Product Information

Full Description

Details

The HP 8/24 SAN switch addresses the needs of SMB organizations as well as large enterprises by functioning as a standalone core switch or as lower-cost edge switch in large core-to-edge tiered storage networks. The 8/24 SAN switches provides unprecedented investment protection. Auto-sensing ports that support backward compatibility with 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gbit/sec devices significantly reduce deployment complexity and costs, while providing compatibility with installed devices. Organizations that do not require 8 Gbit/sec interfaces can populate the new switches with 4 Gbit/sec SFPs, while preserving their ability to easily upgrade to 8 Gbit/sec SFPs in the future. 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 NPIV switch standards to present Fibre Channel connections as logical devices to SAN fabrics.

  • High Performance
  • High Scalability
  • Improved TCO
  • Investment Protection
  • High Performance
    Includes simultaneous wire-speed support for all ports to provide a high-performance system with aggregate bandwidth of up to 384 Gbit/sec full duplex. Provides the highest performance available, with complete backward and forward investment protection. Simplifies SAN management, negating the need to map application performance requirements to port speeds.
  • High Scalability
    Comes with 16 enabled ports and supports "pay-as-you-grow" scalability to 24 enabled ports. Provides seamless server connectivity to multi-vendor fabric environments, and allows a great number of servers to connect to a SAN fabric without increasing switch domain count. Allows up to eight ports (at 2, 4, or 8 Gbit/sec speeds) between a pair of switches to be combined to form a single logical ISL with a speed of up to 64 Gbit/sec (128 Gbit/sec full duplex) for optimal bandwidth utilization and load balancing.
  • Improved TCO
    Optimizes fabric-wide performance and load balancing by automatically routing data to all available paths in the fabric. Remove/avoid performance bottlenecks in high-density virtualized server environments. Advanced fabric services to optimize SAN performance and resource utilization.
  • Investment Protection
    Delivers low latency, power efficiency, and high reliability while providing a highly scalable and flexible platform for advanced fabric services.

  • Products & pricing

    At King of Servers we carry out daily price checks to maintain an up to date view on our pricing in relation to our online competitors. As well as monitoring, our website reacts to fluctuating prices automatically to ensure our products are always priced as keenly as possible across our entire catalogue.

    Since it’s impossible to keep tabs on everyone, we offer a price match challenge. If you find a better price elsewhere, we'll do our very best to match it.

  • What do your stock conditions mean?

    As well as new products, we also sell open box, refurbished & HP Renew products. All of our products are backed by a warranty.

    Open box products are brand new, unused items for which the outer packaging has either been opened or damaged. Open box products are covered by the full manufacturer warranty.

    Products we classify as refurbished have been checked and tested to ensure they are fit for sale and come from a variety of sources.

    Refurbished products might include:

    • Brand new products that we can’t sell as ‘new’ because the packaging has been been lost or replaced.
    • Products returned to us that have been tested and deemed fit for resale.
    • Hardware components our engineers have retrieved from system builds (e.g. server parts). 

    HP Renew products have been remanufactured to the same standard as new HP products and are backed by the original HP warranty. In other words, there is no difference between the warranty offered for a new HP product and the equivalent HP Renew product.

  • Is your stock grey or sourced outside of approved channels?

    Categorically no! All our  stock is ethically sourced within the EU and backed by warranty. Hewlett Packard products sold as new are retail sealed units covered by the full manufacturer warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which you can validate online to confirm warranty cover ahead of purchase.

  • How are your prices so low?

    At King of Servers we conduct regular price checks to maintain an up to date view on our pricing in relation to our online competitors. We aim to ensure our products are always priced as keenly as possible across our entire catalogue.

    Since it’s impossible to keep tabs on everyone, we offer a Price Match Challenge . If you find a better price elsewhere, we'll do our very best to match it.

    We're not as big as some of our competitors so we have to try harder to win your business and this means offering better prices and better service levels. We’re also fortunate to have smaller overheads than some of our larger competitors and this, coupled with our buying power allows us to secure volume related discounts from our established global network of suppliers. These savings are ultimately reflected in the prices of our products.

    Cheaper doesn't always mean better though, read our blog and watch out for the common pitfalls
