IBM Flex System EN4091 10Gb Ethernet Pass-Thru Module

Highlights

The data center is changing. To efficiently network today, IT has to move from a discrete, traditional operating design to a more flexible and optimized model. This smarter model must support more workloads and operate under flat or decreasing IT budgets, so it is crucial that the platform has the ability to adapt to increased demands.


The network architecture on the IBM® Flex System™ platform has been specifically designed to address these challenges, giving you a very scalable way to integrate, optimize and automate your data center. The Flex System EN4091 10Gb Ethernet Pass-Thru Module offers easy connectivity of the Flex System Chassis to any external network infrastructure. This unmanaged device enables direct connectivity of the compute node in the chassis to an external top-of-rack data center switch. This module can function at both 1 Gb and 10 Gb. It has fourteen internal 10 Gb links, and fourteen external 10 Gb SFP+ uplinks.
