  • 1 x HP Storageworks BK780A 617222-001- 8GB 24 Port Fibre Channel FC Switch


The HP StorageWorks SN6000 Stackable 8Gb Fibre Channel switch is designed to make Enterprise SANs affordable and easy to use, especially as the network expands. Built with low-cost, high-performance scalability in mind, each SN6000 features 20 device ports supporting 8/4/2 Gbps speeds, plus 4 high-speed 10/20 Gbps stacking ports for linking SN6000 switches. Included Simple SAN Connection Manager (SSCM) software enables network management and storage provisioning from a single screen. Transparent Router functionality, standard in H-series switches (SN6000 and 8/20q), provides seamless, non-disruptive access to servers and storage on HP B-series and HP C-series SANs. Begin with 20 device ports for an affordable solution and add new switches for up to 120 usable device ports per stack (single manageable unit), or 500+ ports in multi-stack topologies. Included 10 Gbps stacking ports may be upgraded to 20 Gbps speed at any time, extending the solution lifespan while preserving current investments.
