HP S/WORKS 8/40 BASE SAN SWITCH 24 PORT ACTIVE WITH RAILS
Product Code: AM869A
- Product Description
HP 8/40 SAN Switch is ideal for organizations requiring a flexible solution that's forward and backward compatible, either as a small “building-block” switch for a departmental fabric or as a high-performance edge switch in larger core-to-edge SAN configurations. The 8/40 SAN Switch enables 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb FC technology in configurations of 24, 32, or 40 ports. A fully populated SAN switch with 40 ports provides an aggregate bandwidth of 680 Gb/sec. The 8/40 SAN Switch also allows organizations to use 4 Gbit/sec SFPs today and upgrade to 8 Gb/sec SFPs when required. The optional Integrated Routing provides selective device sharing while maintaining remote fabric isolation for higher levels of scalability and fault isolation. The Power Pack+ software provides the SAN administrator with the necessary tools to monitor the health and performance of the network through a single pane of glass. Enhanced capabilities ensures ample bandwidth for mission-critical applications.
• Includes simultaneous wire-speed support for all ports to provide a high-performance system with aggregate bandwidth of up to 640 Gbit/sec full duplex
• Simplifies SAN management, negating the need to map application performance requirements to port speeds
• 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
