HPE 10GbE Ethernet Pass-Thru Module for c-Class BladeSystem
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.
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.
