Network

AMP Central uses Cisco Nexus management and ToR network switches for network connectivity.

The following server hardware is used for connectivity to management and ToR network switches:
  • Cisco UCS VIC 1457 Quad Port 10/25G SFP28 mLOM
  • Intel X550T Dual Port 10GBase-T LOM

Connectivity from the server VIC to the ToR switch ports is made with 100 GbE QSFP breakout transceivers to support up to 4x25 GbE connections. The default is two transceivers per switch to connect a minimum of four servers. Two servers per switch port thus using two of four breakout cables per transceiver.

The Dell EMC Unity and Dell EMC Unity XT Hybrid management networks use the following components:
  • 2 x 1GBase-T management ports (one per storage processor)
  • 4 x 10GBase-T Ethernet ports (two per storage processor)
  • 16 x 10GBase-T iSCSI ports (eight per storage processor)
