The explosive growth in enterprise flash storage and the deployment of the latest HPE Gen10 servers powered by the latest Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family with up to 28 cores is driving the need for high-performance storage networking to prevent application performance bottlenecks.

Additionally, deploying the right-sized storage networking infrastructure optimizes investment returns on new storage and server infrastructure purchases.

Fibre Channel is a core storage networking and connectivity option for HPE 3PAR StorServ, Nimble, MSA and StoreVirtual storage systems. In all instances, Fibre Channel delivers:

  • Guaranteed loss-less data delivery
  • Low latency and high scalability
  • Guaranteed loss-less data delivery

The server Fibre Channel (FC) Host Bus Adapter (HBA) is a critical element of this storage network. The HPE StoreFabric SN1600E Gen 6 32GFC HBA, from Emulex, delivers the ultimate in high bandwidth, low latency and high IOPs to meet any application requirements, from database online transaction processing or data warehousing to backup/restore and OpenStack Cinder block storage. The new HPE SN1200E is a 16GFC HBA, built on the same platform as the SN1600E that delivers the same features as the HPE SN1600E HBA with 16GFC throughput.

Both the SN1600E and SN1200E deliver industry-leading capabilities including:

  • NVMe over Fiber Channel-enablement
  • Secure Firmware Updates
  • ExpressLane LUN prioritization for WRITE operations
  • 10 million hour Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) reliability
  • HPE 3PAR Smart SAN compliance for simplified deployment

Improving Business Outcomes with HPE DL380 Gen9 Server, 3PAR StoreServ 8450 All-Flash Storage, StoreFabric SN6600B Switch and SN1600E HBA Gen 6 32GFC Technology.

Solid State storage is becoming increasingly common in the computing industry with hybrid and all-flash array deployments taking the place of traditional HDD storage for high performance workloads.
