Simplify and make your data center change-ready. The HP Virtual Connect 8Gb 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 networks by reducing cables without adding switches to manage, and it allows you to change servers or move workloads in just minutes. You can reduce costs and simplify connections to LANs and SANs, consolidate your network connections and enable administrators to add, replace and recover server resources on-the-fly.

The standards-based Virtual Connect 8Gb 24-port Fibre Channel Module for c-Class BladeSystem looks like a pass-thru device to the network, yet provides all the key benefits of integrated switching including high performance 8 Gb uplinks to the SAN. The integrated design frees up rack space, reduces power and cooling requirements, and reduces cables and small form-factor pluggable transmitters.
