- 8 x 16Gb Fibre Channel SFP+ + 16 x 16Gb Fibre Channel (downlink)
- plug-in module
Do you need to simplify the way to connect your servers with the SAN? The HP Virtual Connect 16Gb 24-port Fibre Channel Module for c-Class BladeSystem is a new class of blade interconnect that simplifies server connections by cleanly separating the server enclosure from the SAN. It simplifies the process of connecting servers to Fibre Channel networks by reducing cables and your SAN switch management domain, and by allowing you to change servers in minutes. You can reduce costs and simplify connections to SANs, consolidate your network connections, and enable administrators to add, replace and recover server resources on-the-fly. Being standards-based, it looks like a pass-thru device to the Fibre Channel network, yet provides all the key benefits of integrated switching including high performance 16 Gb uplinks to the SAN. The integrated design frees up rack space, reduces power and cooling requirements, while reducing cables and utilizing small form-factor pluggable transmitters.
