HP StorageWorks 8/8 Base SAN Switch and 8/8 SAN
Switch Family
Overview
The new 8/8 Base SAN Switch and 8/8 SAN Switch are targeted for small to medium sized enterprises and are ideal for
entry-level SANs, and as an edge switch for core-to-edge SAN environments. The 8/8 Base SAN Switch and 8/8 SAN
Switch provide SAN connectivity that simplifies IT management infrastructures, improves system performance, maximizes
the value of virtual server deployments, and reduces overall storage costs.
The 8/8 SAN Switch integrates innovative hardware and software features that make it easy to deploy, manage, and
integrate into a wide range of IT environments. The 8 Gbit/sec Fibre Channel 8/8 Base SAN Switch provides a simple,
affordable, single-switch solution for a new, small SAN installation and connects to storage and servers only. An optional Full
Fabric SAN scaling license provides connectivity to other switches. The 8/8 SAN Switch has 8 active ports and can be
connected to multiple switches and scale to full fabric limits as defined in the SAN Design Guide. Both new 8 port switches
provide growth options with Ports On Demand, the ability to activate additional ports in 8 port increments to a maximum of
24 ports. This provides the flexibility to start small and grow storage networks in a non-disruptive manner. In addition,
organizations can choose to initially deploy 4 Gbit/sec SFPs and upgrade to 8 Gbit/sec SFP+ at a later date when
necessary.
The 8/8 SAN Switch significantly increases performance and functionality for SANs at an entry-level price. The 8/8 SAN
Switch provides auto-sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gbit/sec full duplex performance to enable up to 128 Gbit/sec of uncongested
throughput. Auto-sensing and speed-matching of data traffic provides interoperability with previous 1, 2, and 4 Gbit/sec
devices. To provide more targeted performance, enhanced Inter-Switch Link (ISL) Trunking combines up to eight ISLs
between a pair of switches into a single, logical high-speed trunk capable of up to 64 Gbit/sec of throughput. The
evolutionary design provides these capabilities while consuming less than 2.5 watts of power per port for exceptional power
and cooling efficiency.
An optional enhanced Power Pack+ software bundle can be purchased separately and includes Adaptive Networking, Fabric
Watch, ISL Trunking, Extended Fabric, Advanced Performance Monitor, and Server Application Optimization. The software
bundle provides the SAN administrator with the necessary tools to proactively monitor the health and performance
thresholds of the network, while also ensuring the highest levels of security, scalability and manageability. Enhanced
capabilities are based on the new Adaptive Networking software, a suite of tools for optimizing fabric behavior and ensuring
ample bandwidth for mission-critical applications. Power Pack+ software enables infrastructure management through a
single-pane-of-glass.

Product Highlights
Advanced Zoning
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.
Web Tools
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.
EGM
Enhanced Group Management (EGM) is a FOS license that is included with all B-Series switches
and enables multi-switch operations. It helps automate operations across multiple switches to
save time and streamline repetitive operations, which are typically prone to error. EGM drives
consistency across fabrics, while minimizing the risk associated with potential downtime due to
configuration mismatches. EGM provides streamlined troubleshooting for more effective fabric
monitoring and diagnosis.
Both Data Center Fabric Manager Professional and Enterprise enable EGM functionality.
Customers have EGM functionality enabled within the hardware product and need only to make
the decision around which management application is right for them - Data Center Fabric Manager
Professional, Professional Plus, or Enterprise.

Adaptive Networking
Adaptive Networking (AN) is a family of technologies which allow flexible control of traffic
movement within the fabric which deliver application aware management of fabric resources.
Applications may be used with multiple protocols and multiple classes of service. It includes the
following features:
Ingress Rate Limiting:
Allows the ingress bandwidth of a port to be throttled to a rate lower than negotiated with the SAN
node. This could be very useful for enterprises offering stepped levels of service and enforcing
SLAs.
Quality of Service (QoS):
Enables zones with high, medium, and low priorities within a fabric on a zone by zone basis. This
can be very useful for prioritizing array replication over MANs and WANs over less critical traffic.
Traffic Isolation Zones:
Defines paths through a fabric for some or all nodes. Failover allows a non-preferred path to be
used if the preferred fails. TIZs use failover by default but it can be disabled if traffic should stop if
a preferred path fails. TIZ can be used to manually map out traffic flows within a fabric based on

application, priority, and topology.
ISL Trunking
For high performance enhanced Trunking, this optional license logically groups up to eight E-ports
to provide a high bandwidth trunk between two switches. Each 8 Gb switch needs its own license.
The switch operating system views the trunk as a single, high bandwidth resource (up to 64 Gbit/s)
when routing connections between switches. Connections are load-balanced across the individual
links, which comprise the logical trunk group.
Advanced PerformanceThis enabling technology helps administrators monitor and watch specific fabric metrics -- from a
Monitoring
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.
Top Talkers is a component of Advanced Performance Monitoring and tracks the top traffic flows
for hosts and targets for a switch port or a switch. Top Talkers can help identify the ports that need
certain Quality of Service (QoS) attributes or it can help determine portions of the physical
topology that need reconfiguration.
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.
Server Application
Optimization
Server Application Optimization (SAO) license improves overall application performance for
physical servers and virtual machines. SAO, when deployed with B-Series Fibre Channel HBAs,
extends B-Series Adaptive Networking from the B-series SAN fabric to the server infrastructure.
This delivers application-level, fine-grain Quality of Service (QoS) management to the HBAs and
related server applications.
Solution Requirements:
SAO license must be installed on the edge (server connected) switch
Adaptive Networking (AN) license must be installed on the edge (server connected) switch
SAO requires B-series HBA installed in the server

Data Center Fabric
HP StorageWorks Data Center Fabric Manager Professional is a server based management
Manager Professional application available at no-charge and comes with B-series SAN Switches and includes the
following features:
Allows management of a single Fabric OS (FOS) fabric (up to a 1,000 B-Series switch ports)
at a time
Performs group switch management beyond the scope of Web Tools
Does not offer management of the DC SAN Backbone Director or FICON
It is targeted for SMB customers that use FOS based SAN fabrics and require a management
solution for smaller SANs based on a single fabric.
SMB customers that initially start off with Data Center Fabric Manager Professional and have a
small SAN environment may over time feel the need for an enterprise-class product (Data Center
Fabric Manager Enterprise) as their environments start to grow in size and complexity, and as they
start to uptake more enterprise-class functionality (such as Fibre Channel Routing, FCIP, etc.). A
non-disruptive upgrade path is available from Data Center Fabric Manager Professional to Data
Center Fabric Manager Enterprise.
Data Center Fabric
Manager Enterprise
and Professional+
HP StorageWorks DCFM Enterprise and Professional+ are the enterprise-class products that
support FOS and M-EOS products. HP DCFM Enterprise provides complete DC SAN Backbone
Director management including enterprise-class features/environments such as FICON, Fibre
Channel Routing, FCIP, adaptive networking, etc while HP DCFM Professional+ provides the
same feature set except for support for the DC SAN Backbone Director and FICON.
HP DCFM Enterprise delivers unprecedented scalability, up to 24 fabrics and 9,000 switch ports,
while HP DCFM Professional+ scales to 4 SAN Fabrics and 2560 switch ports.
Both offerings provide brand-new features including Adaptive Networking features for quality of
service, ingress rate limiting and traffic isolation zones.
While DCFM provides increased functionality, not all features available in FM or HAFM are
available in DCFM Enterprise and Professional+, and some functions may operate differently.
