Synergy Virtual Connects

Wouldn’t you like to consolidate legacy hierarchical architectures based on north/south design with over-subscription bottlenecks into a flat, east/west architecture to increase data throughput and reduce latency with only a single hop within large domains of virtual machines or HPE Synergy Compute Modules?

The HPE Virtual Connect SE 100Gb Module for Synergy provides the latest performance for your demanding workloads including 25/50 Gb downlink speeds, 100 Gb uplinks, and 16/32 Gb converged Fiber Channel. Its dis-aggregated, rack-scale design uses a master/satellite architecture to consolidate data center network connections, reduce hardware and scale network bandwidth across multiple HPE Synergy Frames.

The master module contains intelligent networking capabilities that extends connectivity to satellite frames through Interconnect Link Modules. This decreases top of rack switch needs and substantially reduces costs.

What's new

  • Support for 25/50/100 Gb Ethernet
  • Support for 8/16/32 Gb converged fiber channel
  • Support for Large Network Sets (LNS)
  • Support for RoCE v1/2
  • Support for HPE Synergy 4820C and HPE Synergy 6820C Converged Network Adapters

Features

Enhance Uplink Costs with the Latest Fabric Bandwidths

The HPE Virtual Connect SE 100Gb F32 switch module provides 25/50/100 Gb performance with the cost benefits of HPE Synergy's master/satellite networking architecture. Converge your uplinks from the Synergy frame and save money on upstream ports.

Improve Fabric Efficiency, Reliability and Manageability with HPE Composable Infrastructure

The HPE Virtual Connect SE 100Gb F32 Module for Synergy consolidates data center network connections, and reduces hardware and scale network bandwidth across multiple frames with the HPE Synergy innovative disaggregated, rack-scale design.

Enjoy simple, reliable and fast provisioning HPE Virtual Connect SE 100Gb F32 Modules using the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Synergy software-defined intelligence with template-driven programming.

Orchestrate frictionless HPE Virtual Connect SE firmware updates in concert with an entire Synergy infrastructure using one-tool, one-step template-based operations from HPE Synergy Composer.

Based on Industry's Proven Virtual Connect Technology

The HPE Virtual Connect SE 100Gb F32 Module for Synergy provides one flexible interconnect interface to the network. One device supports common data center networks protocols such as: Ethernet, Fibre Channel (FC), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI.

Fine-tune the performance of each data and storage connection to meet the needs of each of your virtual machines and targeted workloads.

Connect to HPE Synergy Compute Modules using full hardware offload of iSCSI and FCoE protocol processing and minimizing the impact on host CPU performance to increase storage connection performance.

Perform ultra-fast communication between virtual server hosts during migrations and recoveries with hardware based 25/50 GbE performance.
