Title: Hewlett-Packard Co. StorageWorks 8Gb Simple SAN Connection Kit Comparison of Performance and Ease of SAN Deployment using HP Simple SAN Connection Manager (SSCM) Solution

Publication date:   20 June 2008
Document number:    208276


Hewlett-Packard Co. commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate the performance of its Fibre Channel-based Storage-Works 8Gb Simple SAN Connection Kit compared to a traditional 4Gb Fibre Channel (FC) solution.

The Tolly Group certified HP’s 8Gb Fibre Channel SAN solution featuring the StorageWorks 8Gb Simple SAN Connection Kit to be the “First 8Gb Fibre Channel SAN Solution” tested. Tolly Group engineers also compared the ease of deployment of a singlevendor end-to-end FC SAN, using HP’s Simple SAN Connection Manager, to that of a traditional multivendor FC SAN that required individual components like the HBA, switch and storage subsystem to be configured individually. Tests focused on the number of configuration steps and variables that needed to be configured to finish the deployment of the SAN.

Tests were conducted in February 2008.
