Blade Networks BN-8124R-BDL G8124 24-port 10GbE Switch with Rear-to-Front airflow
Two power cords, Rack mount ears, Serial cable The BLADE Network Technologies’ RackSwitch™ G8124 is a 10GbE switch specifically designed for the data center, providing a Virtual, Cooler and Easier network solution. The RackSwitch G8124 is ?Virtual?- for the first time providing rack-level virtualization of networking interfaces for a rack full of server and storage systems. Patent-pending VMready™ software enables movement of virtual machines—providing matching movement of VLAN assignments, ACLs, and other networking and security settings. Using VMready, the trusted zone for the virtual machine is never compromised. The RackSwitch G8124 is ?Cooler?- implementing server-like directional cooling to maximize datacenter layout and provisioning. Its superior airflow design complements the hot-aisle and cold-aisle data center cooling model. The RackSwitch G8124 is ?Easier? with server-oriented provisioning via point-and-click management interfaces, along with BLADEHarmony™ Manager for updating large groups of switches. The low latency offered by the RackSwitch G8124 makes it ideal for latency sensitive applications such as high performance computing clusters and financial applications. And the G8124 supports the newest protocols – including Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) for support of Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). The RackSwitch G8124 offers 24 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a 1 RU footprint. Designed with top performance in mind, the RackSwitch G8124 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 ensure that the RackSwitch G8124 is always available for business-sensitive traffic.
