Summary

HP SN6000 stackable 8Gb Fibre Channel Switches are designed to make enterprise SANs affordable and easy to install and use, especially as your network expands. With low-cost, high performance scalability in mind, each SN6000 switch features 20 device ports, plus 4 high-speed ISL stacking ports for linking SN6000 switches. Included SAN Connection Manager (SCM) software enables network management and storage provisioning from a single screen. Transparent router functionality, standard in H-series switches, provides seamless non disruptive access to servers and storage on HP B-series and C-series SANs.

Build a scalable SAN with less hardware and less complexity. Begin with one SN6000 switch with 20 device ports for an affordable solution, and then add new switches for up to 120 usable device ports per stack or 500+ ports in multi-stack topologies. Stacking enables networks with simpler topologies, fewer cables to manage, and fewer optics to purchase. Non-disruptive hardware expansion using dedicated stacking ports allows customers to add ports/switches without unplugging cables; and software upgrades are non-disruptive via SAN Connection Manager wizards. H-series switches… high performance at affordable pricing.
