Cisco UCS 2200 series Fabric Extender brings the unified fabric into the blade server enclosure,providing multiple 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections between blade servers and the fabric interconnect,simplifying diagnostics,cabling,and management.
The Cisco UCS 2200 series is enabling a lossless and deterministic Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) fabric to connect all blades and chassis together. Since the fabric extender is similar to a distributed line card,it does not perform any switching and is managed as an extension of the fabric interconnects. This approach removes switching from the chassis,reducing overall infrastructure complexity and enabling Cisco UCS to scale to many chassis without multiplying the number of switches needed,reducing TCO and allowing all chassis to be managed as a single,highly available management domain.
The Cisco UCS 2204XP Fabric Extender has four 10 Gigabit Ethernet,FCoE-capable,SFP+ ports that connect the blade chassis to the fabric interconnect. Each Cisco UCS 2204XP has sixteen 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports connected through the midplane to each half-width slot in the chassis. Typically configured in pairs for redundancy,two fabric extenders provide up to 80 Gbps of I/O to the chassis.
