Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch 8/12c - Switch - Managed - 12 x 8Gb Fibre Channel - plug-in module - for ProLiant c3000
Key Selling Points
  • Affordable 8Gb FC SAN Switch enables data center consolidation with HPE BladeSystem c-Class through a state-of-the-art zero-footprint design while lowering cost through shared power and cooling, fewer cables and SFPs, and a reduction in space.
  • Providing support for up to a single trunk made up of all eight SAN ports for a total of up to 64 Gb/s balanced throughput. Trunking of the SAN-facing ports with external Brocade or HPE B-series Switches provides a high-bandwidth solution while lowering costs through fewer SFPs and cables.
  • Integrates with HPE Onboard Administrator for BladeSystem, HPE Systems Insight Manager, and HPE Storage Essentials and leverages HPE B-series management and monitoring tools. An SMI-s API enables the use of industry standard interfaces to integrate management with other applications.
The Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class delivers an easy to manage embedded native Fibre Channel switch with 8 Gb/s performance. The affordable Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch hot-plugs into the back of the HPE BladeSystem c-Class Enclosure. The integrated design frees up rack space, enables shared power and cooling, and reduces cabling and the number of optics. Enhanced trunking support with external switches provides higher bandwidth to enable demanding applications such as server virtualization. New features in the Power Pack+ option enable you to manage data flow to maintain optimized application performance. The 12 or 24 auto-sensing ports support lower bandwidth components for investment protection and an upgrade license enables you to 'pay as you grow'. The Brocade 8Gb SAN Switch saves space and cost, significantly simplifies the SAN environment, enables easier deployment and management, and delivers the performance required for emerging higher throughput applications.
