Industry-leading 25 / 50 / 100Gb scalability and performance. Delivers more speed for Cloud, SAP, Big Data and Database Flex System applications paired with ThinkSystem QLogic 10 / 25 / 50GbE adapters for low latency.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
