Marketing Information:

Are you struggling to meet the I/O demands of hyper-scale virtualization, cloud, or growing flash-based SANs? HPE StoreFabric SN3600B Fibre Channel Switch provides Gen6 32 Gb Fibre Channel (FC) in an ultra-dense 1U format from 8-ports up to 24-ports, and is affordable for limited budgets. It is capable of replacing three generations of FC with its backward compatibility with 4, 8, and 16 Gb FC for your investment protection. Designed to build a flash-ready infrastructure, it specifically adapts to business application needs. Applications requiring more throughput and lower latency can take advantage of NVMe over FC ready support as well. SAN simplicity is achieved with a simple 3-step install process and SAN deployments with HPE 3PAR all-flash storage are automated using HPE Smart SAN for 3PAR Software. Data reliability is enhanced with forward error correction (FEC) by automatically detecting and recovering for bit errors; and HPE PowerPack+ Software maintains optimal SAN-health.


32 Gb Fibre Channel Gen6 Affordability Without Compromise in Functionality

The HPE StoreFabric SN3600B Fibre Channel Switch delivers exceptional price-performance in an entry-level Gen6 Fibre Channel (FC) switch.

Configurable with 16 Gb FC SFP+ or 32 Gb FC SFP+ optics to accommodate a customer’s budget while being fully prepared for tomorrow.

Start with 8-ports and easily scale to 24-ports with 8-port POD as business adapts to SAN growth.

Flash-ready Performance

The HPE StoreFabric SN3600B Fibre Channel Switch provides market leading Gen6 throughput and low latency in an affordable 1U form factor.

Delivers increased performance with an aggregate bandwidth of 768 Gbps for growing and dynamic workloads.

Latency for locally switched ports is reduced to 900 nanoseconds (including FEC) through the use of cut-through switching at 32 Gbps ready for latency sensitive applications.

Augment with ISL trunking to provide more effective load balancing in certain configurations.

Integrates with flash storage fabrics that utilize NVMe over Fibre Channel for latency sensitive applications and greater throughput.

Operational Simplicity

The HPE StoreFabric SN3600B Fibre Channel Switch can easily be installed and configured and simplifies SAN configuration in as easy 3-step process.

Integrates with HPE Smart SAN for 3PAR to simplify all-flash storage SAN deployments through automated SAN orchestration (SAN zoning) from hours to minutes.

Easily validate infrastructure configurations, at the physical-level, with ClearLink Diagnostics before deploying the SAN into production.

Monitor and analyze virtual machine (VM) performance using HPE VM Insight Software to quickly identify abnormal VM behaviors to maintain performance service levels.

Supports HPE PowerPack+ Software to make sure the SAN is healthy, easier to troubleshoot and operating at optimal performance.
