Cisco UCS Rack C-series servers networking using 10 Gb
Posted on 2014-08-21
We plan to refresh our VMware setup with 3 new Cisco UCS C240 M3 rack servers with VIC 1225 Dual Port 10Gb SFP+ and implement VMware Virtual SAN.
What is the best reasonabe way to connect them together using 10 Gbit? So far we used different server vendor and have little experience with UCS. Should we consider Nexus switches, fabric interconnects or just any other switches, which support 10 Gb? The idea is to keep it simple but Cisco UCS management looks interesting option.
The rest of network is 1Gb, based on Cisco 3750G swithches, which do not support 10 Gb.
