The HP StorageWorks 4/16 SAN Switch and 4/16 SAN Switch Power Pack offer 4Gb connectivity for entry-level storage area networks (SAN), and the ability to grow to a core-to-edge infrastructure. The simplicity and ease-of-use advantages of these switches help increase administrator productivity and lower the cost of management. Both switches deliver sixteen high performance Auto Sensing 1, 2, and 4Gb/s Fibre Channel ports. In addition, the 4/16 SAN switch and 4/16 SAN Switch Power Pack are fully non-blocking and provide 128Gb end-to-end switching (4Gb full duplex) bandwidth. Both 4/16 models provide full SAN scaling capabilities as defined in the SAN Design Guide. Both are ideal for new and existing SAN installations. The 4/16 SAN Switch Power Pack provides the SAN administrator with the necessary tools to monitor the health and performance of the network, while also ensuring the highest levels of security, scalability and manageability. Power Pack software features are available pre-configured on the switch or as an upgrade to existing switches.
