High-Speed 8GB Fibre Channel
High-speed 8GB Fibre Channel is a data transfer technology used in storage area network (SAN) systems. It provides fast and reliable data transfer between storage devices and servers, enabling high-speed data transfer and improved system performance.
In the context of the HP Storageworks AM866-63001 SAN switch, high-speed 8GB Fibre Channel provides the following benefits:
- Fast data transfer: The 8GB Fibre Channel transfer rate is eight times faster than traditional 1GB Fibre Channel, providing faster data transfer and improved system performance.
- Reliability: Fibre Channel is a highly reliable data transfer technology, reducing the risk of data loss or corruption and improving system availability.
- Scalability: The 8GB Fibre Channel technology in the AM866-63001 supports future growth and expansion of the storage network, allowing for the addition of more storage resources as needed.
- Improved storage utilization: The high-speed data transfer provided by 8GB Fibre Channel enables more effective and efficient use of storage resources, improving storage utilization.
Enhanced Data Availability
Enhanced data availability refers to the improvement in the availability of data in a system or network. In the context of the HP Storageworks AM866-63001 SAN switch, enhanced data availability is achieved through various features that increase the reliability and resilience of the switch, reducing the likelihood of data loss or unavailability.
Examples of features that contribute to enhanced data availability in the AM866-63001 include:
- Redundant power supply and cooling fans: These ensure that the switch continues to operate even if one component fails, minimizing downtime.
- Stackable design: The ability to stack multiple switches together enhances system reliability and reduces the impact of a switch failure on the overall system.
- High-speed 8GB Fibre Channel: This high-speed data transfer technology reduces the risk of data loss or corruption by providing fast and reliable data transfer.
- Error Correction: Error correction technology in the AM866-63001 helps to detect and correct data errors in real-time, further reducing the risk of data loss or corruption.
Management and Monitoring
Management and monitoring refer to the processes of controlling, managing, and monitoring a device or system to ensure its proper operation and performance. In the context of the HP Storageworks AM866-63001 SAN switch, management and monitoring is facilitated by various tools and features that allow administrators to effectively manage and monitor the switch, ensuring its optimal performance and availability.
Examples of management and monitoring features in the AM866-63001 include:
- Management software: The AM866-63001 includes management software that provides a graphical user interface for managing and monitoring the switch, allowing administrators to configure and manage the switch from a central location.
- Monitoring tools: The AM866-63001 includes monitoring tools such as error logs, performance monitoring, and alert notifications, which provide real-time information about the status and performance of the switch, allowing for quick problem resolution.
- Automated management: The AM866-63001 supports automated management features such as auto-discovery, configuration backup, and firmware updates, which simplify management and reduce the risk of errors.
- Remote management: The AM866-63001 supports remote management, allowing administrators to manage and monitor the switch from remote locations.

About Refurbished Products
Different Types of Switches
Networking switches vary widely depending on the number of devices they can support, network bandwidth/speed, and form factor. Switches for small offices will have anything between 4 and 8 ports and can fit on a desk. For larger office network implementation, switches may have 24 ports, 48 ports, 96 ports, and 128 ports and are rack-mountable between 1U and 4U. Switches come in different types depending on the network speed and tasks they support. These include 40/100 Gbps, 10 Gigabit (up to 10000 Mbps), Gigabit Ethernet (up to 1000 Mbps), Power over Ethernet, and Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps).
The unmanaged switches offer fixed configuration on a plug-and-play basis. It is the most basic switch and there are a few choices in the market. These switches are affordable, but the basic features make them inappropriate for enterprise applications.
The number of features and level of functionality improves with managed switches, making them ideal for enterprise and business applications. These switches are built with the command-line interface for ease of configuration. Equally, they support SNMP agents that come in handy when troubleshooting network issues.
The security on managed switches is better and will protect different types of traffic. Other features include support for virtual LANs, IP routing, and quality of service settings. Managed switches are more expensive compared to all other types of switches.
Smart switches refer to switches that possess more features than those of unmanaged switches but do not have the full features of managed switches. Smart switches are more cost-effective than managed switches.
Some of the limitations of the smart switches are a lack of telnet access support, Web GUIs, and a lack of many features for VLANs. They are affordable compared to a fully managed switch and are suitable for a smaller computer network.
Modular switches allow the addition of expansion modules as the network expands. The expansion modules allow for more networked devices but are application-specific. They may include wireless access points, firewalls, or network analysis tools. The flexibility of a modular networking switch comes at a higher cost.
