What is Storage Services Bundling?
The Storage Services Bundling takes the existing storage products along with the existing services and creates bundles of storage hardware/software and
appropriate services. The increased level of support provides for a higher level of storage system availability for the customer.
KEY FEATURES
Entry Level Storage Area Network (SAN) switch fabric for Compaq Modular Array 8000, Enterprise Modular Array 12000, Enterprise Modular
Array 16000, Enterprise Virtual Array, and MSA1000 storage systems and Compaq’s Enterprise Backup Solution
The Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8-EL delivers the same robust functionality found in Compaq's 8-port SAN switch in a new, cost reduced, entry- level
package. Featuring seven fixed media, short-wave, optical transceivers and one removable GBIC-based port in a sealed 1U high chassis, the Fibre
Channel SAN Switch 8-EL is an excellent choice for connecting edge devices to a larger SAN fabric or for constructing low cost full fabric SANs. In its
base configuration, any one port can be configured as a switch to switch (E-port) connection for seamlessly integrating with other Fibre Channel SAN
switches. Multiple switch to switch (E-port) connections can be enabled on the SAN Switch 8-EL with the addition of the Multiple E-port Connectivity
Option.
Except for the QuickLoop™ for HP-UX software and single E-port connectivity, each Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8-EL ships with the same value-added
software bundle and functionality that are included with every Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8 or SAN Switch 16 which consists of:
•
Fabric Operating System software
•
Web-Based Management Tools
•
Zoning software
•
StorageWorks™ Command Console by Compaq
Other standard features of the SAN Switch 8-EL include:
•
Eight 1 Gb/s non-blocking Fibre Channel ports for high data throughput. Seven of these ports contain integrated, non-removable, short-wave optical
transceivers that support distances up to 500 meters. One port is configured to accept an optional, removable GBIC (Gigabit Interface Converter)
transceiver.
•
10-km link distance support for switch-to-switch connections via use of optional long-wave GBIC.
•
Dynamic path rerouting in the event of a link failure.
Differences between Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8 and Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8-EL are:
•
Any or all of the 8 ports on a Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8 can be used for switch to switch connections (E-Ports) for cascading switches. Only one
of the 8 ports on the Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8-EL is enabled for switch to switch (E-Port) connectivity. All 8 ports of the SAN Switch 8-EL can be
enabled as E-ports with the Multiple E-port Connectivity software option.
•
The Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8 includes QuickLoop for HP-UX software for connecting HP-UX servers to a SAN switch through FCAL emulation.
The Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8-EL software bundle does not include QuickLoop for HP-UX software.
•
The Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8 has eight removable GBIC based transceiver ports. GBIC's are ordered separately and support either 500 meter
(short wave) or 10 kilometer (long wave) distances. The Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8-EL has seven integrated short wave optical transceivers that
are non-removable and one GBIC based port that can accept either a long wave or short wave removable GBIC. A long wave or short wave
removable GBIC is ordered separately.
•
The Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8 has a modular chassis design with hot pluggable fans and power supply, an optional second power supply, an onoff power switch, and a field replaceable system board. The Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8-EL has a sealed chassis design with 3 fixed fans (any one
fan can fail and the switch will continue to operate indefinitely), a single power supply, no on-off power switch and no field replaceable components.
The Fibre Channel SAN Switch 8-EL supports all the same operating systems (except for HP-UX) and storage system connectivity as the SAN Switch 8
and SAN switch 16 products and is 100 percent compatible with them.

Configuration versatility
•
“Universal Ports” self-configure to the type of device that is connected to them. They automatically detect a fabric attached device (F port), an FCAL
attached device (FL port), or another Compaq StorageWorks Fibre Channel SAN Switch (E port).
•
Unique translative addressing allows private loop devices to be addressed by fabric attached devices.
Port configuration flexibility
•
Seven Integrated fixed short-wave optical transceiver ports support distances of up to 500 meters between server and switch, and between storage
system and switch, using multi-mode fiber optic cable.
•
One removable GBIC port supports either short-wave or long-wave GBIC-based transceivers. Long-wave GBICs support distances up to 10 km
between switches using single-mode fiber optic cable.
•
Either port type can be used for switch to switch (E-port) connectivity.
Zoning functionality enables creations of multiple “logical” SANs within a switch fabric
•
Zone members only see other members of the zone.
•
Devices may belong to more than one zone.
•
Zones may be configured dynamically.
•
Hardware and software zoning implementation increases security.
Easy switch management
Administrative functions take place from an existing LAN-based system or locally within the SAN itself. Supported management methods include:
•
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol)
•
Telnet
•
Web-Based Management Tools launched via StorageWorks Command Console
•
Serial port for setting initial IP address, and resetting switch to factory parameters
Disaster resilience and Scalability
•
Two switches can be interconnected and separated from each other by up to 10 km with base system E-Port connection.
•
Multiple switches can be interconnected with optional Multiple E-Port Connectivity software.
All Fibre Channel SAN Switches are qualified for use with MA8000, EMA12000, EMA16000, MSA1000, Enterprise Virtual Array storage systems
