Overview
Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class
The Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class delivers an easy to manage embedded Fibre Channel switch with 8
Gbps performance. The Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch hot-plugs into the back of the HPE BladeSystem c-Class Enclosure. The
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 such as server
virtualization. New features in the Power Pack+ option enable you to manage data flow to maintain optimized application
performance. The 12 or 24 auto-sensing ports support lower bandwidth components for investment protection and an upgrade
license enables you to 'pay as you grow'. The Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch saves space and cost, significantly simplifies the SAN
environment, enables easier deployment and management, and delivers the performance required for emerging higher throughput
applications.

Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch
Enables data center consolidation with HPE BladeSystem c-Class 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 and other emerging technologies through high-
speed technology that doubles the performance of the storage network. Both internal and
external facing ports auto-sense lower bandwidth components for flexibility and investment
protection (2, 4, or 8 Gb).
Includes connection speed support for all ports to provide a high-performance system with
aggregate bandwidth of up to 192 Gbps (24 ports x 8 Gbps at full duplex).
Now providing support for up to a single trunk made up of all eight SAN ports for a total of up
to 64 Gbps balanced throughput. Trunking of the SAN-facing ports with external Brocade or
HPE B-series switches provides a high-bandwidth solution while lowering costs through fewer
SFPs and cables. F-Port Trunking supported in Access Gateway mode.
Enables organizations to better manage data flows and meet service level agreements while
maintaining optimized application performance in virtual environments with new Adaptive
