HPE SN3600B 32Gb 24/8 8‑port 32Gb Short Wave SFP28 Fibre Channel Switch
Are you struggling to meet the I/O demands of hyperscale virtualization, cloud, or growing flash-based SANs?
HPE B-series 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 can replace 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 HPE 3PAR software. Data reliability is enhanced with forward error correction (FEC) by automatically detecting and recovering bit error along with HPE Power Pack+ software, which maintains efficient SAN-health.
