HPE SAN Director Switch

Today’s enterprises are dealing with challenges stemming from unprecedented growth of data, mission critical workloads, ever-increasing VM densities, and getting the most out of investments in new technologies like flash and Non Volatile Memory express (NVMe) storage. With the unprecedented speed and increasing cost-effectiveness of these platforms, data centers are rapidly transforming and are required todeliver more scale, higher availability, and better reliability. In order to meet these challenges, the storage network has become more important and must provide greater value through performance, reliability, and automation of common tasks than ever before.

As a building block of modern data centers, HPE B-series Fibre Channel SAN Director Switches are the industry’s leading SAN infrastructure solution for optimizing storage, simplifying operations, and automating SAN management tasks. With industry-leading low latency, increased bandwidth, and continuous availability organizations can have reliable access to data and applications while ensuring modern workloads run smoothly.

A modern SAN must also be self-learning, self-healing, and self-optimizing, with advanced analytics for real-time actionable insights. B-series Fibre Channel SAN Director Switches give organizations a faster, more intelligent, more resilient data network that maximizes the performance of server and storage resources as they scale to meet ever-changing business demands. In addition, HPE gives customers peace of mind and investment protection by allowing the upgrade of a Gen6 HPE SN8600B Director to a Gen 7 HPE SN8700B Director via core blade upgrades without costly rip and replace.
