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?

 

-- Silvano

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?
