My question was specific - and with a reason. Julo

Julo, 
  
I am not sure what you are asking for. 
Are you asking for a reference to a 1,000+ port SAN? 
Today there are multiple FC switches on the market with 256 ports. 
With six switches it is easy to realize a 1,000+ port SAN? 
  
Are you trying to tell me that 6 FC switches cannot be connected
together?

Please send this community a reference of a 1000+ node datacenter using
FCP as a single fabric.

Eddy,

In Fibre Channel credits are only point-to-point and FC networks work
well for datacenter environments.

Where is the difference?
