HIGH-PERFORMANCE ETHERNET & CONVERGED NETWORKING SWITCHES

Get on-demand scalability and flexible port mapping for dynamic configuration of active ports in these industry-standard ports, which offer simple interoperability with existing networks.

  1. Offers easy connectivity & reduced management & setup time. Flexible port mapping enables dynamic configuration of active ports. Conforms to industry standards. Interoperates with existing networks. Uses a pre-configured loop-free interface that does not rely upon spanning tree protocols.

  2. Enables a simplified integration of Flex System into your existing networking infrastructure. The default configuration requires no management for most data center environments, which eliminates the need to configure each device or individual port & reduces the number of management points.

  3. Unmatched Ethernet scalability & performance. Flexible port mapping enables dynamic configuration of active ports. Conforms to industry standards. Interoperates with existing networks.

  4. Unsurpassed convergence flexibility, scalability, & performance. Upstream ability to connect at 1/10/40 Gb Ethernet or 8 Gb Fibre Channel. Flexible port mapping offers dynamic configuration of active ports.

  5. Supports clustered databases, parallel processing, transactional services, & high-performance embedded I/O applications. Reduces task completion time & lowers cost per operation.

  6. Easy connectivity of the Flex System Chassis to any external network infrastructure. Unmanaged device enables direct connectivity of the compute node in the chassis to an external top-of-rack data center switch.

  7. Outstanding flexibility. Buy one switch today & enhance its functionality in the future. Supports high availability with switch-failover capability. Flexible port mapping enables dynamic configuration of active ports. Conforms to industry standards. Interoperates with existing networks.

  8. Extends the Cisco Nexus fabric to the Flex System chassis. Aggregates network connections of all Flex System nodes to upstream Cisco Nexus Switch. Adds new options for Cisco-centric networking Organisations. Uses Cisco Nexus Technology & copper breakout cables.
