Increase Performance for Application and Solid State Storage Architectures
The HPE B-series SN6700B Fibre Channel Switch 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 460 ns 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 B-series SN6700B Fibre Channel Switch 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.
