Cisco Nexus 5020 with FCoE Storage Services License Converged Network Switch(AP776A)
Customer rating and reviews for Cisco Nexus 5020 with FCoE Storage Services License Converged Network Switch
Price and buy
Data centers are increasingly filled with dense rack-mount and blade servers that host powerful multi-core processors. This is pushing demand for 10 Gigabit Ethernet and consolidated I/O; applications for which the HP Nexus 5000 Converged Network Switches are the perfect match. With low latency, front-to-back cooling, and rear-facing ports, this family of datacenter switches is designed for transitioning to 10 Gigabit Ethernet and deploying a unified fabric that can handle LAN, SAN, and server cluster networks over a single link.; Supports line-rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet on all ports while maintaining consistently low latency. IEEE Data Center Bridging capabilities increase the reliability, efficiency, and scalability of Ethernet networks. These features allow support of multiple traffic classes over a lossless Ethernet fabric, thus enabling consolidation of LAN, SAN, and cluster environments.
HP Nexus 5000 6-port 8Gb FC Module for improved fibre channel performance
Convergence and Compatibility - Uses High Performance and Compatibility with Existing LANs and SANs
Enables network I/O convergence at the rack level. It is a straightforward encapsulation of Fibre Channel within Ethernet that preserves existing Fibre Channel network management models and tools, helping protect investments in software and staff training.
Can be deployed as a Top-of-Rack, access-layer switch in parallel with existing Fibre Channel SANs.
High port density, lossless Ethernet, wire-speed performance, and extremely low latency makes the switch an ideal product to meet the growing demand for 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
Transparently encapsulates Fibre Channel packets into Ethernet enabling I/O consolidation at the rack level to significantly reduce network-related cabling, power, and cooling costs.
Energy Efficient - Lowers Data Center Carbon Footprint
Energy efficiency achieved through the use of the HP Nexus 5000 Converged Network Switches helps data centers operate within their space, power, and cooling parameters while reducing their carbon footprints.
Reduces the number of server adapters, switches, and transceivers, all of which consume power and require cooling.
Designed for energy efficiency. Variable-speed fans consume only the amount of power necessary to cool the chassis at any point in time. The switch power supplies are sized to maintain 90 percent efficiency at only 25 percent utilization, making efficient use of power in best-case scenarios.
Reduces Capital Outlays and Operating Expense
Capability to manage Ethernet and FCoE features independently with existing storage and IP network tools preserves existing management models, best practices, and investments in staff training.
Helps reduce capital and operating costs by reducing the number of server adapters, cables, and upstream switches needed to support I/O at the rack level.
