Wouldn’t you like to consolidate legacy hierarchical architectures based on north/south designs with oversubscription bottlenecks into a flat, east/west architecture to increase data throughput and reduce latency with only a single hop within large domains of virtual machines or compute modules?
The HPE Synergy 40Gb F8 Switch Module primary module, based on composable fabric is designed for Composable Infrastructure. Its disaggregated, rack-scale design uses a primary/satellite architecture to consolidate data center network connections, reduce hardware and scale network bandwidth across multiple Synergy frames. This primary module, contains managed switch networking capabilities that extend connectivity to satellite frames through Synergy Interconnect Link Modules that decreases top of rack switch needs and substantially reduces cost. The reduction in components also simplifies fabric management while consuming fewer ports at the data center aggregation layer.

The HPE Virtual Connect SE 40Gb F8 Module for HPE Synergy, primary module, based on composable fabric is designed for Composable Infrastructure. Its disaggregated, rack-scale design uses a primary/satellite architecture to consolidate data center network connections, reduce hardware and scale network bandwidth across multiple HPE Synergy Frames.
The primary module contains intelligent networking capabilities that extends connectivity to satellite frames through Interconnect Link Modules. This decreases top of rack switch needs and substantially reduces costs. The components reduction simplifies fabric management at scale while consuming fewer ports at the data center aggregation layer.
Do you need to simplify the way to connect your compute modules with the SAN? The HPE Virtual Connect SE 16Gb Fibre Channel Module for HPE Synergy is a SAN interconnect that simplifies Synergy Compute Module connections by cleanly separating the frame from the SAN. It simplifies the process of connecting Synergy modules to Fibre Channel networks by reducing cables and your SAN switch management domain, and change Synergy Compute Modules in minutes. You can reduce costs and simplify connections to SANs, consolidate your network connections, and enable administrators to add, replace and recover Synergy Compute Module resources on-the-fly. 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.
How can data center infrastructure be managed like ‘infrastructure as code’?
HPE Synergy Composer provides native infrastructure management for efficiently matching compute, storage, and fabric resources to meet any workload. ‘Infrastructure as code’ capability provides on-demand delivery and support of applications and services with consistent governance, compliance, and integration. This is a paradigm shift in managing infrastructure. Software-defined architecture auto-discovers and self-assimilates HPE Synergy resources for immediate use with template-driven operations. This intelligence increases the speed, efficiency, and reliability of operations. HPE Composer deploys, monitors, and updates the infrastructure from a single interface or from the Unified API. HPE Synergy infrastructure supports virtualized, containerized, and bare metal workloads for traditional and cloud environments. Resources can be updated, flexed, and redeployed with minimal service interruptions.
Can HPE Synergy provision physical servers at cloud-like speed? Using HPE Synergy Image Streamer, you can rapidly change images on multiple compute nodes in an automated manner. HPE Synergy Image Streamer works with HPE Synergy Composer to rapidly deploy and update multiple physical compute nodes. Operating environment images for bare-metal use might boot directly into a running OS, or virtual machine (VM) hosts might perform quick image changeovers. This 'infrastructure-as-code' capability maximizes your return on your systems investment by quickly delivering applications and services and by enabling rapid workload switching (across Linux, ESX, or MS Windows). Enhanced profiles provide true stateless images, which are automatically integrated with server hardware configurations and operating environment images for simplicity of use. Programmatic access is also provided through the Unified API. Integrate, automate, and customize your operations using HPE Synergy Image Streamer.
Do you need flexible storage resources in your HPE Synergy 12000 Frame?
The HPE Synergy D3940 Storage Module provides a fluid pool of storage resources for the Composable Infrastructure. Additional capacity for compute modules is easily provisioned and intelligently managed with integrated data services for availability and protection. The 40 SFF drive bays per storage module can be populated with 12 G SAS or 6 G SATA drives. Expand up to 4 storage modules in a single Synergy 12000 Frame for a total of 200 drives.
Any drive bay can be zoned to any compute module for efficient use of capacity without fixed ratios. Use HPE StoreVirtual VSA to create virtualized software-defined storage resources to be among frames. A second HPE Synergy D3940 I/O Adapter provides a redundant path to disks inside the storage module for high data availability. The HPE Synergy D3940 Storage Module and HPE Synergy 12Gb SAS Connection Module are performance optimized in a non-blocking 12Gb/s SAS fabric.
Do your datacenter systems provide continuous uptime with security – while allowing for future growth?
HPE Synergy Frame Link Modules provide basic management functions for HPE Synergy Frames like auto-discovery of resources and health-status monitoring to keep your systems up and running. Security is enhanced by separating the data network from the management network and by a variety of capabilities like Hardware Root of Trust, Secure Start, and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) file encryption. HPE Synergy Frame Link Modules also link multiple frames together into a management ring to scale your single management environment for future growth (up to 21 frames).
Does limited network bandwidth create a performance bottleneck in your hybrid IT environment?
The Mellanox SH2200 Switch Module for HPE Synergy delivers high-performance, high-speed, low latency 25/50GbE connectivity to each of the Synergy compute nodes, and 40/100GbE to upstream network switches. The module delivers up to 2.8 Tbps switching capacity and 8.4 BPPS throughput for the most demanding data center applications. It offers advanced and comprehensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 feature sets, as well as hardware-based network virtualization support. Network reliability is improved with resilient fabric connectivity to upstream switches using Multi-module LAG (MLAG) technology to reduce single points of failure.
