HPE StorageWorks 8/8 (8) Full Fabric Ports Enabled SAN Switch - switch - rack-mountable

Part Code:
AM867A
HPE StorageWorks 8/8 (8) Full Fabric Ports Enabled SAN Switch - Switch - 8 x SFP - rack-mountable
Key Selling Points
  • Remove/avoid performance bottlenecks in high-density virtualized server environments.
  • Includes simultaneous wire-speed support for all ports to provide a high-performance system with aggregate bandwidth of up to 384 Gb/s full duplex.
  • Optimizes fabric-wide performance and load balancing by automatically routing data to all available paths in the fabric.
  • Delivers low latency, power efficiency, and high reliability while providing a highly scalable and flexible platform for advanced fabric services.
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.
  • High Performance
    Remove/avoid performance bottlenecks in high-density virtualized server environments.
    Enables rapid deployment with minimal configuration in existing environments; provides the highest performance available, with complete backward and forward investment protection.
    Very affordable, enables "pay-as-you-grow" 8-port scalability for easy, non-disruptive growth in highly dynamic business environment.
  • High Scalability
    Includes simultaneous wire-speed support for all ports to provide a high-performance system with aggregate bandwidth of up to 384 Gb/s full duplex.
    Provides seamless server connectivity to multi-vendor fabric environments, and allows a great number of servers to connect to a SAN fabric without increasing switch domain count.
    Allows up to eight ports (at 2, 4, or 8 Gb/s speeds) between a pair of switches to be combined to form a single logical ISL with a speed of up to 64 Gb/s (128 Gb/s full duplex) for optimal bandwidth utilization and load balancing.
  • Improved TCO
    Optimizes fabric-wide performance and load balancing by automatically routing data to all available paths in the fabric.
    Simplifies SAN management, negating the need to map application performance requirements to port speeds.
    Advanced fabric services to optimize SAN performance and resource utilization.
  • Investment Protection
    Delivers low latency, power efficiency, and high reliability while providing a highly scalable and flexible platform for advanced fabric services.
  • The 8/8 SAN Switch includes 8 enabled ports with Advanced Fabric OS, Full Fabric, Advanced Zoning, Web Tools, and an accessory kit that includes hardcopy documentation (SAN Switch Installation Guide, Read-me-First doc, EULA, Safety and Regulatory Guides), rack-mount kit, serial cable, standard and PDU power cords.
