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...
Preface: I am not a linux/unix guru, but I can figure things out and googlefoo for the most part... I've only added the components of my network that are valid for this post.
2x Xeon E5-2678V3, 256GB ram, Intel 540-T2 10 GbE, Intel I350 2x 1GbE and onboard 540-T2 GbE...
Hi all, I'm new here and have searched to try to find what I'm after with no avail, and you lot seem to know what you're on about!
I would like to see if you can find an issue with my proposed setup, I work in 3D using a lot of data and am moving into a new home in a few weeks, a perfect time...
So I have a similar switch, a D-Link DGS-3427, which is a 24-port gigabit switch with a 10G backbone (I have two CX4 expanders currently). I really like it but I can't help there might be some nicer stuff out there that could be had cheap.
Has anyone worked with the Dell Force10 network...
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.
I was scouting for days for a good SFP+ ethernet 10G switch online and found many products, however, not many match my requirements, namely low power consumption and low noise.
I managed to find one which does not seem to appear almost anywhere, either on E-bay or advertised through forums...
I'm relatively new to 10G Ethernet. I've got Intel X710-DA4 cards in three servers and have been directly connecting them to each other (no switch so far) with 3 meter passive SFP+ DAC cables and everything has been working great. (I started with an Intel DAC cable but then found the ones from...
we are looking for 20+ servers with following configuration:
- Vendor: Supermicro
- Case: 1U with 8x or 10x 2,5" trays, Dual PSU is must
- MB: Dual CPU E5 v2 and higher
- RAM: either none or any - 8G or 16G modules prefered, but we have our own supplies
- CPU: preferably none - we are...
So I'm speccing out an IT upgrade for the company I work at. We're a film production and we're thinking about making the move to 10G and part of that is figuring out kind of switch will actually work.
One of the things I've been hammering home is that the connection from the Storage system to...
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...
I recently had Comcast's Gigabit Pro installed and I got one of these Supermicro (Xeon-D) units ( Supermicro SYS-5018D-FN8T Embedded Processor ) to run pfSense 'cause of the two 10G ports.
I am able to get one of those ports to connect to the Comcast-supplied Juniper unit just fine, but I...
I set up a ceph cluster for the lab and therefore was looking for payable 10G switches. So I slipped over the G8124 as you can get those for a good price. The switches basically do what they should. Nevertheless the firmware installed does not support vLAG, which I want to use...
I've been lurking for a while, great stuff! First time poster today.
I am interested in picking up two Netgerar M5300-52G switches on ebay to add some redundancy to my network. My intention is to set them up as follows:
Stacked, with stacking connection using dual 10G ports...
Planning to build a home 10G network and have narrowed down my switch choice to one of these three.
Would be interested in any feedback you may have on these - thanks in advance.
