QuickSpecs
Overview
The HP StorageWorks SAN Switch 2/16-EL is a 2 Gb transfer speed Fibre Channel SAN Fabric Switch featuring the optional ability
to trunk or aggregate the throughput of up to four inter switch ports. With sixteen ports, users will be able to create up to four 8 Gb
Trunked ISLs between two or more similar 2 Gb switches. It also features optional SFP (Small-Form-Factor-Pluggable) connectors,
which allow for higher port density than was available using GBICs. The higher speed, coupled with the optional Trunking feature,
will allow users to install these switches in pairs for use as high speed backbone devices for joining SAN islands with little to no
performance degradation. The increased performance of these switches also is appropriate where high throughput needs exist, such
as video streaming, intensive on-line transaction processing (OLTP), and medical imaging. The SAN Switch 2/16-EL combines 1 Gb
and 2 Gb Fibre Channel throughput with new features that greatly enhance switch operation.
The SAN Switch 2/16-EL scales to a maximum of 4 switches in a SAN fabric. An optional upgrade license increases switch scaling to
full SAN configurations.

    An ASIC based capability in the 2 Gb family of switches that enables new applications and features. The Frame Filtering Frame Filtering switch now has the ability to "view" the first 64 bytes of the Fibre Channel frame. At this time, Frame Filtering enables advanced capabilities such as Advanced Zoning and Advanced Performance Monitoring.

    Each 2-Gb switch needs its own license. The switch operating system views the trunk as a single, high bandwidth resource (up to 8 Gb) when routing connections between switches. Connections are load-balanced across the individual links, which comprise the logical trunk group.

    Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)-based authentication, and 128-bit encryption of the switch's private key used for digital signatures. With its flexible design, Secure Fabric OS enables organizations to customize SAN security to meet specific policy requirements. In addition, Secure Fabric OS works in conjunction with Advanced Zoning to further secure access to the SAN, simplify storage management, and reduce provisioning time.
