    hitachi storage complies with all the FC standards and specs *proud_smiley*

    so any modern 8G/16G switch will work for you

    this depends on the number of ports you expect to have in your SAN. i think 6505 or 6510 will be good for you, but please note that it's best to have dual redundant SAN, which means that you'll need a pair of devices.

    Hi,

     

    I do not have production environment. We have to use this switch for storage testing project. I want 48 ports FC switch.

     

    Shall I distinguish this one switch in two, so that I can connect two different storages to one switch?

     

    Thanks

    48 ports >>> buy a 6510

     

    Shall I distinguish this one switch in two, so that I can connect two different storages to one switch?

     

    ^^^that's per your own requirements, compatibility, budget, need to haves, nice to haves etcetc.

    In essence you can connect as many storage to 1 switch as you have ports available.
