Separate names with a comma.
Also (from the datasheet):
I think the D-Link switches you're referring to have been announced for May 2015, so I wouldn't say that qualifies as vaporware. AFAIK they're not...
Thanks for all the info, but I think the ICX 6610 is gonna be too power-hungry for my tastes: 165W (185W with 2 PSUs) power draw according to the...
A switch with 48x 1Gb and 8x 10G ports (+ 4x 40G QSFP in the back?)?
This could be perfect for a home lab.
How hard is it to find them with the...
We actually have these at work.
I had no idea they did 10GbE, as we only use them for FC.
Great find, the power consumption is a bummer though.
For a max of 4 x 10G nodes, the D-Link DGS-1510-28X is probably the cheapest option around. There's already a thread on it here.
Goes for around...
Lots of options.
Apparently there's another model in this series:
DXS-1210-10TS with 8-port 10GBASE-T and 2-port SFP+, which will be a little cheaper than the...
The 10-port SFP+ model sounds interesting.
According to the datasheet, power consumption is pretty good: 25.22 W standby, 43.81 W max.
This should be possible, yes.
It doesn't even have to be a ring network though, with three machines you could basically connect each of the nodes...
Very interesting indeed.
I could see myself buying 2 of these - probably the cheapest way of getting 6 x 10G ports (1 port on each switch for 10G...
If you're merely trying to get the PSU noise levels down and don't need the additional power, I think the PWS-920P-1R / PWS-920P-SQ (920W,...
Not sure if this has been posted yet, but there are some used LB4Ms (HP branded?) for $ 110 on eBay: HP Quanta Open Source LB4M 48 Port Gigabit...
Will you be doing any noise optimizations?
Cool, I'm looking at the 846/847 chassis too.
Will you be doing some kind of write-up on it?
Maybe I could use the backplane from the 6026TT-TF (moto211's model) in the 6026TT-HDTRF, since both use a 827 chassis? As far as I can, tell the...
I found a pretty good picture of the backplane (BPN-SAS-827HD) on eBay:
Looks like the 2 nodes plug into those vertical black connectors...
The GS1910-24 has no SFP+ ports, the XGS1910-24 however has 2.
Thanks for digging that up, legen!
I assume you were using 2 x L5520?
Did you also use the mobo's SAS ports for this?
