Overview
HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb/24-port Modules are the simplest, most flexible way to connect virtualized server blades to data or
storage networks. VC FlexFabric 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 technology with Fibre Channel over Ethernet
and accelerated iSCSI, these modules converge traffic over high speed 10Gb connections to servers with HP FlexFabric Adapters (HP
NC551i or HP NC551m Dual Port FlexFabric 10Gb Converged Network Adapters or HP NC553i 10Gb 2-port FlexFabric Converged
Network Adapter). Each redundant pair of Virtual Connect FlexFabric modules provide 8 adjustable downlink connections ( six Ethernet
and two Fibre Channel, or six Ethernet and 2 iSCSI or eight Ethernet) to dual port10Gb FlexFabric Adapters on servers. Up to eight
uplinks are available for connection to upstream Ethernet and Fibre Channel switches. VC FlexFabric 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.

    Port mapping differs slightly between full height and half height server blades due to the support for additional Mezzanine cards on the full height version. HP has simplified the processes of mapping Mezzanine ports to switch ports by providing intelligent management tools via the Onboard Administrator and HP Insight Manager Software. The Onboard Administrator Guide and Enclosure Setup and Installation Guide provide detailed information on port mapping.
