          • Warranty: N/A

          The IBM System Storage SAN24B-4 Express can be used to create a wide range of high-performance SAN solutions, from simple, single-switch configurations to larger, multi-switch configurations which support fabric connectivity and advanced business continuity capabilities. This switch can serve as the cornerstone of a Storage Area Network for those who want to obtain the benefits of storage consolidation and are just beginning to implement Fibre Channel storage systems. An entry-level eight-port storage consolidation solution, it can support up to seven servers with a single
          path to either disk or tape. The “Ports on Demand” feature is designed to enable this base switch to grow to sixteen and twenty-four ports to support more servers and more storage devices without taking the switch offline. A high-availability solution can be created with redundant switches. This capability is ideal for server clustering environments. Such a configuration can support from six to twenty-two servers, each with dual Fibre Channel adapters cross-connected to redundant SAN24B-4 Express switches which are cross-connected to a dual-controller storage system.
