Зачем нужна конвергенция?

• Упрощение сети на доступе

• Снижение числа адаптеров в серверах,


физических соединений и портов АСО

• Упрощение архитектуры ЦОД

• Повышение гибкости IT за счет упрощение


развертывания

• Greener Data Center (снижение


энергопотребления)
Separate Converged

The benefits of NPV:
• Switch in NPV mode will not occupy Domain ID, high
expansibility
• Switch in NPV mode can cooperate with different vendors.

IRF and FCoE use cases
Technologies
• IRF is key HPN technology for HA, HW redundancy, N:1 Virtualization.
• FCoE is a technology to converge the LAN and FC SAN traffic in the DC.
• HP FlexFabric 5900CP solution combines the 2 technologies to provide unique customer benefits.
Significance
• FCoE and IRF are initially designed for different proposes.
• FC SAN fabric is required to have 2 separate physical/logical paths for storage traffic.
• The use cases are to define how to leverage all the IRF benefits in the FC/FCoE environment.

Positioning
• The use of IRF in FC/FCoE environment is not mandatory.
• The use cases apply to all HPN IRF based FCoE implementation(TOR/Core).
• The IRF/FCoE use cases apply to both single hop and multi hop FCoE environment.
