HP StorageWorks 8/40 SAN Switch & 8/40 SAN
Switch Power Pack+/B-Series Family
Overview
The HP StorageWorks 8/40 SAN Switch is ideal for organizations requiring a flexible solution that is forward and backward
compatible and will meet rapidly evolving storage requirements, either as a small "building-block" switch for a departmental
fabric or as a high-performance edge switch in larger core-to-edge SAN configurations.
The 8/40 SAN Switch is designed for rapidly growing storage requirements in mission-critical environments-combining 1, 2,
4, and 8 Gbit/sec Fibre Channel technology in configurations of 24, 32, or 40 ports in an efficiently designed 1U package. A
fully populated 8/40 SAN Switch with 40 ports enabled features a non-blocking architecture at 8 Gbit/sec full duplex to
provide an aggregate bandwidth of 680 Gbit/sec. Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking can supply up to 64 Gbit/sec of balanced
data throughput to reduce congestion and increase bandwidth. The 8/40 SAN Switch also enables organizations to use 4
Gbit/sec SFPs today and upgrade to 8 Gbit/sec SFPs when required.
The 8/40 SAN Switch is available in two models with an 8 port upgrade license to add ports non-disruptively:
HP StorageWorks 8/40 SAN Switch Power Pack+ with 24 enabled ports and value added software
HP StorageWorks 8/40 SAN Switch with 24 enabled ports (Base)
The 8/40 SAN Switch provides a reliable foundation for disaster recovery and business continuance by employing
enterprise-class availability features such as hot-swappable, redundant, and integrated fan and power supply assemblies.
Moreover, hot code load and activation help maximize application uptime with faster system upgrades and maintenance to
reduce the dependency on scheduled outages. Combined with a wide range of diagnostic and monitoring functions, these
capabilities help provide a highly available SAN environment.
As an option for connecting switches in a fabric, the 8/40 SAN Switch provides Fibre Channel Integrated Routing
capabilities. Integrated Routing provides native Fibre Channel Routing on a per-port basis rather than limiting routing to
special-purpose routing switches or blades. Integrated Routing uses EX_Ports to import/export devices between fabrics,
enabling selective device sharing while maintaining remote fabric isolation for higher levels of scalability and fault isolation.
The 8/40 SAN Switch Power Pack+ includes the 8/40 SAN Switch (Base) with additional software: Adaptive Networking,
Fabric Watch, ISL Trunking, Extended Fabric, Performance Monitor, and Server Application Optimization. Power Pack+
software 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. Enhanced Power Pack+ 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 singlepane-of-glass.

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.
Data Center Fabric Manager Professional, Professional Plus, 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.
Software Components, Optional
8/40 SAN Switch Power The Power Pack+ Software Bundle comes with the 8/80 SAN Switch Power Pack+ or as an
Pack+ Software Bundleoptional software bundle for the 8/40 SAN Switch. It includes the following:
Adaptive Networking
Fabric Watch
Advanced Performance Monitor
Extended Fabric
ISL Trunking
Server Application Optimization
Adaptive Networking
Adaptive Networking (AN) is an optional 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.

Product Highlights
Fabric Watch
Fabric Watch is an optional license which 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.
Advanced PerformanceThis optional enabling technology helps administrators monitor and watch specific fabric metrics -Monitor
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.
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.
Extended Fabric
Optional license which 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.
FICON Support
Optional license which enable host control of switches in mainframe environments
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 8Gb switch needs its own license.
The switch operating system views the trunk as a single, high bandwidth resource (up to 64Gb)
when routing connections between 8G switches. Connections are load-balanced across the
individual links, which comprise the logical trunk group.
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. There is an
upgrade available from DCFM Professional Plus to DCFM Enterprise.
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.
Please refer to the Migration and Transition guide for additional information.
Integrated Routing
Integrated Routing is an optional license which provides native Fibre Channel Routing (FRC) on a
per-port basis, rather than limiting routing ports to those on a dedicated routing blade. Just like
traditional FCR, Integrated Routing uses EX_Ports to import/export devices between fabrics,
enabling selective device sharing while maintaining remote fabric isolation. Integrated Routing
provides architecture flexibility to route on a port-by-port basis, enabling increased scalability and
fault isolation.
