Overview


The HP 8/24 SAN Switch delivers affordable and flexible 8 Gb/s connectivity and can be incorporated into an extensive core fabric or placed
as an edge switch for SAN environments. The 8/24 SAN Switch is ideal for entry and SMB customers requiring a simple, yet flexible
networked storage connectivity solution that will meet evolving requirements. The 8/24 SAN Switch provides the needed connectivity and
flexibility at a price point that is affordable, while delivering industry-leading performance for long-term investment protection. It is a
solution that is easy to deploy and requires little management time, reducing operational costs.

The 8/24 Base SAN Switch delivers sixteen high performance auto Sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel ports. With powerful yet
flexible capabilities-such as Ports On Demand scalability to 24 ports in an 8-port increment-the 8/24 SAN Switch enables organizations to
start small and grow their storage networks in a non-disruptive manner. A fully populated 8/24 SAN Switch with 24 enabled ports provides
384 Gb switching (8 Gb full duplex) capacity for un-congested sustained, 8 Gb full duplex throughput. In addition, organizations can
choose to initially deploy 4 Gbit/sec SFPs and upgrade to 8 Gbit/sec SFP+ at a later date when necessary.

The 8/24 SAN Switch with 24 enabled ports may be deployed as a full-fabric switch or in Access Gateway mode, which provides connectivity
into any SAN (the default mode setting is a switch). Access Gateway mode utilizes N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) switch standards to
present Fibre Channel connections as logical devices to SAN fabrics. Attaching through NPIV-enabled switches and directors, the 8/24 SAN
Switch with 24 enabled ports in Access Gateway mode can connect to Brocade, McDATA, Cisco, or other SAN fabrics. Key benefits of Access
Gateway mode include:

      Improved scalability for large or rapidly growing server and virtual server environments
      Simplified management through the reduction of domains and management tasks
      Fabric interoperability for mixed-vendor SAN configurations that require full functionality

An optional enhanced Power Pack+ software bundle can be purchased separately and includes Fabric Vision, Fabric Watch, ISL Trunking,
Extended Fabric and Advanced Performance Monitor. The software bundle provides the SAN administrator with the necessary tools to
proactively monitor the health and performance thresholds of the network, while also ensuring the highest levels of security, scalability
and manageability. Power Pack+ software enables infrastructure management through a single-pane-of-glass.

Software Components
Frame Filtering              An ASIC based capability in the B-series family of switches that enables new applications and features. The
                             switch now has the ability to "view" the first 64 bytes of the Fibre Channel frame. At this time, Frame Filtering
                             enables advanced capabilities such as Advanced Zoning and Advanced Performance Monitoring.


Advanced Zoning              In the 8 Gb generation of switches, WWN Zoning and Access Control are enforced by hardware that provides
                             the same simple administration previously enforced only with software. Administrators can organize a
                             physical fabric into logical groups and prevent unauthorized access by devices outside the Zone.

QuickSpecs                                                                                                   HP 8/24 SAN Switch

Product Highlights
Web Tools             Enables organizations to monitor and manage single Fibre Channel switches and small SAN fabrics. Tasks can
                      be performed through a Java-capable Web browser from a standard laptop, desktop PC or workstation from
                      any location within the enterprise.


EGM                   Enhanced Group Management (EGM) is a FOS license that is included with all B-Series switches and enables
                      multi-switch operations. It helps automate operations across multiple switches to save time and streamline
                      repetitive operations, which are typically prone to error. EGM drives consistency across fabrics, while
                      minimizing the risk associated with potential downtime due to configuration mismatches. EGM provides
                      streamlined troubleshooting for more effective fabric monitoring and diagnosis.

                      SAN Network Advisor Professional, Professional Plus, and Enterprise enable EGM functionality. Customers
                      have EGM functionality enabled within the hardware product and need only to make the decision around
                      which management application is right for them - SAN Network Advisor Professional, Professional Plus, or
                      Enterprise.


Adaptive Networking   Adaptive Networking (AN) is a family of technologies which allow flexible control of traffic movement within
                      the fabric which deliver application aware management of fabric resources. Applications may be used with
                      multiple protocols and multiple classes of service. It includes the following features:

                      Ingress Rate Limiting:

                      Allows the ingress bandwidth of a port to be throttled to a rate lower than negotiated with the SAN node. This
                      could be very useful for enterprises offering stepped levels of service and enforcing SLAs.

                      Quality of Service (QoS):

                      Enables zones with high, medium, and low priorities within a fabric on a zone by zone basis. This can be very
                      useful for prioritizing array replication over MANs and WANs over less critical traffic.

                      Traffic Isolation Zones:

                      Defines paths through a fabric for some or all nodes. Failover allows a non-preferred path to be used if the
                      preferred fails. TIZs use failover by default but it can be disabled if traffic should stop if a preferred path fails.
                      TIZ can be used to manually map out traffic flows within a fabric based on application, priority, and topology.


Server Application    Server Application Optimization (SAO) improves overall application performance for physical servers and
                      virtual machines. SAO, when deployed with B-Series Fibre Channel HBAs, extends B-Series Adaptive
Optimization
                      Networking from the B-series SAN fabric to the server infrastructure. This delivers application-level, fine-
                      grain Quality of Service (QoS) management to the HBAs and related server applications.

                      Solution Requirements:

                            SAO requires B-series HBA installed in the server

                             Advanced Performance Monitoring
                             Fabric Watch
                             Extended Fabric


Fabric Vision          Fabric Vision offers innovative diagnostic, monitoring and management capabilities to help accelerate new
                       application deployments, address SAN problems before they impact operations and reduce operational
                       costs. It Includes

                             Monitoring and Alerting Policy Suite: A policy-based monitoring tool with pre-built rules and
                             automation that simplifies fabric-wide threshold configuration and monitoring.
                             Flow Vision: A comprehensive tool that enables administrators to identify, monitor, and analyze
                             specific application data flows without using taps to ensure optimized performance.
                             Health and performance dashboard: A single customizable screen displayed in HP SAN Network
                             Advisor that contains all critical SAN information for convenient review and analysis.

                       Fabric Vision will be included by default in all HP StoreFabric B-series Fibre Channel switches and Directors
                       bundled with Power Pack+ (with FOS 7.2.0a and later). In all other cases, Fabric Vision can be enabled on HP
                       StoreFabric B-series Fibre Channel switches and Directors in any one of the following ways

                             Application of the Fabric Vision LTU (FOS 7.2.0a and later)
                             Application of the Power Pack+ LTU (FOS 7.2.0a and later)
                             Upgrading existing Switch/Director loaded with Power Pack+ to FOS 7.2.0a or later
                             Upgrading existing Switch/Director loaded with both Advanced Performance Monitor (APM) and Fabric
                             Watch (FW) licenses to FOS 7.2.0a or later


ISL Trunking           For high performance enhanced Trunking, this optional license logically groups up to eight E-ports to provide
                       a high bandwidth trunk between two switches. Each 8Gb switch needs its own license. The switch operating
                       system views the trunk as a single, high bandwidth resource (up to 64 Gb) when routing connections between
                       switches. Connections are load-balanced across the individual links, which comprise the logical trunk group.


Advanced Performance   This enabling technology helps administrators monitor and watch specific fabric metrics -- from a SID
                       (Source ID) to a DID (Destination ID) -- so they can fine-tune and scale the fabric more efficiently. Plus,
Monitor
                       Advanced Performance Monitoring includes the ability for early warning detection of hot spots within the
                       fabric, a powerful tool for maintaining overall balanced performance.

                       Top Talkers is a component of Advanced Performance Monitoring and tracks the top traffic flows for hosts
                       and targets for a switch port or a switch. Top Talkers can help identify the ports that need certain Quality of
                       Service (QoS) attributes or it can help determine portions of the physical topology that need reconfiguration.


Fabric Watch           Fabric Watch enables each switch to monitor the SAN for potential faults-and automatically alert network
                       managers to problems before they become failures. Fabric Watch tracks a variety of SAN fabric elements,
                       events, and counters. Monitoring fabric-wide events, ports, SFPs, and environmental parameters permits
                       early fault detection and isolation as well as performance measurement. Each switch in the SAN needs its
                       own Fabric Watch license.

Product Highlights
Extended Fabric       Extends all of the scalability, reliability, and performance benefits of Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks
                      (SANs) beyond the native 10 km distance specified by the Fibre Channel standard.


SAN Network Advisor   HP SAN Network Advisor Professional is a management application available at no-charge and comes with B-
                      series SAN Switches and:
Professional

                            Allows management of a single Fabric OS (FOS) fabric (up to a 1,000 switch ports) at a time
                            Performs group switch management beyond the scope of Web Tools
                            Does not offer management of the SN8000B 8-Slot or DC SAN Backbone Directors

                      It is targeted for SMB customers that use FOS based SAN fabrics and require a management solution for
                      smaller SANs based on a single fabric.

                      SMB customers that initially start off with SAN Network Advisor Professional and have a small SAN
                      environment may over time feel the need for an enterprise-class product (SAN Network Advisor Enterprise)
                      as their environments start to grow in size and complexity, and as they start to uptake more enterprise-class
                      functionality (such as Fibre Channel Routing, FCIP, etc.). A non-disruptive upgrade path is available from SAN
                      Network Advisor Professional to SAN Network Advisor Enterprise.


SAN Network Advisor   HP SAN Network Advisor Enterprise and Professional+ are the enterprise-class products that support FOS
                      products as well as FOS and M-EOS products together. SAN Network Advisor Enterprise provides complete
Enterprise and
                      SN8000B 8-Slot Director and DC SAN Backbone Director management including enterprise-class
Professional+
                      features/environments such as FICON, Fibre Channel Routing, FCIP, adaptive networking, etc while HP SAN
                      Network Advisor Professional+ provides the same feature set except for support for the SN8000B 8-Slot
                      Director, DC SAN Backbone Director, and FICON.

                      HP SAN Network Advisor Enterprise delivers unprecedented scalability, up to 24 fabrics and 9,000 switch
                      ports, while HP SAN Network Advisor Professional+ scales to 4 SAN Fabrics and 2560 switch ports. To
                      accommodate growth, there is an upgrade available to SAN Network Advisor Enterprise from SAN Network
                      Advisor Professional Plus.

                      Both offerings provide brand-new features including Adaptive Networking features for quality of service,
                      ingress rate limiting and traffic isolation zones.
