The BLADE Network Technologies' (BNT) Virtual Fabric 10Gb G8124 RackSwitch for IBM System x delivers exceptional performance that is both lossless and low latency. In addition, the G8124 delivers excellent cost savings as you consider acquisition costs, energy costs, plus its feature-rich design with when it comes to virtualization, CEE/FCoE, high availability, and its enterprise class Layer 2 and Layer 3 functionality.

High performance
The 10 G low latency (<700 nanoseconds) switch provides the best combination of extremely low latency, non-blocking line-rate switching and ease of management.

Lower power and better cooling
The G8124 uses as little power as two 60 W light bulbs, which is a fraction of the power consumption of most competitive offerings. Unlike side-cooled switches, which can cause heat recirculation and reliability concerns, the G8124's rear-to-front cooling design reduces data center air conditioning costs by having airflow match the servers in the rack. In addition, variable speed fans assist in automatically reducing power consumption.

Virtual fabric
Can help customers address I/O requirements for multiple NIC's while also helping reduce cost and complexity. Virtual Fabric for IBM allows for the carving up of a physical NIC into multiple virtual NICs (2 - 8 vNICs) and creates a virtual pipe between the adapter and the switch for improved performance, availability, and security while reducing cost and complexity.

VM aware networking
VMready software on the switch helps reduce configuration complexity while significantly improving security levels in virtualized environments. VMready automatically detects virtual machine movement from one physical server to another, and instantly reconfigures each VM's network policies across VLANs to keep the network up and running without interrupting traffic or impacting performance. VMready works with all leading VM providers such as VMware, Citrix, Xen, and Microsoft.

Layer 3 functionality
The switch 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.

Active MultiPath (AMP)
Effectively doubles bandwidth by allowing all uplink ports to be active/active, eliminating cross-stack traffic and providing up to 900 Gbps aggregate bandwidth between servers. Built-in fault tolerance constant health checking ensures maximum availability.

Seamless interoperability
IBM switches interoperate seamlessly with other vendors' upstream switches.

Fault tolerance
These switches learn alternate routes automatically and perform faster convergence in the unlikely case of a link, switch, or power failure. The switch uses proven technologies, such as L2 trunk failover, advanced VLAN-based failover, VRRP, HotLink, Uplink Failure Detection (UFD), IGMP V3 snooping, and OSPF.

Converged fabric
The switch is designed to support CEE and connectivity to FCoE gateways. CEE helps enable clients to combine storage, messaging traffic, VoIP, video, and other data on a common data center Ethernet infrastructure. FCoE helps enable highly efficient block storage over Ethernet for consolidating server network connectivity. As a result, clients can deploy a single server interface for multiple data types, which can simplify both deployment and management of server network connectivity, while maintaining the high availability and robustness required for storage transactions.


Product Highlights
  • The G8124 switch is designed to support a number of separate types of configurations from a server or downstream switches
  • The G8124 is designed to support data center bridging (DCB)
  • IBM Virtual Fabric helps clients reduce costs and complexity in environments where they need four or more NICs per server
