Simplify and make your data center change-ready. The Virtual Connect 8Gb 24-Port Fiber Channel Module is a high class of blade interconnect that simplifies server connections by cleanly separating the server enclosure from the SAN, simplifies networks by reducing cables without adding switches to manage, and allows you to change servers or move workloads in just minutes. With virtual connect, businesses can reduce costs and simplify connections to LANs and SANs, consolidate their network connections and enable administrators to add, replace and recover server resources on-the-fly. The standards-based Virtual Connect 8Gb 24-Port Fiber Channel Module looks like a pass-thru device to the network, yet provides all the key benefits of integrated switching including high performance 8Gb uplinks to the SAN. The integrated design frees up rack space, reduces power and cooling requirements, and reduces cables and small form-factor pluggables.


Product Highlights
  • 8) 2/4/8Gb auto-negotiating fiber channel uplinks connected to external SAN switches
  • 16) 1/2/4/8Gb auto-negotiating fiber channel downlink ports provide maximum HBA performance
  • HBA aggregation on uplinks ports using ANSI T11 standards-based N Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) technology
  • Allows up to 255 virtual machines running on the same physical server to access separate storage resources
  • Extremely low latency throughput provides switch-like performance
  • Storage management is no longer constrained to a single physical HBA on a server blade
  • Managed with the virtual connect Ethernet module
  • Does not add to SAN switch domains or require traditional SAN management
  • Appears as a pass-thru device to the SAN manager
  • Provisioned storage resource is associated directly to a specific virtual machine - even if the virtual server is re-allocated within the BladeSystem
  • Ability to pre-configure server I/O connections
  • Ability to move, add, or change servers on the fly
