Get fast data transfer speeds with the HP StorageWorks 3GB SAS BL Switch. Serial Attached SCSI point-to-point serial protocol (SAS) is designed to move data faster. Point-to-point serial connections have become the preferred method for implementing high-availability systems because they’re more reliable than shared bandwidth serial connections. The BladeSystem enclosure transforms your infrastructure into something simple but more useful to your business. With 16 internal blade bay ports containing 2x 3Gb/s SAS links and 8 external Mini-SAS ports that contain 4x 3GB/s SAS links, it provides effective direct connect storage. The HP StorageWorks (AJ864A) switch is ideally suited for small and medium business enterprises. SAS is an enhancement and replacement to parallel SCSI. Serial Attached SCSI offers a full, dual-ported connection that supports demanding, high-availability requirements. The 3GB SAS BL Switch is supported only in the HP c-class c3000 and c7000 BladeSystem enclosures. Internal server networking connections to each switch offer redundant paths to endure a switch or port malfunction. The switch supports SAS tape devices for optional backup. Using the bandwidth to its fullest extent, data is constantly moving through the system from one point to another. This results in speedy information transfer. The SAS BL Switch is an essential part of direct connect storage as it enables a straightforward external, shared SAS solution. HP BladeSystem uses converged structure for server, storage, and networking. It helps you improve the ongoing management and utilization of your network by users and admins. With the BladeSystem, you can easily deploy and expand capacity by configuring additional drives to a server’s drive zone without moving a single cable. This provides reliability and cost-effective performance for your business solutions. The HP StorageWorks 3GB expansion plug-in module switch supports Dual Domain direct attached SAS architecture. It is possible using HP MDS600 Dual I/O Module Option Kit and dual-ported SAS drive. This Switch also supports higher performance integration between the 3G SAS Switch and MDS600 drawer by attaching 2 SAS cables from any quad of 3G SAS Switch external Mini-SAS ports to the 2 Mini-SAS ports on the MDS600 IO module. Note that both SAS cables used for the 8x connection must be attached to the same quad of external ports (ports 1-4 or ports 5-8) of HP 3GB SAS BL Switch. The HP StorageWorks (AJ864A) 8-Ports Plug-in module Switch’s system uses common switch management for shared and zoned SAS storage, and it uses Smart Array ACU for use with MDS600. HP Systems Insight Manager and Onboard Administrator support are included in the system. Up to 6 MDS600 storage devices can be supported by one BladeSystem enclosure for up to 420TB of capacity. The HP StorageWorks’s interface features Backplane System with 8x storage for superior electrical performance. The switch has 40-watt power operational consumption. Its Processor is Freescale 400MHz. supported operating systems are Linux and Microsoft Windows. The hardware’s width is 15 inches, height is 2 inches, depth is 11 inches, and weight is 3 pounds. Its maximum operating temperature is 95 degrees Fahrenheit, and the minimum operating temperature is 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This product is covered by a global limited warranty and supported by HP. This Switch is great for improving stability and performance in enterprise networking solutions.
