IBM G8124E Ultra low-latency, high-performance 10 Gb top-of-rack switch
100% line-rate performance
Ultralow latency of 570 nanoseconds
480 Gbps non-blocking switching throughput (full duplex)
Twenty-four 10 G SFP+ fiber connectors
2 × 10/100/1000 Ethernet RJ45 and 1 mini-USB port for management
The G8124E is a 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch specifically designed for the data center, providing a virtualized, cooler and easier network solution. The G8124E offers twenty-four 10 GbE ports in a high-density, 1U footprint. The G8124E is designed with ultra-low latency and top performance in mind. Redundant power and fans, along with numerous
high-availability features, mean that the G8124E is always available for business-sensitive traffic.
Take advantage of the economy and performance of lossless
Ethernet, which can eliminate packet drops for significantly
improved performance, reliability and predictability. The G8124E
can help your data center evolve to a higher level, helping you
consolidate network and storage networks into a single fabric.
You can achieve lower costs, simplify management and attain
higher performance with better bandwidth utilization—and the
flexibility you need to meet tomorrow’s needs. Converged
enhanced Ethernet can help deliver value for your iSCSI,
NAS and FCoE enterprise storage environments.
The G8124E is virtualized—supports Virtual Fabric, which allows for the carving up of a physical NIC into 2 - 8 virtual NICs (vNICs) for improved performance, availability and security, while reducing cost and complexity.
The G8124E is cooler—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 G8124E is easier—with server-oriented provisioning via point-and-click management interfaces. Its industry-standard CLI and easy interoperability simplifies configuration for those familiar with Cisco environments.
