To remain competitive, IT organizations must keep pace with ever-increasing workloads without a similar increase in their budgets or resources. While virtualization has provided some relief by enabling the benefits of faster deployment and consolidation, it tends to put additional stress on data center networks. The HPE SN6000B 16Gb Fiber Channel Switch meets the needs of hyper-scale, private cloud storage environments by delivering market-leading 16Gb FC technology and capabilities that support highly virtualized environments. It is designed to enable maximum flexibility and investment protection, the SN6000B switch scales from 24 to 48 ports and supports 4, 8, 10, or 16 Gbps speeds in an efficiently designed 1U package. It also provides a simplified deployment process and a point-and-click user interface making it powerful and easy to use. It offers low-cost access to SAN technology while providing "pay-as-you-grow" scalability to meet the needs of an evolving storage environment.
High speed 16 Gb optimized Inter Switch Links (ISLs) provide twice the performance as previous generation Fiber Channel switches. The net result is there are fewer links, fewer cables, fewer ports and less power for the same performance.
Metro cloud connectivity
Operating speeds of 16, 10, 8, and 4 Gbps offer a wide range of performance for long distance connectivity. In addition to native fiber, operating the port at 10 Gbps is also supported over Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) solutions, such as Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM). Integrated Inter-Switch Link (ISL) Compression provides the capability to compress all data in flight, over an ISL which allows the customers the choice of either moving more data or reducing bandwidth costs.
Diagnostic ports are a port type that enables administrators to identify and isolate optics and cable problems, reducing fabric deployment and diagnostic times. Organizations also can use D Ports to run a variety of tests for ports, SFPs, and cables for faults, latency, and distance. SAN Network Advisor, offered as an option, provides comprehensive management of data center SAN fabrics, including configuration, monitoring, diagnostics, best-practices validation, and management of B-series Directors, Switches, and Host Bus Adapters (HBAs).
Cloud optimized performance
Provides aggregate 1536 Gb full-duplex throughput and any eight ports can be trunked for 128 Gb Inter-Switch Links (ISLs). Exchange-based Dynamic Path Selection (DPS) optimizes fabric-wide performance and load balancing by automatically routing data to the most efficient available path.
