IBM RackSwitch G8264
Stacking—A single switch image and configuration file can be used for up to eight switches, sharing only one IP address and one management interface
Built with top performance in mind, the IBM® RackSwitch™ G8264 is ideal for today’s big data, cloud and optimized workloads. It is an enterprise-class and full-featured data-center switch that delivers line-rate, high-bandwidth switching, filtering, and traffic queuing without delaying data. Large data-center grade buffers keep traffic moving. Redundant power and fans along with numerous high availability features equips the switch for business-sensitive traffic. The G8264 supports IBM VMready® technology, an innovative, standards-based solution to manage virtual machines (VMs) in small to large-scale data center and cloud environments.
The RackSwitch G8264 is ideal for latency-sensitive applications such as high performance computing clusters and financial applications and is a key piece when connecting multiple chassis together with Pure System Solutions. The G8264 supports stacking for up to eight switches for simplified switch management as well as IBM Virtual Fabric to enable clients to diminish the number of I/O adapters buy creating virtual NIC’s out of a 10 Gb adapter, helping reduce cost and complexity. The G8264 supports the newest protocols—including Data Center Bridging/Converged Enhanced Ethernet (DCB/CEE) for support of Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), in addition to iSCSI and NAS
