Key Features

High Density SAN Consolidation with Integrated Multiprotocol Support

The HPE C-series SN6640C Multiservice Switch is available in a base configuration of four ports of 32 Gbps Fibre Channel for high-performance SAN connectivity and two ports of 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet for FCIP storage services, running at a maximum speed of 1 Gbps.

It can be upgraded to enable an additional eight ports of 32 Gbps Fibre Channel by adding the on-demand upgrade license. The upgrade license also enables 10 Gigabit speed on the initial two Ethernet ports, two additional 1/10 Gigabit ports, two 25 Gigabit ports, and one 40 Gigabit port.

It provides flexible connectivity options toward datacenter switches, routers or DWDM systems. Both the 25G and 40G options can be very valuable for data with a lower level of compressibility, while the 1 G and 10 G options can meet the needs of small-medium organizations.

Remote SAN Extension with High-Performance FCIP

The HPE C-series SN6640C Multiservice Switch provides FCIP support for business continuity and disaster recovery as a standalone device and a FCIP SAN extension switch for HPE SN8700C Director.

This switch breaks the distance barriers of current Fibre Channel solutions with support for FCIP, enabling interconnection of SAN islands over extended distances.

You will get dramatically enhanced hardware-based FCIP compression performance for both high-bandwidth and low-bandwidth links, which provides immediate cost saving for expensive WAN infrastructure. Used with other hardware-based encryption, it provides high-performance SAN extension capabilities.

The switch supports hardware-based IPsec encryption for improved transmission security of sensitive data over extended distances. Hardware enablement of IPsec helps to provide high throughput.

Comprehensive Robust Network Security and Customization

The HPE C-series SN6640C Multiservice Switch supports hardware-based data compression and tape acceleration to enhance remote backup operations and allows more data to be transferred over WAN connections more cost effectively. Shift your budget from operations to innovation.

The switch supports a variety of security features to facilitate protection of your customer data. A variety of security techniques are supported such as encryption, switch authentication, data integrity, hardware-enforced zoning, and more across multiprotocol connectivity.

The switch offers a highly available solution that protects data from unauthorized access and keeps data private while meeting regulatory compliance and avoiding financial consequences of a security breach.
