Dear Sir

I want to use the 10 GB Ethernet technology in my environment.

I need to connect our server ( Hp proliant Dl380 g7) to a HP workstation z400 and to Mac Pro through a 10 Gb  Ethernet Switch .

I need a full solution for this if available.

Regards

Hi,

You will need the following

1. DL380G7: Any of the following network card with the correct GBIC for either UTP / Fibre
NOTE: A minimum of two Gigabytes (2 GB) of server memory is required per each adapter.
NOTE: Direct Attach Cable (DAC) for copper environments or fiber transceivers and cables for fiber-optic environments must be purchased separately.  
HP NC522SFP Dual Port 10GbE Gigabit Server Adapter 468332-B21
HP NC550SFP Dual Port 10GbE Server Adapter 581201-B21
HP NC523SFP 10Gb 2-port Server Adapter 593717-B21
HP NC552SFP 10Gb 2-port Ethernet Server Adapter 614203-B21
HP 10 GbE PCI-e G2 Dual Port Network Interface Card 516937-B21

2. z400:
There are no official 10GE option for the z400. You may try the above adapters but make sure there are corresponding slot available in the z400

3. MacPro
There are a number of card choices and it is a discussion on Apple support forum

4. Switch / Cable
Last but not least you need a switch and some cables to hook up everything, the choice would depend one where you run on copper (UTP) or fibre. A discussion could be found here

At the moment, it only has copper option for direct attach configuration

For PC and desktop, the cost vs performance gain could not be justified as the internal throughput could not fully utilise the bus speed. Thanks

Best regards,
