Top of Rack Switches

Hello,

We are in a process of changing our datacenter infraestructure and we need to select the best Top of rack switch for our scenario.

 

We need a top of rack switch that provide between 6 and 10 10GB ports & minimum of 24 1GB ports.

 

Whish switch has this ability our days?

 

Thank you.

Re: Top of Rack Switches

You could try the 5700-32XGT-8XG-2QSFP+

 

32 1G/10G copper ports

8    10G SFP+ ports

2    40G ports

 

But really, it's not very flexible, and 8 10G ports isn't really enough.

 

Better to buy a 5700-40XG and some copper SFPs to cover your copper connections, which you can remove and throw away as your servers gradually move away from using 1Gb connections.

hi,

 

You can opt for the 5900 switch model.

Re: Top of Rack Switches

Priyansha, the 5900 isn't a model, it's a series - the OP wanted a switch with 6-10x 10Mb and 24x 1Gb ports.

 

Which model from the 5900 series offers this combination?
