I believe i mentioned it somewhere, I am in the same boat, I started with my x1052p with the 4 ports, i picked up some cheap Mellanox ConnectX-2 Cards then I upgraded to ConnectX-3 Cards and upgraded my NAS to one that supports 10G. So now I am looking at needing a total of 10 Ports.The Dell seems like a good option, but I feel more and more like I should go ahead and hold out for an 8-port. I have three servers and I think I may swap both of my X520-DA1's for X520-DA2's like I have in my main box. Then I'll take one of the leftover DA1's and throw it into my workstation. Then suddenly I need 7 ports! So...7 ports of SFP+ and not too loud...thoughts?
I'm actually looking at this unit and the 5640 (48 ports and I pick up PoE). Just don't know how loud these suckers are and they do eat up 60/100w.Avaya/Nortel 5530-TFD (layer 3 switch/router)
1Gbe - 12
1GBe/SFP dual-personality - 12
10Gb XFP - 2
A bit of an odd duck with the XFP ports but can be picked up for under $300 on ebay.
I just wonder what difference does it make xfp or sfp+ , these are just different modules which both end up as lc optic.If you can live with XFP instead of SFP+, there's the Fujitsu XG2000. The seller that has them listed at $999.99 has offered them to me for $300 if I take the transaction off eBay. Not gonna name or link them because that's an eBay TOS violation.
There are also a couple on auction with low bids right now.
No idea if they have a web interface.
And what looks to be only 6 40mm fans. I'm sure it's nearly silent.I just wonder what difference does it make xfp or sfp+ , these are just different modules which both end up as lc optic.
I have Fujitsu XG2000R from ebay for under $500 and I couldn't be more happier. This is very very high quality 10Gb switch with 20 ports that cost $16000 when it came out.It has redundant power supplies and other features that you will not find in any of lastest top consumer models netgear offers. I glad I didn't wate $1500 on netgear 12 Gb ports, not just because of the money , but it's so much less for so much more.
P.S. I wouldn't even mention it till I got 2 of them for myself first.
I am not sure what are you saying. It's a 1U chassis , they can't be 120mm fans !And what looks to be only 6 40mm fans. I'm sure it's nearly silent.
