Integration with Virtualized Environments

HPE C8S98A is a Virtual Connect SE 40Gb F8 Module for HPE Synergy that provides virtualized network connectivity for HPE Synergy Compute Modules. This module offers up to 24 internal and external 40 Gb Ethernet ports for HPE Synergy Compute Modules and enables seamless integration with virtualized environments.

With HPE C8S98A, virtualized environments can be easily integrated and managed through the HPE OneView management platform. This enables IT administrators to configure, monitor, and manage network connectivity across virtualized environments with ease.

The HPE C8S98A module supports multiple virtual networks and VLANs, allowing IT administrators to create separate logical networks for different applications and workloads. This enables better management of network traffic and reduces the risk of network congestion.

The module also supports advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), which ensures that critical applications get the required network bandwidth and latency, and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), which enables the aggregation of multiple physical links to form a high-speed virtual link.

HPE C8S98A is an ideal solution for virtualized environments that require high-performance, scalable, and flexible network connectivity.

Power Requirements and Consumption

HPE C8S98A Virtual Connect SE 40Gb F8 Module has specific power requirements and consumption specifications that need to be taken into account when deploying it in a data center or other IT infrastructure.

The HPE C8S98A module requires a power supply that can deliver 250 watts of power at 12 volts DC. The maximum power consumption of the module is 300 watts. However, the actual power consumption depends on the number of ports in use, the type of transceivers installed, and the network traffic.

In terms of power redundancy, the HPE C8S98A module supports both AC and DC power input. It also supports dual power supply modules for redundant power supply. In addition, the module has built-in power management features that optimize power usage and reduce energy costs.

To monitor the power consumption and temperature of the HPE C8S98A module, HPE OneView provides a real-time power and thermal dashboard that displays the power consumption and temperature of the module, as well as the power consumption and temperature of the individual ports.

HPE C8S98A Virtual Connect SE 40Gb F8 Module is designed to deliver high-performance and reliable network connectivity while minimizing power consumption and reducing energy costs. It is a suitable solution for data centers and other IT infrastructures that require high-speed and low-latency network connectivity.

System Requirements and Compatibility

HPE C8S98A Virtual Connect SE 40Gb F8 Module has specific system requirements and compatibility specifications that need to be taken into account when deploying it in a data center or other IT infrastructure.

Firstly, the HPE C8S98A module is designed to be used with HPE Synergy Compute Modules and HPE Synergy Frame. It is not compatible with other HPE servers or storage systems.

Secondly, the HPE C8S98A module requires a minimum version of HPE OneView 3.0 or higher for management and monitoring. It is also compatible with HPE Synergy Composer and HPE Synergy Image Streamer for automation and deployment.

Thirdly, the HPE C8S98A module requires specific firmware versions for optimal performance and compatibility. It is important to ensure that the firmware versions of the module and other components are compatible and up-to-date.

Fourthly, the HPE C8S98A module requires a minimum of two 40 Gb Ethernet QSFP+ transceivers per module for connectivity. It supports a range of QSFP+ transceivers for different distance requirements and fiber types.

Lastly, the HPE C8S98A module requires proper cabling and rack installation for optimal performance and reliability. HPE provides specific guidelines and recommendations for cabling and rack installation in the product documentation.

The HPE C8S98A Virtual Connect SE 40Gb F8 Module is designed to be used with HPE Synergy Compute Modules and requires specific system requirements and compatibility specifications for optimal performance and reliability. It is important to ensure that these requirements are met when deploying the module in a data center or other IT infrastructure.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

A converged adapter is also referred to as a converged network adapter (CNA) or a single network interface card (NIC). Within a network, the CNA serves the combined roles of a fibre channel host bus adapter and TCP/IP Ethernet network interface card.

The role of a converged adapter is to connect servers to FC-based SANs and Ethernet-based LANs, including workstations and other hardware units. The adapter connects to the server through the PCI-e interface. Therefore, the server will send fibre channel SAN and Ethernet-based LAN to the Ethernet port on the converged adapter through the Fiber Channel over Ethernet protocol for FC-based SAN data and Ethernet protocol for traffic and data on LAN.

At the CNA level, FCoE traffic is first converted into FC and then sent to the FC-based SAN. There's no conversion for Ethernet traffic, which is directly sent to a LAN. Where a CNA is absent, servers must have at the very least two adapters. The first is an FC HBA adapter that aids in connecting the server to SAN, while the second will have a TCP/IP Ethernet NIC that facilitates the connection to the LAN.

We have a wide range of converged network adapters that will come in handy in meeting the requirements of your computer network. The use of a CNA to make the connection between servers to both SAN and LAN helps to reduce costs since it will cut back on the number of adapter cards, PCI-e slots, cables, and switch ports used within the network. As a result, a converged adapter will greatly minimize the challenge of network maintenance and administration, since there will be only a single connection and a single cable to look after.

Other benefits of converged adapters and converged networks are:

  • Simplification of the typical storage and network topology
  • Access to basic network interface card features and performance virtualization over NIC.
  • All-in-one provision of Ethernet, iSCSI, and Fiber Channel (FC) connectivity by offloading FCoE and iSCSI hardware.
  • Guaranteed data integrity
  • Power saving because of fewer adapters and cables.
  • Minimal impact of the overlay network
  • Fewer switch ports - 1 Port, 2 Port, 4 Port
  • Lower cabling requirements
  • Centralized network management
  • Improved quality of service
  • Remote direct memory access to facilitate data acceleration
  • Support for software-defined networking (SDN) programming

Converged network adapter plays a strategic role within networks and many IT setups in that they help business owners and network admins consolidate their systems, harness new and emerging technologies, and ensure efficient IT operations. CNAs will also serve as a foundation for all-inclusive progress to more powerful and sophisticated computing networks and systems. With the increased sophistication in storage, handling, and evaluation of data, CNAs as well as other network admin tools are changing the network landscape and creating intelligent and capable networks.

Besides, the converged adapters can be used with specific hardware pieces that can be used to satisfy performance standards. A CNA can be used alongside 10 Gigabit and 40 Gigabit to support greater performance network transmission.
