HPE0-J76 question 41 discussion


You are designing a new SAN fabric for a customer who requires a high performance and
port-efficient network with many-to-marry connectivity. Which type of SAN topology should
you recommend?

  • A. core-edge fabric
  • B. cascaded fabric
  • C. meshed fabric
  • D. single-switch fabric

I would say A, based on the chart in the study book (page 172), core-edge is ranked highest in performance, for distributed (many-to-many), while C/meshed is just ranked "high"


Agreed. The SAN Design reference guide doesnt mention anything about port efficiency being better between one or the other. It does, like you said, mention the best topology data performance being highest with the 3:1 and 1:1 Core-Edge Fabric design.
