Brocade 16Gb/16 SAN Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class - Switch - managed - 16 x 16Gb Fibre

Highlights

  • Enables data center consolidation and cost savings through state-of-the-art design and performance
  • Enables high density virtualization and deployment of I/O intensive applications on HP BladeSystems
  • Simplifies data center management through integration with management platforms and tools

Marketing description

Are you looking for a higher performance embedded Fiber Channel switch option for your HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosure? The Brocade 16Gb SAN Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class represents the next generation of embedded Fiber Channel switches with 16 Gbps performance. It hot-plugs into the back of the HP 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.

Product Features

  • Enables data center consolidation and cost savings through state-of-the-art design and performance
    The Brocade 16 Gb SAN Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class enables data center consolidation with HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosures through a state-of-the-art zero-footprint design while lowering cost through shared power and cooling, fewer cables and SFPs and a reduction in space. Enables support of virtualized environments through industry leading 16 Gbps Fiber Channel performance. Both internal and external facing ports auto-sense lower bandwidth components for flexibility and investment protection.
  • Enables high density virtualization and deployment of I/O intensive applications on HP BladeSystems
    The Brocade 16 Gb SAN Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class offers a non-blocking architecture that supports up to 896 Gbps of full duplex throughput. Supports port trunking of up to 8 SAN ports for a total of up to 128 Gbps balanced throughput. Trunking of the SAN-facing ports with external Brocade or HP B-series Switches provides a high-bandwidth solution while lowering costs through fewer SFPs and cables.
  • Simplifies data center management through integration with management platforms and tools
    The Brocade 16 Gb SAN Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class integrates with HP onboard administrator for BladeSystem, HP Systems Insight Manager, and HP storage essentials. It enables the use of industry standard interfaces to integrate management with other applications.
