The IBM System Networking RackSwitch G8264 delivers exceptional performance, being both lossless and low latency. In addition, the G8264 also delivers excellent cost savings as you consider acquisition costs, energy costs, operational expenses, and ease of use and management. It has a feature-rich design with key virtualization features such as CEE/FCoE, high availability, and enterprise class layer 2 and layer 3 functionalities.

The IBM RackSwitch G8264 supports both 10 Gb and 40 Gb Ethernet, and is suggested for clients using 10 Gb today with plans to include 40 Gb uplinks in the future. With 1.2 Tbps throughput, the G8264 provides massive scalability and low latency ideal for latency-sensitive applications such as high-performance computing clusters and financial applications.

The RackSwitch G8264 is ideal for latency sensitive applications such as high performance computing clusters and financial applications. In addition to the 10 GbE and 40 GbE connections, the G8264 also has the capability for legacy 1 GbE connections. The G8264 supports the protocols including Data Center Bridging/Converged Enhanced Ethernet (DCB/CEE) for support of fiber channel over Ethernet (FCoE) in addition to ISCSI and NAS.

The G8264 is also designed to support IBM virtual fabric, which helps clients significantly reduce cost and complexity related to I/O requirements of many virtualization deployments. Virtual fabric helps you reduce the number of multiple I/O adapters to a single dual-port 10 G adapter, and also to reduce the number of cables and required upstream switch ports.

High performance
The 10 Gb/40 Gb switch provides the best combination of low latency, non-blocking line-rate switching, and ease of management. It has a throughput of 1.28 Tbps.

Lower power and better cooling
The IBM RackSwitch G8264 uses as little as 275 W of power, 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 G8264's front-to-rear or 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 help to automatically reduce power consumption.

Stacking
With the G8264 a single switch image and configuration file can be used for up to eight switches, sharing only one IP address and one management interface.

Virtual fabric
Can help customers address I/O requirements for multiple NICs while reducing cost and complexity. Virtual fabric for IBM allows you to carve a physical NIC into multiple virtual NICs and to create a virtual pipe between the adapter and the switch for improved performance, availability, and security.

Layer 3 functionality
The G8264 includes layer 3 functionality, which provides security and performance benefits, as inter-VLAN traffic stays within the switch. 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.

Fault tolerance
These IBM 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 like L2 trunk failover, advanced VLAN-based failover, VRRP, and HotLink.

Converged fabric
The IBM 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.
