High-Availability and Redundancy Features

High-availability and redundancy features of the AK860B HPE Dc San Director 8GB Fibre Channel 48-Ports Switch are designed to ensure that the switch remains operational in the event of a failure or outage. These features include:

  • Dual-redundant power supplies: The switch has two power supplies that can work together to provide power to the switch. In the event of a failure of one power supply, the other one can take over and keep the switch running.
  • Dual-redundant fans: The switch also has two fans that can work together to keep the switch cool. In the event of a failure of one fan, the other one can take over and keep the switch running.
  • Non-stop forwarding (NSF): This feature ensures that the switch continues to forward data even if a failure occurs. This means that there is no interruption in the flow of data and no loss of connectivity.
  • In-service software upgrades (ISSU): This feature allows the switch to be upgraded without having to take it offline. This means that the switch can be upgraded while it is still in operation, which minimizes downtime.
  • Fabric Vision technology: This technology monitors the health of the switch and the fabric, and alerts administrators to any potential issues before they become critical. This allows administrators to proactively address any issues and keep the switch running smoothly.

Performance and Scalability

The AK860B HPE Dc San Director 8GB Fibre Channel 48-Ports Switch is designed for high performance and scalability in large data center environments. It offers a high-bandwidth 8GB Fibre Channel interface, which allows for fast data transfer rates and low latency. The switch also has 48 ports, providing a large number of connection points for storage and server devices.

One of the key performance features of the AK860B is its ability to handle high traffic loads. The switch can handle up to 720 Gbps of throughput, which means it can handle large amounts of data without experiencing bottlenecks or slowdowns. This makes it ideal for environments where high-bandwidth applications, such as video streaming or large data transfers, are in use.

In terms of scalability, the AK860B has a number of features that make it easy to expand the network as needed. The switch supports zoning, which allows for the creation of isolated logical networks within the physical network. This means that as new devices are added to the network, they can be placed in the appropriate zone for optimal performance. Additionally, the switch supports fabric merging, which allows for the connection of multiple Fibre Channel fabrics into a single large fabric. This makes it easy to expand the network as needed without disrupting existing connections.
