The eight-port Surestore Entry Switch FC switch--an HP-branded version of Brocade Communications' new Silkworm 3200 switch--lets customers build storage networks using the Fibre Channel networking technology. It has a starting cost of $5,599, HP said Tuesday. A higher-end version, with more sophisticated connections to other switches, costs $16,780 and up.
