HP releases new storage-networking gear

Hewlett-Packard has released two new products for making storage devices available over networks. The eight-port Surestore Entry Switch FC switch--an HP-branded version of Brocade Communications' new Silkworm 3200 switch--lets customers build storage networks using the Fibre Channel networking technology. It has a starting cost of $5,599, HP said Tuesday. A higher-end version, with more sophisticated connections to other switches, costs $16,780 and up. In addition, HP began selling the Surestore NAS 8000, a device that bridges between regular Ethernet networks and Fibre Channel storage area networks.
