Many clients today are connecting Ethernet and Fibre Channel from their servers into their data and storage networks. As a result IT organizations are looking for ways to reduce the cost and complexity of these environments by leveraging the capabilities that exist today with 10/40 Gb Ethernet and/or 8 Gb Fibre Channel. Some solutions require a complete rip-n-replace of existing infrastructure. The IBM® Flex System® Fabric CN4093 10 Gb Converged Scalable Switch is an ideal solution for clients with these concerns because it can fit into their existing infrastructure and offers the benefits of a converged infrastructure today, plus it can scale with their needs in the future. The CN4093 supports multiple protocols like Ethernet, FCoE, FC and iSCSI. With multi-protocol support it can connect directly to the IBM integrated storage node, offering an integrated solution that is easy to setup and manage or to an external SAN.
Provides unsurpassed convergence flexibility, scalability and performance, while delivering networking innovations to help clients address today’s converged networking requirement and their potential future needs.
