Providing 10Gb Ethernet connectivity for up to sixteen M-Series blade servers equipped with the latest KR-based 10Gb network daughter cards (NDCs) or mezzanine cards, M8024-k simplifies deployment and management of MSeries blades within 10Gb Ethernet infrastructures. Not ready for 10Gb? No worries, as M8024-k supports 1Gb connections both to the server and to LAN, ensuring you’ll be ready for 10Gb when the time comes. M8024-k’s enhanced bandwidth, performance, and flexibility satisfy the changing demands of data centers embracing virtualization and other I/O-intensive technologies.
Connect with the benefits of virtualization
With up to twenty-four total 10GbE ports, PowerConnect M8024-k meets the high bandwidth demands placed by multi-core CPUs and server virtualization. When combined with PowerEdge M710HD blade servers featuring 10Gb Network Daughter Cards, M8024-k provides end-to-end 10Gb Fabric A connectivity and leaves room for growth or other technologies in Fabrics B and C. Supporting connectivity to M-Series’ KR-based 10Gb NICs and CNAs, M8024-k opens the door to cutting edge networking features such as NIC Partitioning (NPAR), SRIOV, and iSCSI Offload.
Simply deploy and manage
Deploy and manage 10Gb-based blade configurations simply and with minimal network admin involvement using M8024-k’s default Simple Switch mode of operation, featuring port aggregation and autoconfiguration when connecting to any external LAN. Alternatively, when operating in full switch mode, enjoy a shortened learning curve and seamless integration of M8024-k into existing Cisco® or other LANs using industry standard CLI (IS-CLI). These capabilities combined with enterprise-class QoS, Security, and management features, help ensure that M8024-k meets your in-chassis Ethernet switching needs both today and in the future.
