Intelligent switches have been in development since the early part of this decade and have gone through development cycles that have now resulted in offerings that provide superior performance and scalability.
Some intelligent switches also support enhanced authentication, including 802.
With intra-shelf switching, embed a pair of switches into each JBOD, converting it into an SBOD (switched bunch of disks).
In SAN environments where higher storage scalability is a priority, a combination of hubs and switches can be utilized to construct a two-tiered SAN.
SAN administrators must be able attach any device, regardless of its fabric-aware status, to Fibre Channel switches.
These devices can operate in a fully synchronous configuration of parallel chipsets, which makes multiple-hundred gigabit switches cost-effective and easier to design.
As SAN implementations mature, they will likely consist of one or more switches connecting servers, disk drives, and, eventually, tape drives.
