We have four Cisco 3750x switches. We would like to run fiber directly from the switch to the back of our SAN and database servers.  What do we need to do to accomplish this? We do not have any of the additional network modules for the switches.

If you want to run fibre directly from the servers to the 3750 swith you will have to purchase the miniGBIC SFP modules for the switch. The part number fir the Multimode short haul modules are GLC-SX-MM. The 3750-X switches support 4 of these per switch.

For the servers/SAN you will need a fibre NIC card to conect to the switch.
