QuickSpecs
Overview
HThe HP 8/20q SAN Switch offers the simplest and most affordable way to share the capacity of Fibre Channel storage devices among
multiple servers. Connect as little as 2 devices or scale up to 20 Fibre Channel devices with a single switch. Mix any combination of
servers, disk storage or backup storage for maximum flexibility and investment protection. The HP 8/20q also supports legacy 4Gb and
2Gb Fibre Channel SAN devices and the ability to interconnect multiple Fibre Channel switches to expand a SAN. The HP 8/20q switch
interoperates with existing Brocade and Cisco switches making the H-Series 8/20q a valuable contributor to any SAN.
The HP 8/20q supports all of the HP Fibre Channel storage arrays and Fibre Channel backup solutions including:
P2000 Series Disk Arrays (MSA family)
P6000 Series Disk Arrays (EVA family)
3PAR Series Disk Arrays
StoreVirtual 4000 Series FC (Lefthand family with Fibre Channel connectivity)
Enterprise Backup Solutions
With the dependency on fewer storage devices in a consolidated SAN and the increasing number of virtualized servers on fewer server
hardware platforms, the need to build redundancy into your SAN is paramount. The 8/20q switches and H-Series Host Bus Adapters can
be configured as redundant fiber channel paths to reduce downtime associated with a single failed Fibre Channel component
