IBM System Networking RackSwitch

Connecting Servers, Storage and Networks

Data centres can standardise on a unified and affordable rack-level, or top of rack, network infrastructure to provision and scale out Web 2.0 environments, high-performance clusters and virtualised data centres. IBM's Ethernet RackSwitch family is designed to bring speed and intelligence to the edge of your network; where it's closer to your business, users and innovations. IBM's top of rack products are lossless, low latency and low power.

I/O virtualisation

Virtual Fabric for IBM
System x

IBM Virtual fabric is a fast, flexible, reliable I/O solution that helps reduce cost and complexity in both virtualised and non-virtualised environments.

Virtual: Multiple virtual ports (Ethernet) from a single physical port
Performance: Fast line-rate 10Gb performance
Scalability: Define exact number of ports needed (from 2 to 8 per adapter)
Flexibility: Each virtual port operates anywhere between 100Mb and 10Gb
Reliability: Intelligent Failure Monitoring to enable automatic failover between physical or virtual ports
