Overview
HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module for c-Class BladeSystem
HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Modules are the simplest, most flexible way to connect virtualized server blades to data
or storage networks. VC FlexFabric-20/40 F8 modules eliminate up to 95% of network sprawl at the server edge with one device
that converges traffic inside enclosures and directly connects to external LANs and SANs. Using Flex-10 and Flex-20 technology
with Fibre Channel over Ethernet and accelerated iSCSI, these modules converge traffic over high-speed 10Gb/20Gb connections to
servers with HPE FlexFabric Adapters. Each redundant pair of Virtual Connect FlexFabric modules provide eight adjustable
downlink connections ( six Ethernet and two Fibre Channel, or six Ethernet and two iSCSI or eight Ethernet) to dual-port 10Gb/20Gb
FlexFabric Adapters on each server. Up to twelve uplinks with eight Flexport and four QSFP+ interfaces, without splitter cables, are
available for connection to upstream Ethernet and Fibre Channel switches. Including splitter cables up to 24 uplinks are available for
connection to upstream Ethernet and Fibre Channel. VC FlexFabric-20/40 F8 modules 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 or weeks.
