The IBM System Storage SAN384B fabric backbone is a core and edge network switching platform designed for midrange to enterprise-level Storage Area Network (SAN) applications. It features multiprotocol architecture, high performance, and scalable design:
8 Gbps industry-standard Fibre Channel (FC) switch capability for systems that support 8 Gbps throughput
Auto sensing FC ports supporting 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, 4 Gbps, and 8 Gbps
Up to 384, 8 Gbps user ports connected in a dual core with the use of Inter-Chassis Links (ICLs), and up to 192 ports in a single domain
High-performance port and switching blades
The IBM System Storage SAN48B-5 switch is designed to meet the demands of hyper-scale private or hybrid cloud storage environments by delivering Gen 5 Fibre Channel technology and capabilities with 16 Gbps performance that support highly virtualized environments. To enable greater flexibility and investment protection, SAN48B-5 is configurable up to 48 ports and supports speeds up to 16 Gbps in a designed 1U package.
