Are you looking for high-performance Fibre Channel products for the modern SAN? Learn why HPE StoreFabric C-series 32Gb FC Switches, perfectly paired with 3PAR all-flash storage, are ideal for hyperscale virtualization and AI workloads

HPE StoreFabric_blog.jpgIn today’s mission-critical storage environment, lower latency, higher performance, and greater consistency are very vital in meeting the growing business demands. The amount of data stored inside the data centers are also growing exponentially hence it requires more IO capacity to accommodate the massive amounts of data, applications and workloads.

At the same time, customers are expecting the data to be available and accessible from anywhere, at any time. To meet these dynamic demands, organizations are moving to virtual machine-based deployments for a much faster application turnaround and to help scale to support tens of thousands of users.

More capable next-gen servers. Increased server virtualization. Adoption of flash-based storage and emerging technologies like NVMe developments. All are new developments that could cause your existing networking infrastructure to bottleneck. To help meet that need, meet the next-generation storage networking C-series products with HPE StoreFabric 32Gb FC SAN Switch. These next-gen switches provide greater performance with 32 Gbps links, improved manageability, more granular insights and diagnostics, plus long-term investment protection and lower cost of ownership.

NEW now: HPE StoreFabric C-series SN6620C 32Gb FC Switch

The HPE StoreFabric SN6620C Fibre Channel Switch is the next generation 48-port 32 Gbps Fibre Channel Switch providing high-speed Fibre Channel connectivity from the server rack to the SAN core. It empowers small, midsize, and large enterprises that are rapidly deploying cloud-scale applications using extremely dense virtualized servers, providing the dual benefits of greater bandwidth and consolidation all in a compact one-rack-unit (1RU) form factor. The switch offers state-of-art analytics and telemetry capability built into its next generation ASIC platform. For ultimate flexibility, the HPE StoreFabric SN6620C Switch scales from 24 to 48 ports. Additionally, investing in this switch for the lower-speed (8- or 16-Gbps) server rack gives you the option to upgrade to 32-Gbps server connectivity in the future.

Introduced last July: HPE StoreFabric C-series SN6610C 32Gb FC Switch

The SN6610C is the 32-port 32Gbps Fibre Channel Switch which helps you transition to next-generation storage networks with unique features designed to maximize availability, performance and resiliency. It lowers costs by reducing power consumption and increases visibility with line-rate monitoring for traffic analytics. Expandable from 8 to 32 ports, it is ideal for small-departmental SANs (with VSANs for separation), use as a TOR switch, or as a native FC SAN extension.

With HPE 3PAR all-flash storage and HPE StoreFabric C-series SN6610C and SN6620C multilayer switches, you can utilize 32 Gigabit Fibre Channel technology and capabilities end-to-end to meet the demands of your most challenging workloads—such as hyperscale virtualization, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. The HPE StoreFabric C-series SN6610C and SN6620C 32Gb FC Switch are available immediately for ordering. Please contact your local HPE account team for detailed pricing information.
