Family Data sheet
Realise the advantages of
Converged Infrastructure with HP
Converged Network Switches and
Adapters
Data centres are increasingly being filled with dense
rack-mount and blade servers that host powerful
multi-core processors. This is pushing demand for 10
Gigabit Ethernet and consolidated I/O; applications
for which the HP Nexus 5000 and HP StorageWorks
2408 Converged Network Switches are the perfect
match. With low latency, front-to-back cooling and
rear-facing ports, this family of data centre switches
is designed for transitioning to 10 Gigabit Ethernet
and deploying a converged fabric that can handle
LAN, SAN and server cluster networks over a
single link.
Moreover, as the need for a converged infrastructure
grows, dual-port adapters are available that provide
both Ethernet and Fibre Channel (FC) connectivity
over 10 GbE using both Fibre Channel over Ethernet
(FCoE), Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) and
IEEE Data Center Bridging (DCB) standards.
HP StorageWorks 2408 Converged
Network Switch
HP StorageWorks 2408 Converged Network Switch
provides a reliable platform that helps reduce cable
clutter, equipment acquisition costs and operational
costs associated with power consumption and
cooling. The switch features a 1U form factor and
low power consumption, delivering a ‘greener’
data centre.
HP StorageWorks 2408 FCoE Converged
Network Switch features 8 FC ports for 8 Gbit/sec
performance along with 24 Ethernet ports for
10 Gbit/sec performance. The 10 Gbit Ethernet
ports support CEE which increases the reliability,
efficiency and scalability of Ethernet networks. These
features allow support of multiple traffic classes over
lossless Ethernet fabric, thus enabling consolidation
of LAN, SAN and cluster environments.
HP Nexus 5000 Converged
Network Switches
The HP Nexus 5000 Converged Network Switch
family, using cut-through architecture, supports
line-rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet on all ports while
maintaining consistently low latency independent of
packet size and services enabled. It supports a set
of network technologies known collectively as IEEE
DCB that increases the reliability, efficiency and
scalability of Ethernet networks. These features allow
the switches to support multiple traffic classes over a
lossless Ethernet fabric, thus enabling consolidation
of LAN, SAN and cluster environments. Its ability to
connect FCoE to native FC protects existing storage
system investments while dramatically simplifying
in-rack cabling.
There are two Nexus 5000 models. The HP Nexus
5020 is a two-rack-unit, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, FCoE
and FC switch built to provide 1.04 terabits per
second (Tbps) throughput with very low latency. It
has 40 fixed 10 Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE ports.
Two expansion module slots can be configured
to support additional 10 Gigabit Ethernet, FCoE
and/or FC switch ports. The HP Nexus 5010 is
a 1U, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, FCoE and FC switch
providing more than 520-Gbps throughput with very
low latency. It has 20 fixed 10 Gigabit Ethernet
and FCoE ports. One expansion module slot can
be configured to support additional 10 Gigabit
Ethernet, FCoE and/or FC switch ports.
Key features and benefits
High Performance
•Converged fabrics: Enables network
I/O convergence at the rack level. It is a
straightforward encapsulation of FC within Ethernet
that preserves existing FC network management
models and tools, helping protect investments in
software and staff training.
•Enhanced Ethernet: Industry Standard protocols
enable communication over 10 Gb Ethernet in
a lossless manner, allowing very high levels of
communication reliability.
•Auto-sensing 2, 4 and 8 Gb/sec FC switch
ports: Enable rapid deployment with minimal
configuration in existing environments; provide
the highest performance available, with complete
backward and forward investment protection.
Unified Management
•Integrated FCoE and FC management: FCoE
extends the reach of FC management applications
and tools, enabling organisations to manage
FCoE-attached devices under a single, unified
management umbrella.
•Protects customers’ FC investments: FCoE
Converged network switches are managed by
the same FC management tools and applications
currently deployed in data centres without
disrupting operations.
•No need for new training or learning of new
tools: IT professionals continue to use familiar
tools without the need to extend training
or cumbersome deployment of unfamiliar
management applications.
Increased Consolidation
•Reduce server ports, cables and switch ports:
The FCoE switch is capable of transporting both
storage and LAN traffic – removing the need for
separate SAN and LAN adapters and cables.
•Reduce capital and operational expenditures:
The consolidated SAN and LAN server ports
and corresponding cables simplify configuration
and cabling in server cabinets to reduce
acquisition costs.
•Reduce power consumption: Converged SAN
and LAN traffic require fewer components using
power or requiring cooling, organisations can save
significant operating costs as well.

HP StorageWorks Converged
Network Adapters
HP StorageWorks Converged Network Adapters
(CNAs) reduce acquisition, operational, power
and cooling costs by consolidating Ethernet and
FC functionality onto one converged adapter. By
consolidating Ethernet and FC onto a converged
adapter, HP CNAs reduce the number of separate
adapters and cables required for your data centre
and also reduce operational, power and cooling
costs while preserving existing Ethernet and FC
infrastructure. HP CNAs have also been thoroughly
tested with HP ProLiant servers and HP Top of Rack
(ToR) switches to enable an optimal HP FCoE solution
for your data centre.
Key features and benefits
Converged Infrastructure
•Ethernet + FC in one adapter: Combines the
functionality of a NIC (Ethernet) and Fibre Channel
Host Bus Adapter (FC HBA) onto a single
converged adapter reducing the number of
adapters and cables, and reducing acquisition
and operational costs.
•Promotes a ‘green’ data centre: Fewer
components and reduced power consumption
result not only in cost savings but promoting a
more ‘green’ data centre.
•Integrates seamlessly into existing
infrastructure: Designed to integrate and coexist
with existing FC and Ethernet infrastructure to
protect your existing infrastructure investment.
Reliability
•Data Center Bridging reliability standards:
Sends FC data packets through FCoE using DCB
functionality enabling high standards of data
integrity and lossless Ethernet.
Provides HP ProLiant connectivity to storage
and networks
•Robust interoperability testing: Provides an
HP-branded CNA solution that has undergone
extensive HP interoperability testing for
connecting HP ProLiant servers into storage
and networking environments.
•Compatible with HP Top of Rack (ToR) FCoE
Switches: Optimal for connecting into HP ToR
B-series and C-series FCoE Converged
Network Switches.
Flexible connect
•Optical or direct attach copper cables: Choose
between SFP+ SR (optical) or direct attach
copper cable connectivity allowing maximum
flexibility in connecting to HP FCoE Converged
