HP 6Gb/s SAS BL Switch
Overview
The HP StorageWorks 6Gb/s SAS BL Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosures is an integral part of HP direct connect SAS The
HP 6Gb SAS BL Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosures is an integral part of HP direct connect SAS storage, enabling a
shared SAS storage solution. The SAS architecture combines a P711m or P712m (with cache module) Smart Array in each server
and 6Gb/s SAS BL switches connected to supported HP storage enclosures for SAS storage. The 6 Gb/s SAS BL Switch contains an
embedded Virtual SAS Manager (VSM) GUI & CLI interface used to zone, monitor, and update SAS fabric devices.
The 6 Gb/s SAS BL Switch enables external SAS storage solutions for BladeSystem servers:
Shared SAS: The 6 Gb/s SAS BL Switch can be used to access shared SAS storage provided by the P2000 G3. A P711m or
P712m (with cache module) Smart Array controller installed in each server acts as a pass-through, with RAID functionality for
shared SAS storage provided by the MSA P2000 G3 array. The P2000 G3 creates a shared storage environment where more
than one blade server can access a storage logical unit.

NOTE: HP recommends a maximum of 2 tape drives per 6Gb/s SAS BL Switch and
64K transfer sizes. Attaching a library with 4 tape drives requires purchasing a second
tape library SAS cable (AN975A or AN976A) and attaching 2 drives to the redundant
6Gb/s SAS BL Switch. Attaching more than 2 tape drives per switch and transfer sizes
greater than 64K could result in a failed backup or restore. A future release of
firmware on the tape library drives will allow more than 2 tape drives to be attached to
a switch.
