HP StorageWorks 4/256 Nears End-Of-Support Date

In May 2005, Brocade® introduced its then flagship 48000 director, a 4 Gbps director with an eight (8) blade capacity, each blade capable of attaching up to 48 ports, for a total capacity of 384 ports. HP re-branded the 48K and sold it as the HP StorageWorks 4/256 SAN Switch. It was designed by Brocade® to compete with McData® and Cisco® its two main rivals (at the time) in the director space. Back then the HP StorageWorks 4/256 was “state of the art”. Now it is a bit old – legacy if you will – and was designated End-of-Life in January 2011 roughly five and one half years after its introduction. Soon, February 1, 2016, the HP StorageWorks 4/256 SAN Switch will reach its End-of-Support date with HP.
