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) Child TopicsAMP Central logical network topologiesThe AMP Central network uses the VMware VDS with NIOC to support L2 or L3 uplink connectivity. The AMP Central stand-alone or integrated configuration supports L2 or L3 uplinks. With the L2 uplinks, network SVIs are defined in the core switches. With the L3 uplinks, network SVIs are defined in the AMP Central network switches. iSCSI shared storage designThe iSCSI shared storage solution for AMP Central provides access to block storage using iSCSI that is based on connectivity to the management switches.
