HPE 8/8 (8) Full Fabric Ports Enabled SAN Switch
Part Number: AM867B
HPE 8/8 SAN Switch is targeted for SMB enterprises and is ideal for entry-level SANs, and as an edge switch for core-to-edge SAN environments. The 8/8 SAN Switch provides SAN connectivity
that improves system performance, maximizes the value of virtual server deployments, and reduces overall storage costs.
The 8/8 Base SAN Switch provides an affordable single-switch solution for a new, small SAN installation and connects to storage and servers only. An optional Full Fabric SAN scaling license provides
connectivity to other switches. This comes with a Full Fabric license and may be connected to multiple switches. Both 8 port switches provide growth options to non-disruptively scale to a max of
24 enabled ports.
The 8/8 SAN Switch provides auto-sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb full duplex performance to enable up to 128 Gb of throughput. For investment protection, the 8/8 SAN Switch may be populated with
4 Gb B-Series SFPs today and upgraded to 8 Gb B-Series SFPS when necessary.
