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 CN4058 10 Gb Converged Adapter scales to up to 6 10 Gb physical ports, It helps provide a way to reduce data center costs by using a common infrastructure for Ethernet and storage networks.
The adapter is a single physical mezzanine card which logically can be treated as two adapters. This provides additional configuration flexibility to more easily support redundant copies of VIOS (Virtual Input/Output Server).
The IBM Flex System CN4058 10 Gb Converged Adapter supports multiple advanced protocols for POWER-based IBM Flex System compute nodes. It helps provide a way to reduce data center costs by using a common infrastructure for Ethernet and storage networks.
