That would depend on the number and type of disks, not on the SAN links or switches.

Although the embeded switch has 8 Gbps ports, the ports on the EVA controllers work at 4 Gbps. You can send up to 400 MB/s through each port, so assuming no other limit, you could send the EVA 6 TB in 1 hour.

But that's going to be impossible to write to the disks. The limit are always the disk drives.
