Scalable Networking Solutions
The HP Cisco B22hp Fabric Extender provides a scalable networking solution that can help organizations to easily expand their network infrastructure as their needs grow. The Fabric Extender is designed to work seamlessly with other Cisco UCS components, such as fabric interconnects and servers, to provide a unified and highly scalable networking environment.
One of the key benefits of the Fabric Extender is its ability to provide high-speed connectivity to servers using the Cisco Fabric Extender Technology (FEX) architecture. This technology allows the Fabric Extender to extend the fabric interconnects into the blade server chassis, providing direct, low-latency connectivity to each server.
In addition, the Fabric Extender supports a range of advanced networking features, such as quality of service (QoS) and virtual local area networks (VLANs), that can help organizations to optimize their network performance and reduce network congestion.
The Fabric Extender is also designed to support high availability and redundancy, which can help to ensure that network connectivity is maintained even in the event of a failure. The Fabric Extender supports a range of failover mechanisms, including virtual port channel (vPC), which provides automatic failover in the event of a fabric interconnect or server failure.
