Marketing Information: Does your data center need increased switch scalability and performance?

The HPE C-series SN8500C Director Switches elevate the standard for director-class switches. Providing industry-leading availability, scalability, security, and management, it allows businesses to deploy higher-performance SANs, with lower TCO. Layering a rich set of intelligent features onto a highperformance, protocol-independent switch fabric, the switch director addresses the stringent requirements of large data center storage environments. Future ready performance with up to 24 Tb/s of Fibre Channel (FC) system bandwidth and 384 (8- Slot) or 192 (4-Slot) 4/8/16/32 Gb/s, 10 Gb/s full line rate FC ports or 384 (8-Slot) or 192 (4-Slot) 10GbE FCoE ports in a single chassis or up to 1152 (8-slot) or 768 (4-slot) FC ports in a single rack. Ready for integration of future high-speed standards, providing continued investment protection.

FEATURES

Industry-leading Scalability

The HPE C-series SN8500C Director Switch are designed for deployment in largescale data center storage networks to deliver enterprise cloud capabilities while supporting business transformation.

The HPE C-series SN8500C Director Switch provide up to 24 terabits per second (Tb/s) of Fibre Channel (FC) system bandwidth and 384 (8 slots) or 192 (4 slots) 4/8/16/32 Gb/s, 10 Gb/s full line rate FC ports or 384 (8 slots) or 192 (4 slots) 10 GbE FCoE ports in a single chassis.

Existing 16 Gbps customers can transparently move to 32 Gbps speeds without the need for a major equipment upgrade as the 48-port 32 Gbps Fibre Channel Switching module can easily be inserted into existing HPE C-series SN8500C Directors.

Outstanding SAN Performance

The HPE C-series SN8500C Director Switch enables seamless deployment of unified fabrics while delivering high-performance Fibre Channel connectivity, which achieves low total cost of ownership (TCO).

Provides support for 16/32 Gb/s Fibre Channel and 1.5 Tb/s throughput per slot.

Provides a 16/32 Gb/s line-rate, non-blocking, with predictable performance across all traffic conditions for every port in the chassis.

Delivers full-duplex aggregate performance of 1536 Gbps, making it well suited for high-speed 32 Gbps storage subsystems, 32 Gbps Inter-Switch Links (ISLs), highperformance virtualized servers, and all-flash and NVMe arrays.

Supports 10 GbE FCoE for unified storage and data networking.

High Availability

The HPE C-series SN8500C Director Switch offers fully redundant components, including fabric cards, supervisors, and power supplies.

The HPE C-series SN8500C Director Switch provides grid redundancy on the power supply and 1+1 redundant supervisors.

With the HPE C-series SN8500C Director Switch, users can add additional Fabric-1 Crossbar switching modules to enable N+1 fabric redundancy with no loss of performance.

Intelligent Network Features

The HPE C-series SN8500C Director Switch offer VSAN technology, access control lists (ACLs) for hardware-based intelligent frame processing, and fabric wide quality of service (QoS) enable migration from SAN islands to enterprise wide storage networks.

The HPE C-series SN8500C Director Switch combines non-disruptive software upgrades, stateful process restart and failover, and full redundancy of all major components for best-in class.
