Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnects

Cisco Unified Computing System Overview

The Cisco Unified Computing System(Cisco UCS) is anext-generationdata center platform that unites computing, networking, storage access, and virtualization resources into a cohesive system designed to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase business agility. The system integrates alow-latency,lossless

10 Gigabit Ethernet unified network fabric with enterprise-class,x86-architectureservers. The system is an integrated, scalable, multichassis platform in which all resources participate in a unified management domain (Figure 1).

Product Overview

The Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnects are a core part of the Cisco Unified Computing System, providing both network connectivity and management capabilities for the system (Figure 2). The Cisco UCS 6200 Series offers line-rate,low-latency,lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and Fibre Channel functions.

The Cisco UCS 6200 Series provides the management and communication backbone for the Cisco UCS B-SeriesBlade Servers and 5100 Series Blade Server Chassis. All chassis, and therefore all blades, attached to the Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnects become part of a single, highly available management domain. In addition, by supporting unified fabric, the Cisco UCS 6200 Series provides both the LAN and SAN connectivity for all blades within its domain.

From a networking perspective, the Cisco UCS 6200 Series uses a cut-througharchitecture, supporting deterministic,low-latency,line-rate10 Gigabit Ethernet on all ports, switching capacity of 2 terabits (Tb), and320-Gbpsbandwidth per chassis, independent of packet size and enabled services. The product family supports Cisco® low-latency,lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet1 unified network fabric capabilities, which increase the reliability, efficiency, and scalability of Ethernet networks. The fabric interconnect supports multiple traffic classes over a lossless Ethernet fabric from the blade through the interconnect. Significant TCO savings come from anFCoE-optimizedserver design in which network interface cards (NICs), host bus adapters (HBAs), cables, and switches can be consolidated.

Figure 2. Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnects

Unified Fabric with FCoE: I/O Consolidation

The Cisco UCS 6200 Series is built to consolidate LAN and SAN traffic onto a single unified fabric, saving the capital expenditures (CapEx) and operating expenses (OpEx) associated with multiple parallel networks, different types of adapter cards, switching infrastructure, and cabling within racks. The unified ports support allows either base or expansion module ports in the interconnect to support direct connections from Cisco UCS to existing native Fibre Channel SANs. The capability to connect FCoE to native Fibre Channel protects existing storage system investments while dramatically simplifying in-rackcabling.

1 All Cisco UCS 6200 Series ports can alternatively be configured for 1 Gigabit Ethernet (see Table 2).

Cisco UCS Manager

The Cisco UCS 6200 Series hosts and runs Cisco UCS Manager in a highly available configuration, enabling the fabric interconnects to fully manage all Cisco UCS elements. Connectivity to the Cisco UCS 5100 Series blade chassis is maintained through the Cisco UCS 2100 or 2200 Series Fabric Extenders in each blade chassis. The Cisco UCS 6200 Series interconnects support out-of-bandmanagement through a dedicated10/100/1000-MbpsEthernet management port as well asin-bandmanagement. Cisco UCS Manager typically is deployed in a clusteredactive-passiveconfiguration on redundant fabric interconnects connected through dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet clustering ports.

Optimization for Virtualization

For virtualized environments, the Cisco UCS 6200 Series supports Cisco virtualization-awarenetworking and Cisco Data Center Virtual Machine Fabric Extender(VM-FEX)architecture. Cisco Data CenterVM-FEXallows the interconnects to providepolicy-basedvirtual machine connectivity, with network properties moving with the virtual machine, and a consistent operational model for both physical and virtual environments.
