Overview
The HP 8/24 SAN Switch delivers affordable and flexible 8 Gb/s connectivity and can be incorporated into an extensive core fabric or
placed as an edge switch for SAN environments. The 8/24 SAN Switch is ideal for entry and SMB customers requiring a simple, yet
flexible networked storage connectivity solution that will meet evolving requirements. The 8/24 SAN Switch provides the needed
connectivity and flexibility at a price point that is affordable, while delivering industry-leading performance for long-term investment
protection. It is a solution that is easy to deploy and requires little management time, reducing operational costs.
The 8/24 Base SAN Switch delivers sixteen high performance auto Sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel ports. With powerful yet
flexible capabilities-such as Ports On Demand scalability to 24 ports in an 8-port increment-the 8/24 SAN Switch enables organizations
to start small and grow their storage networks in a non-disruptive manner. A fully populated 8/24 SAN Switch with 24 enabled ports
provides 384 Gb switching (8 Gb full duplex) capacity for un-congested sustained, 8 Gb full duplex throughput. In addition,
organizations can choose to initially deploy 4 Gbit/sec SFPs and upgrade to 8 Gbit/sec SFP+ at a later date when necessary.
The 8/24 SAN Switch with 24 enabled ports may be deployed as a full-fabric switch or in Access Gateway mode, which provides
connectivity into any SAN (the default mode setting is a switch). Access Gateway mode utilizes N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) switch
standards to present Fibre Channel connections as logical devices to SAN fabrics. Attaching through NPIV-enabled switches and
directors, the 8/24 SAN Switch with 24 enabled ports in Access Gateway mode can connect to Brocade, McDATA, Cisco, or other SAN
fabrics. Key benefits of Access Gateway mode include:
Improved scalability for large or rapidly growing server and virtual server environments
Simplified management through the reduction of domains and management tasks
Fabric interoperability for mixed-vendor SAN configurations that require full functionality
An optional enhanced Power Pack+ software bundle can be purchased separately and includes Fabric Vision, Fabric Watch, ISL
Trunking, Extended Fabric and Advanced Performance Monitor. The software bundle provides the SAN administrator with the
necessary tools to proactively monitor the health and performance thresholds of the network, while also ensuring the highest levels of
security, scalability and manageability. Power Pack+ software enables infrastructure management through a single-pane-of-glass.
