Key Features

Increase Performance for Application and Solid State Storage Architectures

The HPE B-series SN6600B Fibre Channel Switch delivers increased performance through a combination of improved throughput and low latency across 32Gb and 128Gb links in hyper-scale virtualization, large cloud infrastructures, and growing flash-based storage environments.

The onboard ASIC provides up to 566 million frames switched per second and up to 100 million IOPS to meet the demands of flash-based storage workloads.

Port-to-port latency is reduced to 700 nanoseconds using cut-through switching at 32Gb.

With 48 SFP+ ports and 4 QSFP ports, each providing four 32Gb connections, it can scale up to 64 device ports for an aggregate throughput of 2Tb.

Ultra-dense and Highly Scalable

The HPE B-series SN6600B Fibre Channel Switch scales up to 64 Fibre Channel ports in an efficiently designed 1U form factor, delivering increased port density and space utilization for simplified scalability.

Each of the 48 SFP+ ports supports 4, 8, 10, 16, and 32Gb FC speeds, while each of the 4 QSFP ports is capable of supporting 128Gb.

Provides flexibility to utilize high-speed 32Gb as well as 16Gb optics on demand to meet growing data center needs and provide backward compatibility to older infrastructures.

Simplified Management with Deep Analytical Insights

HPE B-series SN6600B Fibre Channel Switch combines HPE Power Pack+ software that helps simplify monitoring, improve operational stability, and dramatically reduce costs.

Proactively and non-intrusively monitor storage device IO providing deep insight into problems and improved service level agreements (SLA).

Gain comprehensive visibility into the fabric using browser-accessible dashboards with drill-down capabilities.

Building Block for Virtualized, Private Cloud Storage

The HPE B-series SN6600B Fibre Channel Switch supports multitenancy in cloud environments reducing the number of switches required.

Provides efficient link utilization with up to 64Gb of in-flight data compression over inter-switch links (ISLs).

Internal fault-tolerant and enterprise-class reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features help reduce downtime to support mission-critical cloud environments.
