IBM Storage Networking SAN96C-6 Specifications:

  • High density and scale: Ninety-six 32 Gbps line rate enhanced small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) ports deliver an aggregate bandwidth of 3 Tbps per switch for highly scalable designs in hyperscale environments that drive several thousands of VM instances within the rack. This switch provides at least six ports that can be configured with up to 8270 Buffer-To-Buffer (B2B) credits that can be connected to remote data centers as far as 612 km (380 miles) using native FC connectivity at 32 Gbps speeds. These distances become even greater at lower speeds.

  • High performance: Centralized nonblocking arbitration delivers consistent 32 Gbps low-latency performance across all traffic conditions for every FC port on the switch.

  • Capital expenditure (CapEx) savings: The 32 Gbps ports enable you to deploy them on existing 8 Gbps or 16 Gbps transceivers to provide investment protection, with an option to upgrade to 32 Gbps transceivers and adapters whenever needed.
