Why waste device ports and expensive 8Gb SFPs creating ISL trunks? Ultra-high-speed switch-to-switch connectivity is INCLUDED with the 5800V!

Next-Generation SANs for Today’s Infrastructure

The newest addition to QLogic’s award-winning SANbox® 5000 Series unleashes powerful data access possibilities for small to large enterprise customers. SANbox 5800V stackable switches offer IT managers the best choice to increase the value and impact of current storage investments while preparing for known and unknown competitive business requirements tomorrow.

The SANbox 5800V is backwards-compatible with 4Gb and 2Gb devices and optics, and may be deployed as either an 8Gb or a 4Gb switch.

Four included 10Gb stacking ports provide more than 50Gb additional bandwidth per switch – the equivalent of six extra 8Gb ports at no charge!

At their default 10Gb setting, these ports offer more than enough bandwidth for most SANs, particularly in mixed 8Gb/4Gb environments. Every 8Gb device port remains available for storage and server connections, minimizing hardware costs and completely eliminating complex re-cabling and associated user downtime as your network scales.

With the optional 20Gb non-disruptive upgrade, the same stacking ports provide over 100Gb bandwidth per switch – the equivalent of 12 extra 8Gb ports. Since 20Gb uses the same low-cost stacking cables as 10Gb, this upgrade allows you to double the speed of your inter-switch fabric (the most performance-critical part of the SAN) with the click of a mouse! Try doing that with a conventional non-stacking switch!

Best of all, there’s no need to pay for the 20Gb bandwidth until you need it.

• Expand from 8 to 20 8Gb device ports per switch
• 4-port expansion increments – economical, easy-to-activate
• Stack up to six switches for 120 device ports in a single manageable unit
• Zero device port wasted for inter-switch links (ISLs) – all 8-120 per stack remain available for server and storage connections
• Dedicated “best practices” inter-switch backbone simplifies planning
• No user disruption and re-cabling during expansion
• Deploy single or stacked 5800V switches in SANs of any size
• Use qualified SFPs from any vendor – no SFP lock-down!

• 8Gb SFP ports (compatible with 4Gb/2Gb devices and optics)
• 10Gb/20Gb MSA-compliant XPAK stacking ports (10Gb and 20Gb use same cables)
• 100% non-blocking architecture
• I/O StreamGuardTM guarantees uninterrupted dataflow for streaming applications such as tape backup or video
• Included Adaptive TrunkingTM automatically pools bandwidth from multiple inter-switch links into a single high-speed Virtual Lane -- without extra license fees or the need for manual configuration.
• Industry’s fastest switching ASIC – less than 0.2us latency

• Wizard-based installation for fast deployment
• QuickTools™ On-Board management GUI included
• Drag-and-Drop Zoning interface included
• Fabric Security bundle now included!

Investment Protection
SANbox 5800V provides low TCO, extended product life-span, and a phased “pay-as-you-grow” approach that will enhance any company’s long-term financial strategy. Make business-critical applications and personnel more productive with a next-generation QLogic SAN, the best choice for today’s infrastructure – and tomorrow’s.

NOTE: Customers who order a 20-port unit will receive the base 8-port switch, plus three easy-to-apply 4-port expansion licenses (LK-5800-4PORT).
