Re: what is Brocade model for HP StorageWorks 8/20q FC switch?

This switch is OEM'd from Qlogic.

See the following link which says "The HP StorageWorks 8/20q FC Switch is equivalent to the Qlogic SANbox 5800 and 5802."

Well, the model number 8/20q itself has "q" in it which is identification for Qlogic OEM'd switch.

As far as switching to Qlogic is concerned, it maybe because it's cost effective and offers some useful features like " innovative Transparent Routing (TR)" etc.

The details are here

Sameer,

thanks for your infor.

since we have all brocade compatible switches here, is there equivalent brocades one to this Qlogic one? commands all seem different.

and i don't know why they just sell this one instead of brocade one.

Sameer,

thanks for being so patient with me. One more question,

Is HP still selling StorageWorks 8/24 ?
and can it be used as core/edge switch? because 8/20q can be used as core/edge switch.

I will close out the thread and add all points to you.
