Product Details


The HPE SN6000B Fibre Channel Switch meets the demands of hyper-scale, private cloud storage environments by delivering market-leading 16 Gb Fibre Channel technology and capabilities that support highly virtualized environments. Designed to enable maximum flexibility and investment protection, the SN6000B Switch is configurable in 24, 36, or 48 ports and supports 4, 8, 10, or 16 Gbps speeds in an efficiently designed 1U package. It also provides a simplified deployment process and a point-and-click user interface-making it both powerful and easy to use. The SN6000B Switch offers low-cost access to industry-leading Storage Area Network (SAN) technology while providing "pay-as-you-grow" scalability to meet the needs of an evolving storage environment.


  • 16Gb 48-port FC Switch with 48 active ports; rackmount kit; accessory kit
    (enterprise safety and regulatory information, installation guide, rack-mounting instructions)
  • Power cords, serial cable
  • Base software of Advanced Fabric OS, Advanced Web Tools, Advanced Zoning, SAN Network Advisor Professional
  • Brocade EZ Switch, and Power Pack+ software of Adaptive Networking
  • ISL Trunking, Extended Fabric, Advanced Performance Monitoring, Server Application Optimization, and Fabric Watch. Starting with FOS 7.4.0a, Fabric Watch and Advanced Performance Monitor will be obsolete. Fabric Watch settings can be converted to MAPS prior to upgrading and Advanced Performance Monitor is replaced by Flow Vision. Both MAPS and Flow Vision require a Fabric Vision license.
