The HP StorageWorks 8/40 SAN Switch is ideal for organizations requiring a flexible solution that is forward and backward compatible and will meet rapidly evolving storage requirements, either as a small building-block"" switch for a departmental fabric or as a high-performance edge switch in larger core-to-edge SAN configurations. The 8/40 SAN Switch is designed for rapidly growing storage requirements in mission-critical environments - combining 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gbit/sec. Fiber Channel technology in configurations of 24, 32, or 40 ports. A fully populated 8/40 SAN Switch with 40 ports enabled provides an aggregate bandwidth of 680 Gbit/sec. Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking can supply up to 64 Gbit/sec. of balanced data throughput to reduce congestion and increase bandwidth. The 8/40 SAN Switch also enables organizations to use 4 Gbit/sec. SFPs and upgrade to 8 Gbit/sec. SFPs when required. The 8/40 SAN Switch provides a reliable foundation for disaster recovery and business continuance by employing enterprise-class availability features such as hot-swappable, redundant, and integrated fan and power supply assemblies. Moreover, hot code load and activation help maximize application uptime with faster system upgrades and maintenance to reduce the dependency on scheduled outages.
