Enables Data Center Consolidation and Cost Savings Through State-of-the-art Design and Performance
The Brocade 16 Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class enables data center consolidation with HPE BladeSystem c-Class enclosures through a state-of-the-art zero-footprint design while lowering cost through shared power and cooling, fewer cables and SFPs and a reduction in space.
Enables support of virtualized environments through industry leading 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel performance. Both internal and external facing ports auto-sense lower bandwidth components for flexibility and investment protection (4, 8 or 16 Gb/s for external ports and 8 or16 Gb/s for internal ports).
Enables High Density Virtualization and Deployment of I/O Intensive Applications on HPE BladeSystems
Supports port trunking of up to 8 SAN ports for a total of up to 128 Gb/s balanced throughput. Trunking of the SAN-facing ports with external Brocade or HPE B-series Switches provides a high-bandwidth solution while lowering costs through fewer SFPs and cables.
The Brocade 16 Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class offers a non-blocking architecture that supports up to 896 Gb/s of full duplex throughput.
Enables organizations to better manage data flows and meet service level agreements while maintaining optimized application performance in virtual environments with new Adaptive Networking services, including Adaptive Fabric Quality of Service, Traffic Isolation, and Ingress Rate Limiting.
Simplifies Data Center Management Through Integration with Management Platforms and Tools
Leverages existing HPE B-series management and monitoring tools.
The Brocade 16 Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class integrates with HPE Onboard Administrator for BladeSystem, HPE Systems Insight Manager, and HPE Storage Essentials.
Enables the use of industry standard interfaces to integrate management with other applications.
