    Upgrade 10G network and move away from CX4

    I am looking for a recommendation to replace my current switches which have CX4 and move to 10Gbase-T. Main reason is that I need to add a remote switch in a media closet and which will connect via Cat 6e. Second reason is that I want to retire my aged HP servers running VMs and SAN and get a...

    Making a 10G SFP+ switch Nbase-T capable?

    Dear All, I was reading the "SFP+ to 10Gbase-T Adapter Module Buyers Guide" with quite some interest, as I have an existing CAT6a network, but could gate fairly cheap business 10G switches with SFP+ ports. As I need Nbase-T capabilities and most of the 10G SFP+ switches I'm currently watching...

    Do all SFP+ NIC accept Fiber Transceivers?

    Probably noob question: Do all SFP+ NIC accept Fiber Transceivers? I want to buy a few 10G NICs and use a fiber SR Transceiver. Saw the threads on the OEM Mellanox, but couldn't figure out if they use copper or Fiber transceivers.

    Cisco SG550XG-24F stacked => vLAG => packet drops on ceph cluster network

    I bought 2 Cisco SGSG550XG-24F for our new Ceph cluster. The cluster has been setup in the lab with 2 of our old Blade G8124 24x10G Switches and worked seamlessly with good performance. For the sake of simplicity no VLAN config has been used in the lab setup. Now we moved to the SG550XG (and...
