HP SN6000C 8Gb 16-port Fibre Channel Switch

HP SN6000C 8Gb 16-port Fibre Channel Switch

Price and buy

The HP SN6000C Fibre Channel Switch is a high-performance, flexible, cost-effective platform providing high-density, 8 Gb/s ports for storage networking deployments in small, medium-sized, and large enterprise environments. The SN6000C offers outstanding value by providing high-availability, security, and ease of use at a cost-effective price in a compact one-rack-unit (1RU) form factor. With the flexibility to expand from 16 to 48 ports in 8-port increments, the SN6000C offers the densities required to scale from an entry-level departmental switch to top-of-the-rack switch to edge connectivity in enterprise SANs. The SN6000C delivers a non-blocking architecture, with all 48 1/2/4/8-Gb/s ports operating at line rate concurrently. The SN6000C is powered by NX-OS Software and is compatible with HP SN8000C and SN8500C Multilayer Directors and C-series MDS 9100 and 9200 Series Multilayer Fabric Switches, providing transparent, end-to-end service in core-edge deployments.
What's new
High Performance with Exceptional Flexibility
With 8 Gb/s of dedicated bandwidth for each port and aggregate platform bandwidth of 384 Gb/s, the HP SN6000C Fibre Channel Switch is designed to meet the performance and scalability requirements of the most demanding environments.
Compatible with HP SN8000C and SN8500C Multilayer Directors and MDS 9100 and 9200 Series Fabric Switches with up to 48 autosensing Fibre Channel ports capable of speeds of 8, 4, 2, and 1 Gb/s.
Flexibility to "pay as you grow" by scaling the HP SN6000C FC Switch on site by enabling additional ports by adding On-Demand Port Activation licenses.
Intelligent Storage Networking Services at a Cost-effective Price
Supports innovative features such as VSANs, PortChannels, quality of service (QoS), SAN security, SAN management, hardware-enforced zoning, and In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) at no additional cost to the user.
VSAN technology provides a cost-effective way to consolidate resources while providing high resiliency to potential fabric disruptions. It extends server virtualization to the SAN and storage by creating hardware-based isolated environments within a single physical SAN fabric.
Advanced traffic management capabilities integrated into the SN6000C simplify deployment and optimization of core-edge fabrics.
NPIV and NPV technology provides independent management for each virtual machine and scaling of SANs without reaching Fibre Channel domain ID limits. FlexAttach feature also enables transparent server deployment and movement without SAN reconfiguration.
High Availability Platform
The HP SN6000C FC Switch is designed for mission-critical environments in which downtime is unacceptable.
Offers non-disruptive software upgrades, dual hot-swappable power supplies (with integrated fans for redundancy), hot-swappable fans, VSANs for fault isolation, PortChannels for Inter-Switch Link (ISL) resiliency, and F-port trunking for resiliency on uplinks from a SN6000C operating in NPV mode.
Simplified Management
Supports SAN plug-and-play capability as well as built-in storage network management, with all features available through a command-line interface (CLI) or the Cisco Data Center Network Manager for simplified storage management.
Cisco Data Center Network Manager, available with the SN6000C provides a centralized management tool with task-based wizards that simplifies management of a standalone switch or multiple switches and fabrics at no additional cost.
Common platform architecture and the use of MDS 9000 NX-OS Software intelligent storage networking services across all MDS 9000 Family switches reduce ongoing operating expenses by providing a consistent set of provisioning, management, and diagnostic capabilities.
