Are you looking for a higher performance embedded Fibre Channel switch option for your HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosure? The Brocade 16Gb SAN Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class represents the next generation of embedded Fibre Channel switches with 16 Gb/s performance. It hot-plugs into the back of the HP BladeSystem c-Class Enclosure and its integrated design frees up rack space, enables shared power and cooling, and reduces cabling and small form-factor pluggables. Enhanced trunking support with external switches provides higher bandwidth to enable demanding applications and high density server virtualization. In addition, the 16 or 28 auto-sensing ports support lower bandwidth components for investment protection and an upgrade license enables customers to 'pay as they grow'. The Brocade 16Gb SAN Switch saves space and cost, simplifies the SAN environment, enables easier deployment and management and delivers the performance required for higher throughput applications. The Brocade 16 Gb SAN Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class enables data centre consolidation with HP 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 or 16 Gb/s for internal ports).
