Wouldn’t you like to reduce the miles of cabling required to attach your servers to the network?
HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module is one of the simplest, most converged and flexible ways to connect virtualized server blades to your data or storage network. It reduces up to 95% of network sprawl at the server edge with one device that converges all traffic inside enclosures and directly connects to LANs and SANs. Based on open standards with 40GbE uplinks and 20GbE downlinks it addresses growing bandwidth needs in private and public cloud environments in a cost effective manner.
Do you need to simplify the way to connect your servers with the SAN? The HPE Virtual Connect 16Gb 24-port Fibre Channel Module for c-Class BladeSystem is a new class of blade interconnect that simplifies server connections by cleanly separating the server enclosure from the SAN. It simplifies the process of connecting servers to Fibre Channel networks by reducing cables and your SAN switch management domain, and by allowing you to change servers in minutes. You can reduce costs and simplify connections to SANs, consolidate your network connections, and enable administrators to add, replace and recover server resources on-the-fly. Being standards-based, it looks like a pass-thru device to the Fibre Channel network, yet provides all the key benefits of integrated switching including high performance 16 Gb uplinks to the SAN. The integrated design frees up rack space, reduces power and cooling requirements, while reducing cables and utilizing small form-factor pluggable transmitters.
HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb/24-port Modules are the simplest, most converged and flexible way to connect virtualized server blades to any data or storage network. VC FlexFabric modules eliminate up to 95% of network sprawl at the server edge with one device that converges traffic inside enclosures and directly connects to LANs and SANs.
Using Flex-10 technology with Fibre Channel over Ethernet and Accelerated iSCSI, these modules converge traffic over high speed 10 Gb connections to servers with HPE FlexFabric Adapters. Each module provides four adjustable connections (three data and one storage or all data) to each 10 Gb server port.
Avoid the confusion of traditional and other converged network solutions by eliminating the need for multiple Ethernet and Fibre Channel switches, extension modules, cables and software licenses. Also, Virtual Connect wire-once connection management is built-in, enabling server adds, moves, and replacement in minutes instead of days.
