The Layer 3 Link Between Nexus 7010 And Cisco 6506 E Switches Is Frequently Going Down Part 2

Cisco Certifies MDS Switch for QLogic?s Multi-Purpose Adapters

Jul 6 2011 10:07AM GMT Posted by: Yasir Irfan In my previous post I was talking about the Green IT problem we were facing with connectivity between Cisco 6500 Series switch and Cisco Nexus 7010 Switch. While troubleshooting we figured out there were no issues either with configuration of physical media (Fiber optic cable), the problem turned out to with 10GBASE X2 modules. Though the distance between these two locations is hardly 250 meters and there was a multimode fiber optic cable (supports 10G) running between these two locations. Initially a Cisco X2-10 GB-LX4 module was installed at Cisco 6500 Series Switch and at the Nexus 7010 we had a SFP SR Module. Table 1.

Nortel spin-off takes on switch market

He voiced his opinion in an interview he gave to SiliconAngles Kristen Feledy shortly after the company launched FabricCache , the first product based on its groundbreaking Mt. Rainer technology. Miniman predicted that the vendor will eventually implement the caching solution in an Ethernet product, and stressed the importance of the channel for QLogic. The latter can be also be said for Cisco. Last month, flash solutions provider Nimble Storage released private cloud reference architecture for Microsoft users.

Burton Group vice-president and research director Drue Reeves, who specializes in data centre strategy, said that network administrators have always had two main concerns: density and heat. Now that servers can be shrunk down to very compact sizes, heat is top-of-mind. If Blade Networks switches consumes 95 per cent less power than a comparable Cisco switch, which the company says they do, it taps right into what customers are after, he said. Blade Network was wise to work closely with IBM and HP, Reeves added.

HP targets Cisco dominance with core switch

8212zl Now they have that capability [and they] don't have to deal with the intricacies of dealing with Cisco," he said. Congdon added that, for larger enterprises, a common configuration is to have a Cisco core with ProCurve at the edge of the network. John McHugh, ProCurve's managing director, said: "ProCurve has got to a size where the only way to continue to add to the market is to run into our competitor [Cisco]. The bulk of our competitive motion will be against that company." McHugh said that the 8212zl comes with a lifetime warranty and he said that a product would typically last 12to 15 years.
