            This is the HP StorageWorks 8/80 Power Pak+ 48 Full Fabric Ports Enabled SAN Switch. It comes with Power Pack+ software for Adaptive Networking, ISL Trunking, Extended Fabric, Advanced Performance Monitoring, and Fabric Watch.

            Adaptive Networking allows flexible control of traffic movement within the fabric which delivers application aware management of fabric resources. 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. Advanced Performance Monitor enabling technology helps administrators monitor and watch specific fabric metrics. 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. And ISL Trunking groups up to eight E-ports to provide a high bandwidth trunk between two switches.

            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.
