Are you looking to modernize your storage network?
Today’s mission-critical storage environments require greater consistency, predictability, and performance to keep pace with growing business demands. Faced with explosive data growth, data centers need more I/O capacity to accommodate the massive amounts of data, applications, and workloads.
The HPE C-series SN8700C Fibre Channel Director Switch is a director-class SAN switch designed for deployment in small to medium-sized storage networks to support enterprise clouds and business transformation. It layers a comprehensive set of intelligent features onto a high-performance, protocol-independent switch fabric.
The HPE SN8700C Director Switch enables enterprise clouds, transforms large storage networks, lowers operating costs, and deploys Fibre Channel, IBM Fibre Connectivity (FICON), and Fibre Channel (FC) over Ethernet (FCoE) on a single fabric.
IT organizations continue to face unprecedented data growth as more platforms, applications, and users connect to the data center network. In turn, the storage network infrastructure must continue evolving to enable fast, continuous, and cost effective access to mission critical data from anywhere in the world.
To address this challenge, the HPE 1606 Extension SAN Switch helps provide fast, reliable, and cost-effective network infrastructure for remote data replication, backup, and migration. Leveraging next-generation Fibre Channel and advanced Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) technology, the 1606 Extension SAN Switch provides a flexible and extensible platform to move more data faster and further than ever before.
The HPE 1606 Extension SAN Switch offers up to sixteen (16) 8 Gb Fibre Channel ports and six (6) 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports to provide unmatched Fibre Channel and FCIP bandwidth, port density, and throughput for maximum application performance over WAN links.
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 SAN Director Switch portfolio delivers a powerful and reliable Fibre Channel (FC) and multiprotocol 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 Switch portfolio contains the HPE B-series SN8600B 32 Gb FC Switch (Front and reverse air-flow) and the HPE B-series SN8000B Switch 16 Gb FC Switch. The HPE 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.
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.
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.
Are you looking for a high-speed Fibre Channel connectivity for All-Flash arrays?
HPE C-series SN6620C Fibre Channel Switch delivers 32 Gbps FC switching providing high-speed FC connectivity from the server rack to the SAN core. It empowers small, midsize, and large enterprises that are rapidly deploying cloud-scale applications providing the benefits of greater bandwidth, scale, and consolidation. The switch allows seamless transition to Fibre Channel Non-Volatile Memory Express (FC-NVMe) workloads whenever available without any hardware upgrade in the SAN. For flexibility, the HPE C-series SN6620C Fibre Channel Switch scales from 24-48 ports. Additionally, investing in this switch for the lower speed (8 or 16 Gbps) server rack gives you the flexibility to upgrade to 32 Gbps performance in the future.
Are you looking for a higher performance embedded Fibre Channel switch option for your HPE BladeSystem c-Class enclosure?
The Brocade 16Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class represents the next generation of embedded Fibre Channel switches with 16 Gb/s performance. It hot-plugs into the back of the HPE BladeSystem c-Class Enclosure and its integrated design frees up rack space, enables shared power and cooling, and reduces cabling and small form-factor pluggables. Enhanced trunking support with external switches provides higher bandwidth to enable demanding applications and high density server virtualization. In addition, the 16 or 28 auto-sensing ports support lower bandwidth components for investment protection and an upgrade license enables customers to 'pay as they grow'. The Brocade 16Gb SAN Switch saves space and cost, simplifies the SAN environment, enables easier deployment and management and delivers the performance required for higher throughput applications.
