I would like to connect my PC RAID server to US-16-XG Ubiquiti 10Gb switch using SFP+. I would prefer only a single port, and would like it to be PICe3.0 X4, so as to not to unduly burden my expansion slot requirements. PCIe X8 just isn't needed for a single-port card on PCIe3.0. But if the...
My question is regarding connecting a few ConnectX-3 devices (SFP+).
For my home lab, I am looking to upgrade the connections on 3 systems, all linux.
They are already connected at 1gb ethernet and I would like to get them all to 5gb or 10gb if possible. I mention 5gb first because I am not...
I have a few ConnectX-3 cards with dual QSFP+ ports on each and I'd like to have their capacity available for a local LAN party (36 total 1G ports required) without breaking the bank. The problem is the QSFP+ enabled switches common in the US are either much more expensive in the EU or just...
i just got a Quanta LB8 Switch with 48 SFP+ Ports. The Problem is that my whole network is currently 1G copper (but i have 4 SFP uplinks on my switch).
I need a simple way to integrate my "new" 10G Switch into my network. I thought SFP modules would work in a SFP+ port but i seems...
I've been trying to setup a home fibre network today however I have encountered a problem.
The network looks like this:
Chelsio N320-E --》Ubiquiti MMU SFP+ Tranciever --》 SC - LC MM Fibre Cable -- HPE 5406zl(J8436A - SC X2 transciever)
The problem I've got is I can't establish a...
I ordered some SFP-H10GB-CU3M compatible (supposedly) DACs from fs.com, and although they're nice and thin, and work with my Mellanox Connectx-3 cards in my NAS', they are not compatible with my P81E 10GbE cards in my UCS servers. Can anyone recommend a good DAC in 3-5m distances to connect my...
I was thinking, for my living room where I have quite a few servers running (silent !), to do a custom 10gbe IPoIB setup. In my lab room I could use the Voltaire 4036 (non-E version unfortunately) which I still need to find a way to silence. It's way too noisy even for the server...
I need to build a server with a port to connect a 1Gbps single mode fiber. There seems to be little PCI-e cards available that offer 2 ports (i'm looking for either 2 or 4 ports for expansion) SFP cages where I can use any optics.
Question is, will a 10GbE nic work with SFP optics (instead...
I need a 10 meter active SFP+ DAC to connect my workstation peer to peer to a server with Mellanox Connectx-2 cards. I might get a TP Link SFP+ enabled switch in the future... so compatibility would be nice to have.
Since the cables run for 81 USD new, which ones should be the most...
For those running server 10/40GB Ethernet adapters in their desktop/workstation setups designed for low airflow, how did you choose to cool these cards designed for high airflow cases? PCI slot coolers? oversized heatsinks? Re-purposed CPU coolers? water cooling?
I am in the process of getting a proper 10gbit vaai supported storage solution for my home lab.
I am considering the QNAP TS-831X, as it has 2x sfp+ built-in, and vaai support + vsphere plugin.
Not sure if the performance will be good enough though.
So, I found some hardware I might...
My lab is 5x Windows Server 2016. I purchased 5x ConnectX2 and an IS-5022.
I have 5x SFP+ to SFP+ Passive copper cables - 2m long.
The IS-5022 has 8 QSFP ports (female). The ConnectX2 cards have SFP+ ports I believe, but documentation seems really difficult to get (these are HP Mellanox...
Is there difference in physical form between SFP28 optical and SFP/SFP+ ?
Should SFP28 optical module (like the one in the following link) fit into SFP/SFP+ cage ?
I have a Chelsio S320E 110-1082-31 dual port 10GBps PCI-E FC HBA. I am currently working on setting up a 40GBps lab, so cleaning out some older hardware. (Many RAID cards coming soon)!

Hi, will that combo work? The 1950 manual mentions DAC for the SFP+ ports only for purposes of stacking. Googling, around, I could not find a lot of information, other than that HP switches may be picky in terms of which DAC cable to use...
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...
So recently I purchased a server off ebay.ca (24 Bay FreeNAS Chenbro RM41824 4u 2x E5-2650, 64GB RAM, 3x LSI SAS9211-8i, | eBay). Now without thinking about it I didn't notice that the only way other then the impi to connect the server to the network is using the dual 10Gb SFP+...

$466.99 with promo code
EMCFFGH69 drops it to $186.80. Looks like there's an Amex promo for another $25 off bringing it down to $161.80.
I just ordered one of these from wiredzone (likely to ship next week as it is considered BTO). I searched this forum, but was unable to find anyone talking about it. I'm curious if anyone else has one to share their thoughts on it.
10g fiber SFP+ adapters:
mellanox connectx2 en - 2 of them
Possible switches to be purchased in future:
Dell X1052 or D-Link DGS-1510-28X
To preface i'm just a hobbyist and this is my first foray into fiber. Hence the questions.
