HP StorageWorks 4/16 SAN Switch and 4/16 SAN Switch
Power Pack Family
Overview
The new HP StorageWorks 4/16 SAN Switch and 4/16 SAN Switch Power Pack delivers affordable and flexible 4 Gb/s connectivity
for a storage area networks (SANs). The new interconnects can be incorporated into an extensive core fabric or placed at the edge.
Both 4/16 SAN Switch variants scale to full SAN configurations as defined by the SAN Design Guide. The 4/16 SAN Switch includes
web management tools and hardware and software enforced zoning.
The new switches deliver sixteen high performance auto Sensing 1, 2, and 4 Gb/s Fibre Channel ports. In addition, the 4/16 SAN
Switch and the 4/16 SAN Switch Power Pack are fully non-blocking and provide 128 Gb switching (4 Gb full duplex) capacity for
un-congested sustained, 4 Gb full duplex throughput. Small-form-factor-pluggable optical transceivers (SFPs) must be ordered
separately. All models include one power supply.
The 4/16 Power Pack includes the 4/16 SAN Switch plus a value added software package. The optional Power Pack software
bundle can be purchased separately and includes Fabric Watch, ISL Trunking, Extended Fabric and Advanced Performance Monitor.
The software bundle provides the SAN administrator with the necessary tools to monitor the health and performance of the network,
while also ensuring the highest levels of security, scalability and manageability. Power Pack software provides the foundation for
integration into HP OpenView Storage Area Manager (SAM), enabling infrastructure management through a single-pane-of-glass.

Software Components
Frame Filtering
An ASIC based capability in the B-series family of switches that enables new applications and features.
The switch now has the ability to "view" the first 64 bytes of the Fibre Channel frame. At this time, Frame
Filtering enables advanced capabilities such as Advanced Zoning and Advanced Performance
Monitoring.
Advanced Zoning
In the 4 Gb generation of switches, WWN Zoning and Access Control are enforced by hardware that
provides the same simple administration previously enforced only with software. Administrators can
organize a physical fabric into logical groups and prevent unauthorized access by devices outside the
Zone.
WebTools
Enables organizations to monitor and manage single Fibre Channel switches and small SAN fabrics.
Tasks can be performed through a Java-capable Web browser from a standard laptop, desktop PC or
workstation from any location within the enterprise.

Software Components, Optional
Power Pack Software
Bundle
Includes bundled license for:
ISL Trunking
Advanced Performance Monitoring
Fabric Watch
Extended Fabric
ISL Trunking
For high performance enhanced Trunking, this optional license logically groups up to four E-ports to
provide a high bandwidth trunk between two switches. Each 4Gb switch needs its own license. The switch
operating system views the trunk as a single, high bandwidth resource (up to 32 Gb) when routing
connections between switches. Connections are load-balanced across the individual links, which
comprise the logical trunk group. Each 16-port switch can have a total of four separate 4-port Trunk
groups.
Advanced Performance
Monitor
This enabling technology helps administrators monitor and watch specific fabric metrics from a SID
(Source ID) to a DID (Destination ID), so they can fine-tune and scale the fabric more efficiently. Plus,
Advanced Performance Monitoring includes the ability for early warning detection of hot spots within the
fabric, a powerful tool for maintaining overall balanced performance.
Fabric Watch
Fabric Watch enables each switch to monitor the SAN for potential faults-and automatically alert network
managers to problems before they become failures. Fabric Watch tracks a variety of SAN fabric
elements, events, and counters. Monitoring fabric-wide events, ports, SFPs, and environmental
parameters permits early fault detection and isolation as well as performance measurement. Each switch
in the SAN needs its own Fabric Watch license.
Extended Fabric
Extends all of the scalability, reliability, and performance benefits of Fibre Channel Storage Area
Networks (SANs) beyond the native 10 km distance specified by the Fibre Channel standard.
Fabric Manager
Fabric Manager is a highly scalable, Java-based application that manages multiple switches and
multiple fabrics in real time, helping SAN administrators with SAN configuration, monitoring, dynamic
provisioning, and daily management. SAN administrators gain rapid access to critical SAN information
across multiple personality fabrics.
Secure Fabric OS
Secure Fabric OS™ is a comprehensive security solution for SAN fabrics, providing policy-based security
protection for more predictable change management, assured configuration integrity and reduced risk of
downtime. Secure Fabric OS protects the network by using the strongest, enterprise-class security
methods available, including digital certificates and digital signatures, multiple levels of password
protection, strong password encryption and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)-based authentication, and
128-bit encryption of the switch's private key used for digital signatures. With its flexible design, Secure
Fabric OS enables organizations to customize SAN security to meet specific policy requirements. In
addition, Secure Fabric OS works in conjunction with Advanced Zoning to further secure access to the
SAN, simplify storage management, and reduce provisioning time.
