Product Details


The Multi-Switch Interconnect Module (MSIM) helps double the number of I/O connections (for example, Fibre Channel and Ethernet) to a blade. The MSIM, along with new Combination Form Factor (CFF) Expansion Cards, enables simultaneous I/O connections to standard switch modules in both the standard and high-speed I/O module bays. The MSIM is a double-high mechanical enclosure for the BladeCenter® H and can be inserted into bays 7 and 8 or 9 and 10 to provide support for up to two standard I/O switch modules per MSIM. The front of the enclosure contains two standard I/O module bays that provide connectivity of standard I/O switch modules in the high-speed bays to the blade servers. The MSIM supports Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and pass-thru I/O modules. The new CFF Expansion Cards fit on the blade server to allow connectivity to both standard and high-speed switch module bays at the same time. These new Expansion Cards provide new flexibility for connecting the blade server to the vertically oriented standard I/O module bays 3 and 4 (in BladeCenter H), as well as to the horizontally oriented module in bays 7 and 8 or 9 and 10. A total of three new Expansion Cards are being announced:
