Key Features

Increase Performance for Application and Solid State Storage Architectures

The HPE Storage Fibre Channel Switch B-series SN6700B delivers increased performance through a combination of improved throughput and low latency across 64Gb links in hyper-scale virtualization, large cloud infrastructures, and growing flash-based storage environments.

Improved performance of NVMe storage with 50% lower switching latency than 32Gb. Latency for locally switched ports is 460ns including forward error correction (FEC).1

With 48 SFP+ ports and 8 DD ports, it can scale up to 64 device ports for an aggregate throughput of 4.096Tbps.2

Ultra-dense and Highly Scalable

The HPE Storage Fibre Channel Switch B-series SN6700B scales up to 64 device ports in an efficiently designed 1U form factor, delivering increased port density and space utilization for simplified scalability.

Each of the 48 SFP+ ports and 8 DD ports supports 8, 10, 16, 32, and 64Gb FC speeds.

Provides flexibility to utilize high-speed 64Gb and 32Gb optics on demand to meet growing data center needs and provide backward compatibility to older infrastructures.
