System Networking RackSwitch G8052


The RackSwitch™ G8052 is an Ethernet switch specifically designed for the data center, providing a virtualized, cool and easy network solution.

The RackSwitch G8052 is virtualized—supporting VMready® technology, an innovative, standards-based solution to manage virtual machines (VMs) in small to large-scale data center and cloud environments. VMready works with all leading VM providers.

The RackSwitch G8052 is cool—implementing a choice of directional cooling to maximize data center layout and provisioning. Its superior airflow design complements the hot-aisle and cold-aisle data center cooling model.

The RackSwitch G8052 is easy—with server-oriented provisioning via point-and-click management interfaces, along with the optional System Networking Switch Center software package for updating large groups of switches.

The RackSwitch G8052 offers 48×1 Gigabit Ethernet ports and four standard (no uplink module necessary) 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a 1U footprint. Designed with top performance in mind, the G8052 provides line-rate, high-bandwidth switching, filtering, and traffic queuing without delaying data, and large data-center-grade buffers to keep traffic moving. Redundant power and fans, along with numerous high-availability features, mean that the G8052 is always available for business-sensitive traffic.
