Project Description

ExaSAN SWF16 is the newest member of the PCIe 2.0 switch family. With 16 ports, it allows up to 12 clients to share over 700 terabytes of storage for efficient, productive, and collaborative workflow. 4 ports are allocated for ExaSAN storage systems such as the 2U, 12bay, A12S2-PS and JBODs. SWF16 provides 20Gb/s of bandwidth to each client, and 20Gb/s to each storage port through the 20Gb/s QFSP connections. The maximum capacity that can be shared to the 12 clients is 768TB using 4TB HDDs, making it the largest PCIe2.0 based SAN available.
