Simplify and make your data center change-ready. The HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Module for c-Class BladeSystem allows administrators to fine-tune network bandwidth at the server edge by dividing each 10 Gb network connection into four independent physical FlexNIC server connections. Each FlexNIC can be configured from 100 Mb up to 10 Gb, allowing just the right amount of network bandwidth based on your application needs. The Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Module offers a new class of blade interconnect that allows you to move, add, and change the servers inside your BladeSystem transparently to external network connections. With Virtual Connect, you can reduce costs and simplify connections to LANs and SANs, consolidate and precisely control your network connections, and enable administrators to add, replace and recover server resources on-the-fly.
Simplify Your Network.
HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Modules for c-Class BladeSystem simplify networks by reducing cables without adding switches to manage. They provide 4:1 consolidation of interconnect equipment: Each VC Flex-10 module can replace up to four Ethernet switches supporting data and iSCSI storage traffic. They reduce networking TCO at the server edge: Save up to 60% of infrastructure costs and reduced annual power and cooling costs. Virtual Connect simplifies connection management: Wire-once, then add, move and change network connections to 1000's of servers in minutes vs. days from one console without affecting your LAN and SAN. HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Modules with firmware v3.30 and greater improve network visibility for troubleshooting from a command line interface with secure access for network teams via TACACS+ or RADIUS.
- Reduce network infrastructure costs while scaling your virtual server environment.
