QuickSpecs
Overview
The HP StorageWorks 4/32B SAN Switch is the successor to the 4/32 SAN Switch, which shipped in January, 2005. The
4/32B SAN Switch offers an improved TCO because it consumes 20 percent less power, generates less heat, and requires
less cooling then the 4/32 SAN Switch. The HP StorageWorks 4/32B SAN Switch delivers excellent overall value and
investment protection as the foundation for a small SAN or as an edge switch in a larger core to edge enterprise SAN.
Whether incorporated into an expansive core fabric or tactically placed at the edge, this switch delivers the performance of
1,2, or 4 Gb technologies in a 1u footprint. The switch is available in three models:
HP StorageWorks 4/32B SAN Switch Power Pack with 32 active ports and value added software
HP StorageWorks 4/32B Full SAN Switch with 32 active ports
HP StorageWorks 4/32B SAN Switch with 16 active ports (Base)
An optional 8 port license scales the number of active ports to 24 or up to 32 ports.
Each switch variant has removable redundant power supplies/cooling units. These integrated POWER/FAN units reduce
overall Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) count, lower power dissipation, and reduce cooling requirements. The switch is ideal
for supporting medium to large corporate infrastructure implementations.
The 4/32B SAN Switch Power Pack includes the 4/32B SAN Switch (Full) with additional software: Fabric Watch, ISL
Trunking, Extended Fabric, and Performance Monitor. Power Pack software provides SAN administrators with the necessary
tools to monitor the health and performance of the network while insuring the highest levels of security, scalability, and
manageability.
