24 SAN Switch with 24 enabled ports may be deployed as a full-fabric switch or in Access Gateway mode, which provides connectivity into any SAN. Access Gateway mode utilizes NPIV switch standards to present Fibre Channel connections as logical devices to SAN fabrics.
The Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class delivers an easy to manage embedded native Fibre Channel switch with 8 Gb/s performance.

New features in the Power Pack+ option enable you to manage data flow to maintain optimized application performance. The 12 or 24 auto-sensing ports support lower bandwidth components for investment protection and an upgrade license enables you to ‘pay as you grow’. The Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch saves space and cost, significantly simplifies the SAN environment, enables easier deployment and management, and delivers the performance required for emerging higher throughput applications.
Are you struggling to meet the I/O demands of hyperscale virtualization, cloud, or growing flash-based SANs? HPE StoreFabric SN3600B Fibre Channel Switch provides Gen6 32 Gb Fibre Channel (FC) in an ultra-dense 1U format from 8-ports up to 24-ports, and is affordable for limited budgets. It is capable of replacing three generations of FC with its backward compatibility with 4, 8, and 16 Gb FC for your investment protection. Designed to build a flash-ready infrastructure, it specifically adapts to business application needs. Applications requiring more throughput and lower latency can take advantage of NVMe over FC ready support as well. SAN simplicity is achieved with a simple 3-step install process and SAN deployments with HPE 3PAR all-flash storage are automated using HPE Smart SAN for 3PAR software. Data reliability is enhanced with forward error correction (FEC) by automatically detecting and recovering bit error along with the HPE Power Pack+ software maintains efficient SAN-health.
