To remain competitive, IT organizations must keep pace with ever-increasing workloads without a similar increase in their budgets or resources. While virtualization has provided some relief by enabling the benefits of faster deployment and consolidation, it also tends to put additional stress on data center networks. In addition, the move toward cloud computing, which promises greater efficiency and a more service-oriented business model, means that these networks will face even greater demands.

The HP StoreFabric SN6500B fiber channel switch meets the demands of hyper-scale, private cloud storage environments by delivering market-leading 16 Gb fiber channel technology and capabilities that support highly virtualized environments. Designed to enable maximum flexibility and investment protection, the SN6500B switch is configurable in 48 ports and supports 16 Gbps speeds in an efficiently designed 2U package. It also provides a simplified deployment process and a point-and-click user interface-making it both powerful and easy to use. The SN6500B switch is ideal for medium- to large-sized organizations that need a scalable, high-availability solution that will facilitate consolidation and the flexibility to meet rapidly evolving storage requirements.
