As the deployment of server virtualization technologies becomes more prevalent within data centers, more dynamic performance is needed to provide sufficient network I/O bandwidth to satisfy these demands. With Virtual Fabric, IBM can help you break the I/O bottleneck by allowing you to allocate bandwidth where needed, delivering maximum application agility. Offering a full range of virtualization and convergence capabilities, the same network hardware can act as Ethernet, iSCSI, or FCoE, and bandwidth can be allocated in increments from 100Mb to 1Gb. Choose the Emulex adapter and IBM BNT switch for advanced virtualization capabilities, or combine the Broadcom adapter with either of our Brocade or Cisco 10Gb switches for general-purpose virtual fabric capabilities.
