The Brocade 4Gb SAN Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem delivers an easy to manage Fibre Channel embedded switch solution with 4 Gbps performance to HP c-Class BladeSystem customers.
Agility: Integrated 4Gb Auto-sensing SAN connectivity: Employs high speed technology for storage networking. Trunking of the SAN facing ports and external Brocade or HP StorageWorks B-series switches provides a high bandwidth solution. External facing ports auto-sense lower bandwidth components for flexibility and investment protection (4Gb, 2Gb or 1Gb).
Fabric interoperability and scalability: Employs N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV), an ANSI T11 standard, to enable interoperability with any SAN fabric and eliminate domain considerations while improving SAN scalability
Broad range of management tools: Integrates with HP Onboard Administrator for BladeSystem, HP Systems Insight Manager, and HP Storage Essentials and leverages HP B-series SAN Switch management and monitoring tools. It also provides interfaces for other SAN management applications, and is SMI compliant.
