Switches
Product Guide
The Lenovo Flex Systemâ„¢ FC5022 16Gb SAN Scalable Switch offerings are Gen 5 Fibre Channel (FC)
embedded modules for Lenovo Flex System. With up to 48 ports that operate at 16 and 8 Gbps FC speeds,
each module provides up to 28 internal ports to compute nodes through the Flex System midplane and up
to 20 external SFP+ ports.
The FC5022 SAN switch modules deliver unmatched scalability and flexibility for Flex System users wanting
to connect directly into 8 or 16 Gbps FC storage or to an upstream storage area network (SAN). The FC5022
can be configured in the Access Gateway mode using NPIV for simple upstream connectivity or in the Full
Fabric more for more advance switching as a part of the larger Fibre Channel fabric.
The switch offers end-to-end 16 Gb with backwards compatibility to 8 Gb and 4 Gb to the SAN
connectivity. Monitoring and management are simplified using end-to-end Brocade tools, such as Web
Tools and the Brocade Network Advisor (BNA).

Did you know?
Only the FC5022 provides up to 48 FC ports in an embedded form factor which provides Flex System a
unique differentiation in the market, including the following:
Increased I/O density: Support for 64 Gbps per compute node with only a pair of FC5022 switches
can help clients reduce costs on hardware, utility costs and management or operational costs with
fewer devices.
Greater reliability: When used with 4-port FC mezzanine adapters, the 28 internal ports enable
increased solution availability with greater path redundancy from the ASICs to the modules for no
single point of failure.
Multi-chassis scalability: The 20 external SFP+ ports allow for scaling up to 18 chassis without the
use of external FC switches, such as FC top-of-rack (ToR) switches, thereby greatly reducing the
overall cost of the Flex System solution.
