FlexFabric and Virtual Connect


Can anyone explain the difference between FlexFabric and Virtual Connect?

Flexfabric is the name of the Comware line of switches.

Virtual Connect is how you can virtualize blade network connections

Re: FlexFabric and Virtual Connect

FlexFabric are "converged" capable modules that can support both Ethernet and FC connectivity from the same module.  If by Virtual Connect, you mean the predecessor modules to FlexFabric; those were specific to either Ethernet or FC connectivity:  VC-E (Ethernet) or VC-F (FC/SAN).  You can still use the Virtual Connect interface to manage either FF or VC connectivity on a blade enclosure.

Did that answer your question?
