Key Features

Improved Performance

HPE Storage SAN Director Switch features up to 64Gbps FC performance and up to 39.6Tbps chassis bandwidth to address I/O and bandwidth-intensive applications for private cloud storage and highly virtualized environments.

Supports flash-based storage workloads with up to 1 billion IOPS utilizing 64-port 64Gb FC blade, 48-port 64Gb FC blade, 64-port 32Gb QSFP blade, 48-port 32Gb FC blade, and 32Gb SAN extension blade.

Increase scalability with up to 2X throughput for high-density virtual machine (VM) deployments and larger fabrics, allowing organizations to support more storage devices using the same number of FC links.1

HPE Storage SAN Director Switch family provides higher chassis, slot-to-slot, and port performance, enabling faster deployment of applications.

HPE Storage SAN Director Switch offers local switching capabilities to verify that data traffic within the same port group does not consume slot bandwidth, increasing the number of line-rate ports.

Simplified Management

HHPE Storage SAN Director Switch simplifies monitoring, management, and diagnostics to avoid problems before they impact operations and it dramatically reduces total cost of ownership (TCO).

The HPE I/O Insight software with 64Gb and 32Gb FC technology enhances visibility into the health of your SAN.

Enables pro-active monitoring of I/O performance and behavior through integrated network sensors, allowing real-time monitoring of NVMe workloads, providing deep insight into problems, and improving service-level agreements (SLAs).

With new automation, organizations can quickly and reliably perform resource intensive tasks, such as provisioning, and enable uninterrupted SAN monitoring, so that tasks can be completed in less time. With automation, organizations can automate repetitive daily tasks and deliver consistent results.

Improves Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Solutions

The HPE Storage SAN Director Switch delivers high bandwidth, port density, and throughput required for application performance over WAN connections addressing demanding disaster recovery (DR) requirements through 64Gb, 32Gb FC, and 1GbE/10GbE/40GbE ports.

Reduces bandwidth costs with in-flight data compression at wire speed and increases security with in-flight data encryption.

Provides native 10Gbps FC support on the 32Gb and 64Gb blade.

Lower TCO

The HPE Storage Fibre Channel Switch SN8700B and HPE Storage Fibre Channel Switch SN8600B seamlessly integrate with NVMe throughout the fabric.

Enables high-density, core-edge, and active-active mesh chassis topologies reducing inter-switch cabling by up to 75%.2

To meet ever-increasing demands for faster, more reliable data access, it is essential for organizations to deploy a modernized infrastructure that reduces latency, increases bandwidth, and helps ensure near-continuous availability. Unprecedented performance is not enough on its own.
