Overview
The HP SN8000B and DC SAN Directors are part of the B-series portfolio and are the industry's leading Fibre Channel switching
infrastructure solutions, combining breakthrough performance, scalability, and energy efficiency with long-term investment
protection. The SN8000B Directors were designed to unleash the full potential of private cloud storage and virtualization. With
unmatched scalability, 16 Gbps performance, reliability, and functionality, the SN8000B Directors are the strategic platform for
transforming current SAN fabrics into cloud-optimized SANs. For SAN fabrics not requiring the performance of the 16 Gbps platforms,
the DC SAN Directors are the most advanced 8 Gbps switching platforms in the industry.
All B-series SAN Directors are based on the same core technology and consist of two form factors. The SN8000B 8-Slot Director and DC
SAN Backbone Director are both a 14U chassis and support 8 Fibre Channel blades for large enterprises to deliver maximum scalability,
performance, and functionality. The SN8000B 4-Slot Director and the DC04 SAN Director are both a 9U chassis and support 4 Fibre
Channel blades for mid-size enterprises as the core of their SANs.
The SN8000B SAN Directors are based on 7th generation technology and provide up to 384 16Gb or 512 8Gb FC ports. These directors
also provide up to 32 QSFP based Inter Chassis Links (ICLs) which are equivalent to 128 16Gb FC ports. They support a range of fibre
channel blade options including 32 port and 48 port 16Gb blades, 32 port and 48 port 8Gb enhanced blades and the 64 port 8Gb blade.
They provide up to 8.2Tbps of total aggregate bandwidth and 512Gbps of slot bandwidth and are the ideal foundation for private cloud
storage and highly virtualized environments.
The DC SAN Directors are based on 6th generation technology and provide up to 512 8Gb FC ports. They support several types of port
blades -16, 32, 48, and 64 port 8Gb blades. They provide up to 4.1Tbps of total aggregate bandwidth and 256Gbps of slot bandwidth
and are ideally suited to address the problems of traditional data centers
B-series SAN Directors offer multi protocol support through various blades with autosensing support, depending on model, for
16/10/8/4/2 Gbps Fibre Channel, FICON, FCIP, FCoE (not supported with SN8000B) and data at rest Encryption.
To help minimize downtime costs, all B-series SAN Directors build upon years of innovation and leverages the core B-series technology
performing at greater than 99.999 percent uptime in the world's most demanding data centers.
The Power Pack+ set of tools monitors the network's health and performance. It is pre-configured on every SN8000B 8-Slot Director
and DC SAN Backbone Director. It is available pre-configured or as an upgrade for every SN8000B 4-Slot Director and DC04 SAN
Director. Power Pack+ also provides the foundation for integration into HP storage management tools, enabling infrastructure
management through a single-pane-of-glass.
New features exclusively available on the SN8000B SAN Directors:
There is a common ICL POD (Ports on Demand) license between SN8000B 8-Slot and 4-Slot chassis. A single ICL POD license will enable
16 QSFP ICLs or 1Tbps of bandwidth in both SN8000B 8-Slot and 4-Slot Director. A subsequent ICL POD license will enable an additional
16 QSFP ICLs or 1Tbps in SN8000B 8-Slot Director. New, optional Enterprise ICL PODs will enable from five to nine chassis connected
together and is added to the base ICL POD.
SN8000B SAN Directors allow customers to configure a port in any 16Gb blade at 10Gb FC speed. This is required for DWDM metro
connectivity and will be enabled by a slot based 10GE license.
SN8000B SAN Directors provide features like in-flight encryption and compression as part of base Fabric Operating System (FOS) with
any 16Gb blade. There are new diagnostic features (Diagnostic-Port aka D-Port, Optic Health Monitoring) that will allow functional and
stress testing of cables and optics. They use the capabilities of FOS, Director ASIC, and B-series 16Gb optic and are available on 16Gb
port blade with 16Gb B-series optics without any additional software license.
