HPE 691367-B21 40GBE 28Port Virtual Connect FLEXFABRIC-20/40 F8 Module
The HPE 691367-B21 is a 40GB Ethernet 28-Port Virtual Connect FLEXFABRIC-20/40 F8 Module For C-Class Bladesystem. It reduces up to 95 percent of network sprawl at the server edge with one device that converges all traffic inside enclosures and directly connects to lans and sans. Based on open standards with 40gbe uplinks and 20gbe downlinks it addresses growing bandwidth needs in private and public cloud environments in a cost effective manner. It has 90 Days Warranty.
Simplify the server edge with 95% consolidation and faster deployment of network connections
The HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module reduces up to 95% of hardware needed to connect servers to networks. Using only two of these modules to connect an enclosure of HP server blades to both data and storage networks, you can reduce multiple switches, cards and cables. It gives you the advantage of 4:1 consolidation of interconnect equipment. Each Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 Module can replace up to three 10GbE based switches and one 8 Gb Fiber Channel switch in an HP BladeSystem enclosure.
Flexibly configure of your network and storage connections, fine tune your performance
The HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module provides one flexible interconnect interface to any network. One device supports most common data center networks protocols like; Ethernet, Fiber Channel (FC), FCoE and iSCSI. Fine-tune the performance of each data and storage connection to meet the needs of each of your virtual machines and targeted workloads. Connect to servers using full hardware offload of iSCSI and FCoE protocol processing minimizing the impact on host CPU performance to increase storage connection performance.
Upgrade your network with investment protection and no process changes
The HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module is 100% compatible with current networks: seamless connection to existing industry standard data and storage networks avoids having to replace each piece of equipment. One standard for all connection needs: one Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module meets any data and storage connection need with license-free, multi-protocol support for Ethernet, Fiber Channel (FC), Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Accelerated iSCSI connections.
