The Cisco Fabric Extender for HPE BladeSystem (Model B22HP) provides an extension of the Cisco Nexus switch fabric to the HPE server edge. Logically, it behaves like a remote line card to a parent Cisco Nexus 5000 series switch, with the Fabric Extender and the parent Nexus together forming a distributed modular system. The Cisco Fabric Extender for HPE BladeSystem forwards traffic to the parent Cisco Nexus switch over eight 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks.
Low-cost uplink connections up to 10 meters can be made with copper Twin-ax cable, and longer connections up to 100 meters can use optional Fabric Extender Transceivers. Standard 10Gb SFP+ optics are also supported.
Downlinks to each server are auto-negotiating and work with all HPE Ethernet and CNA modules allowing a choice of Ethernet, FCoE or iSCSI connections. Passing all traffic seamlessly to the Nexus 5000 allows traffic to be shaped according to policies established by the Nexus 5000 Series Switch with a single point of management.
The Mellanox SX1018HPE Ethernet Switch is the highest-performing Ethernet fabric solution in a blade switch form factor. It delivers up to 1.36 Tb/s of non-blocking throughput perfect for High-Performance Computing, Storage/Hadoop applications, Telecommunications/Carrier, Oil/Gas, Service Providers, Financial Services, and Cloud/Hyperscale environments
The SX1018HPE is an ultra-low latency switch that is ideally suited as an access switch providing InfiniBand like performance with sixteen 10 Gb/40 Gb server side downlinks and eighteen 40 Gb QSFP+ uplinks to the core with port to port latency as low as 220 ns.
Mellanox SX1018HPE Ethernet Switch has a rich set of Layer 2 networking and security features and supports faster application performance and enhanced server CPU utilization with RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), making this switch the perfect solution for any high performance Ethernet network.
The HPE 1Gb Ethernet Pass-Thru Module for c-Class BladeSystem is designed for those customers desiring an unmanaged direct connection between each server blade within the enclosure and an external network device such as a switch, router or hub. Ideal for datacenters with existing network infrastructure, the HPE 1Gb Ethernet Pass-Thru Module delivers sixteen internal 1Gb downlinks and sixteen external 1Gb RJ-45 copper uplinks, providing a 1:1 non-switched, non-blocking path between the server and the network. Designed to fit into a single I/O bay of the c-Class enclosure, the Ethernet Pass-Thru Module should be installed in pairs to provide redundant uplink paths to your network.
The 4Gb Fibre Channel Pass-Thru Module for HPE c-Class BladeSystem is designed for those customers desiring a direct connection between each server blade within the enclosure and external Fibre Channel SAN switches, directors, or SAN controllers.
Ideal investment protection for datacenters with existing storage networking infrastructure, the HPE Fibre Channel Pass-Thru Module delivers up to sixteen 4Gb Fiber Optic IO connections providing a 1:1 non-switched, non-blocking paths between the server blade and the SAN. The modular design is hot pluggable and easily installs into the I/O bays of the c-Class enclosure. Installing a pair of Fibre Channel Pass-Thru Modules provides redundant paths for connection to your SAN.
Do you need a 1Gb switch that increases your data center efficiency and capability?
Designed for the c-Class BladeSystem enclosure, the HPE 6125G Ethernet Blade Switch appeals to budget-conscious data centers that need 1Gb switching and routing with the resiliency of Intelligent Resilient Networking (IRF), stacking, and the stability of Comware. It is ideal for remote office applications, or wherever IPv6, full Layer 3 routing and distributed trunking are required for 1Gb applications.
HPE 10GbE Ethernet Pass-Thru Module for c-Class BladeSystem
Do you have a complex data center that requires a demanding networking infrastructure?
It all starts at the edge and that’s where the HPE 6127XLG Ethernet Blade Switch excels. The 6127XLG Ethernet Blade Switch is designed to support virtualized server environments with exceptional bandwidth of 20GbE to each and every server, while providing a mix of 40GbE and 10GbE links (with an astounding aggregate of 240 Gb) to the core network. Combined with hardware support for VXLAN encapsulation, this provides the perfect switch for Private/Public/Hybrid Cloud applications. Enterprise customers will not be disappointed with the 6127XLG Ethernet Blade Switch as it provides a converged fabric solution that supports Ethernet, iSCSI, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and Fibre Channel Forwarder (FCF) protocols enabling connectivity for multiple storage topologies. A full complement of Layer 2/3 protocols and the latest in network security features round out this most capable of blade switches.
