Breakthrough Ease of Use
The first Fibre Channel stackable switches to be configured and zoned with simple wizards. Plus, SANsurfer Management Suite makes stack management easy throughout your SAN lifecycle by helping you install, configure, monitor, diagnose and upgrade your QLogic HBAs and switches all from ONE application!
Incredibly Low Cost
Starting at 8 ports, SANbox 5600 stackable switches offer an entry point affordable to the smallest business. And with an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI), you won't have to hire a SAN expert to manage your stack. In addition, QLogic management software is always shipped free with every switch sold.
Start with 8 ports and then grow your SAN in 4-port increments up to 64 ports in a single stack. A key benefit is the ability to add, change or delete switches without disrupting your storage network.
Interoperable with popular servers, storage and networking products from major manufacturers, including ADIC, Brocade, Cisco, Computer Associates, Dell, EMC, Emulex, HDS, HP, IBM, LSI, McDATA, Microsoft, Quantum, StorageTek, Sun, VERITAS, and many others.
Blazing 10Gb Performance
The first SAN product to support traffic between switches, servers and storage at up to 10Gb per second-six times faster than 2Gb networks being deployed today. A single, 10Gb inter-switch link (ISL) ensures low latency between switches and eliminates the cost and complexity of trunking up to six 2Gb ports.
