5.10. Typical Hewlett-Packard FC Topologies

Figure 5-27. Hewlett-Packard FC Mass Storage Topology

This topology demonstrates how to attach to one host, using one I/O adapter, four mass storage devices, for example two Fibre Channel disk arrays and two SCSI tape devices, possibly DLT tape libraries, through a hub.
