Lenovo Flex System FC5022 24-port 16Gb SAN Scalable Switch
Part Number: 00Y3324, New
The Lenovo Flex System™ FC5022 16Gb SAN Scalable Switch offerings are Gen 5 Fibre Channel (FC) embedded modules for Lenovo Flex System. With up to 48 ports that operate at 16 and 8 Gbps FC speeds, each module provides up to 28 internal ports to compute nodes through the Flex System midplane and up to 20 external SFP+ ports.
The FC5022 SAN switch modules deliver unmatched scalability and flexibility for Flex System users wanting to connect directly into 8 or 16 Gbps FC storage or to an upstream storage area network (SAN). The FC5022 can be configured in the Access Gateway mode using NPIV for simple upstream connectivity or in the Full Fabric more for more advance switching as a part of the larger Fibre Channel fabric.
The switch offers end-to-end 16 Gb with backwards compatibility to 8 Gb and 4 Gb to the SAN connectivity. Monitoring and management are simplified using end-to-end Brocade tools, such as Web Tools and the Brocade Network Advisor (BNA).
