Overview:

To remain competitive, IT organizations must keep pace with ever-increasing workloads without a similar increase in their budgets or resources. While virtualization has provided some relief by enabling the benefits of faster deployment and consolidation, it also tends to put additional stress on data center networks. In addition, the move toward cloud computing, which promises greater efficiency and a more service-oriented business model, means that these networks will face even greater demands.

The HP SN3000B Fibre Channel Switch meets the demands of hyper-scale, private cloud storage environments by delivering marketleading 16Gb Fibre Channel technology and capabilities that support highly virtualized environments. Designed to enable maximum flexibility and investment protection, the SN3000B Switch is configurable in 12 or 24 ports and supports 4, 8, or 16 Gbps speeds in an efficiently designed 1U package. It also provides a simplified deployment process and a point-and-click user interface-making it both powerful and easy to use. The SN3000B Switch offers low-cost access to industry-leading Storage Area Network (SAN) technology while providing "pay-as-you-grow" scalability to meet the needs of an evolving storage environment.

The SN3000B is available in two models:

  • HP SN3000B 16Gb 24-port/24-port Active Fibre Channel Switch
  • HP SN3000B 16Gb 24-port/12-port Active Fibre Channel Switch

Features and Benefits:


Flexible Fabrics

  • High Speed 16Gb optimized inter switch links (ISLs) provide twice the performance as previous generation Fibre Channel switches. The net result is there are fewer links, fewer cables, fewer ports and less power for the same performance.

High Performing

  • Operating speeds of 16, 8, and 4 Gb/s offer a wide range of performance for flexibility in connectivity options and investment protection.

Operational Simplicity

  • Diagnostic Ports (D_Ports) are a new port type that enable administrators to identify and isolate optics and cable problems, reducing fabric deployment and diagnostic times. Organizations also can use D_Ports to run a variety of tests for ports, SFPs, and cables for faults, latency, and distance.
  • SAN Network Advisor, offered as an option, provides comprehensive management of data center SAN fabrics, including configuration, monitoring, diagnostics, best-practices validation, and management of B-series Directors, Switches, and Host Bus Adapters (HBAs).

Cloud Optimized Performance

  • Provides aggregate 768Gb full-duplex throughput and any eight ports can be trunked for 128Gb Inter-Switch Links (ISLs). Exchange-based Dynamic Path Selection (DPS) optimizes fabric-wide performance and load balancing by automatically routing data to the most efficient available path.
