HPE 8/40 Power Pack+ (24) Full Fabric Ports Enabled SAN Switch
Part Number: AM870A
The HP 8/40 SAN Switch is ideal for organizations requiring a flexible solution that is forward and backward compatible and will meet rapidly evolving storage requirements, either as a small
“building-block” switch for a departmental fabric or as a high-performance\ edge switch in larger core-to-edge SAN configurations.
The 8/40 SAN Switch is designed for rapidly growing storage requirements in mission-critical environments-combining 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gbit/sec Fibre Channel technology in configurations of 24,
32, or 40 ports in an efficiently designed 1U package. A fully populated 8/40 SAN Switch with 40 ports enabled features a non-blocking architecture at 8 Gbit/sec full duplex to provide an aggregate
bandwidth of 680 Gbit/sec. Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking can supply up to 64 Gbit/sec of balanced data throughput to reduce congestion and increase bandwidth. The 8/40 SAN Switch also
enables organizations to use 4 Gbit/sec SFPs today and upgrade to 8 Gbit/sec SFPs when required.
