10 giga ethernet solution

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.

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
