M-series Switches

HPE StoreFabric SN2700M switches are ideal for modern server and storage networks. Supporting 10, 25, 40, 50, and 100GbE, it delivers predictable performance and zero packet loss at line-rate across all ports and packet sizes. Optimized for storage combined with efficient design provide enterprise-level performance with attractive economics and outstanding ROI. Networks built on the HPE SN2700M are fast, reliable, and scalable while also being affordable and easily managed. They support all types of primary and secondary storage, providing consistently fair, fast, low-latency connectivity even under heavy workloads or a mix of different port speeds. This makes them ideal for storage, hyper converged, financial services, and media and entertainment deployments.

Features

Designed for Superior Performance, Scale, and Future Growth

The HPE StoreFabric SN2700M Ethernet switches deliver predictable and consistent throughput regardless of the packet size being transferred, the mixture of ports which are sending data and even within mixed speed environments.

Provide wire-rate performance with zero packet loss across all frame sizes, avoiding any negative impact on applications that could occur with frame loss as unexpected packet loss is unacceptable in modern data centers, especially within a storage network.

Capable of forwarding 100% capacity wire rate performance with zero packet loss across all 32-ports concurrently at 100GbE speeds while transferring data across both Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks.

Can be deployed today to support 10GbE ports (via splitter cables) and is designed to be able to evolve over time to support 25, 50, and 100GbE speeds. This helps future proof your network architecture and allows for implementing significant speed changes to the architecture over time.

Optimized for Demanding Enterprise Data Centers and Storage Environments

The HPE StoreFabric SN2700M switch allows for flexible port speed configurations from 64-ports at 10, 25, and 50GbE using splitter cables to 32-ports at 40 or 100GbE allowing for flexibility, efficiency, simplifying scale-out of aggregation switching layers, reducing total cost of ownership.

In the aggregation layer of fabrics, load balancing and scalability are essential. The HPE SN2700M provides superior Equal Cost Multi Path (ECMP) flexibility and efficiency to deliver balanced workloads.

Flexible management and monitoring options from CLI, GUI and tool sets provide world class ease-of-use, configuration and monitoring of your fabric.

Unleash Storage Performance and Improve Flash Return on Investment

HPE StoreFabric SN2700M switch provides ultra-low latency of under 300ns port-to-port. This is advantageous for flash storage which moved latency form storage access to the network, as well as for the burst nature of today’s software defined and cloud data centers traffic.

Provides enough internal bandwidth that there is sufficient capacity to carry all ports at 100 Gb/s bandwidths concurrently. This allows the HPE SN2700M to avoid head-of-line blocking which can reduce a switches overall performance and guarantees.

Extremely flexible and performance rich lossless fabric capabilities make the HPE SN2700M ideal for mission critical storage applications.
