HP 8/80 SAN Switch & 8/80 SAN Switch Power
Pack+ /B-Series Family
Overview
The HP 8/80 SAN Switch is ideal for medium- to large-sized organizations that need a scalable, high-availability
solution that will facilitate consolidation and the flexibility to meet rapidly evolving storage requirements. Whether an
organization's requirements call for a standalone high port count switch, a high port count core switch, or a large
building block for a tiered enterprise fabric, the 8/80 SAN Switch provides the highest performance, highest scalability,
availability, and best investment protection available to meet the needs of today's consolidated virtual data center.
To support mission-critical environments, the 8/80 SAN Switch features a non-blocking architecture with as many as
80 ports concurrently active at 8 Gbit/sec full duplex with no over-subscription-providing an aggregate bandwidth of
1280 Gbit/sec. Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking can supply up to 64 Gbit/sec of balanced data throughput to reduce
congestion and increase bandwidth. It also supports new virtualization technologies that are driving efficiency and
flexibility benefits. For example, organizations that have deployed virtual server environments require higher levels of
connectivity for consolidation and higher levels of performance to cost-effectively meet the demands of virtual data
centers.
The 8/80 SAN Switch is an 8Gb Fibre Channel Switch and delivers up to 80 ports in a 2u footprint. The switch is
available in two models with a 16 port upgrade license to add ports non-disruptively:
HP 8/80 SAN Switch Power Pack+ with 48 active ports and value added software
HP 8/80 SAN Switch with 48 active ports (Base)
The density of the 8/80 SAN Switch uniquely enables fan-out from the core of the data center fabric with less than half
the number of switch devices to manage compared to traditional 32- or 40-port edge switches. When deployed as a
core SAN fabric switch, the fully enabled 80 port SAN Switch provides a single-switch core footprint that is ideal for
SAN fan-out using lower-density B-series switches. This single-domain solution is ideal for environments that have
high port count needs but do not require the capabilities of a director-class fabric core.
The 8/80 SAN Switch provides a reliable SAN foundation 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 8/80 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 8/80 SAN Switch Power Pack+ includes the 8/80 SAN Switch (Base) with additional software: Adaptive
Networking, Fabric Watch, ISL Trunking, Extended Fabric, Server Application Optimization, and Performance Monitor.
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 single-pane-of-glass.
The 8/80 SAN Switch enables organizations to use 4 Gbit/sec SFPs today and upgrade to 8 Gbit/sec SFPs, so they
can fully leverage their existing IT resources and seamlessly incorporate new capabilities as necessary.

Product Highlights
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

Software Components, Optional
8/80 SAN Switch
The Power Pack+ Software Bundle comes with the 8/80 SAN Switch Power Pack+ or as an
Power Pack+ Softwareoptional software bundle for the 8/80 SAN Switch. It includes the following:
Bundle
Adaptive Networking
Fabric Watch
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.
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.

Product Highlights
Advanced
This optional enabling technology helps administrators monitor and watch specific fabric
Performance Monitor metrics -- 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
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
SAN Network Advisor HP SAN Network Advisor Professional is a management application available at no-charge
Professional
and comes with B-series SAN Switches and:
Allows management of a single Fabric OS (FOS) fabric (up to a 1,000 switch ports) at a
time
Performs group switch management beyond the scope of Web Tools
Does not offer management of the SN8000B 8-Slot or DC SAN Backbone Directors
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 SAN Network Advisor Professional and have a small
SAN environment may over time feel the need for an enterprise-class product (SAN Network
Advisor 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 SAN Network Advisor Professional to
SAN Network Advisor Enterprise.

Product Highlights
SAN Network Advisor HP SAN Network Advisor Enterprise and Professional+ are the enterprise-class products that
Enterprise and
support FOS products as well as FOS and M-EOS products together. SAN Network Advisor
Professional+
Enterprise provides complete SN8000B 8-Slot Director and DC SAN Backbone Director
management including enterprise-class features/environments such as FICON, Fibre Channel
Routing, FCIP, adaptive networking, etc while HP SAN Network Advisor Professional+
provides the same feature set except for support for the SN8000B 8-Slot Director, DC SAN
Backbone Director, and FICON.
HP SAN Network Advisor Enterprise delivers unprecedented scalability, up to 24 fabrics and
9,000 switch ports, while HP SAN Network Advisor Professional+ scales to 4 SAN Fabrics
and 2560 switch ports. To accommodate growth, there is an upgrade available to SAN
Network Advisor Enterprise from SAN Network Advisor Professional Plus.
Both offerings provide brand-new features including Adaptive Networking features for quality
of service, ingress rate limiting and traffic isolation zones.
ISL Trunking
For high performance enhanced Trunking, this optional license logically groups up to four Eports 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 Gb) when routing connections between 8Gb switches. Connections are
load-balanced across the individual links, which comprise the logical trunk group.
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 or
switch. 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.
