HP StorageWorks 8/80 Base (48) Full Fabric Ports Enabled SAN Switch
Part Number: AM871A
HP StorageWorks 8/80 SAN Switch is ideal for medium-to-large-sized organizations that need a scalable and high-availability solution to meet rapidly evolving storage requirements. When deployed as a core SAN fabric switch, the fully enabled 80 port SAN Switch provides a single-switch core footprint that is ideal for SAN fan-out using lower-density B-series switches. The 8/80 SAN Switch features a non-blocking architecture with as many as 80 ports concurrently active at 8 Gbit/sec full duplex providing an aggregate bandwidth of 1280 Gbit/sec. Optional Integrated Routing provides selective device sharing while maintaining remote fabric isolation for higher levels of scalability and fault isolation. The Power Pack+ software provides the SAN administrator with the necessary tools to monitor the health and performance of the network through a single pane of glass. Enhanced capabilities ensures ample bandwidth for mission-critical applications.
