The Virtual Fabric 10Gb Switch Module offers the following benefits:
Integration and consolidation : This switch consolidates full Layer 2-3 LAN switching and routing
capabilities into a single BladeCenter chassis. This helps flatten the data center infrastructure and
reduces the number of discrete devices, management consoles, and equipment that administrators
must deal with, helping lower costs and simplifying deployment.
Cost: The switch is priced extremely competitively compared with external switches, especially
when you factor in that no cables are required between the blade and the switch. In addition, the
ability to use direct-attach cables with the switch can help clients save even more compared with
the more expensive CX4, XFP, or X2 transceivers.
Performance: With support for ten 10 Gb uplinks, clients can exploit not only up to 200 Gbps of bi-
directional uplink bandwidth, but also an extremely low oversubscription (14 to 10), which can
support even the most performance-intensive environments (up to 7.2 Gbps per blade server port).
Clients wanting extreme performance can use up to four switches and the quad port 10 Gb adapter
and get up to 1.92 Tbps of data per BladeCenter H chassis.
Lower power consumption: Using only 75 W per switch delivers extreme performance per watt,
which is second to none with its support for up to 6.4 Gbps per watt of power.
Layer 3 functionality: The switch module includes Layer 3 functionality, which provides security
and performance benefits as inter-VLAN traffic stays within the chassis. This switch also provides
the full range of Layer 3 protocols from static routes for technologies such as Open Shortest Path
First (OSPF) and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) for enterprise customers.
