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?
