CPI Project

by lmarzke last modified Feb 09, 2018 10:32 AM

CPI greenfield design:   Switch to converged 10G networking ( 2 x 10G per host ) for both SAN and LAN.  TOR switches also provided VRF-lite east/west routing as all networking outside the rack was legacy 1G.   Hybrid flash storage was used as workloads consisted of a small percentage of SQL,  with most workloads having much lower IOPS requirements.

New stacked Layer-3 TOR switches for converged SAN and LAN traffic to each host on 2 x 10G SFP+.     Switches did not support reverse airflow , so they needed to face forwards to keep cool.   The white/blue Ethernet cables are for console etc. and not in the primary data path.10G layer 3 TOR switches
