Overview:

Connect M-Series blades into the Fibre Channel (FC) infrastructure of your choice.

  • Provides Fibre Channel connectivity for Dell™ blades
  • Auto-negotiates link speeds of 8/4/2 Gbps
  • Features 16 external ports with optical 8 Gbps small form-factor pluggable + (SFP+) transceivers

Fibre Channel connectivity for your existing SAN infrastructure

The Dell™ 8/4 Gbps FC Pass-Through Module provides data centers with existing storage area network (SAN) infrastructures a direct Fibre Channel connection between the servers and the SAN. The module offers sixteen 8/4/2 Gbps Fibre Channel one-to-one, non-switched connections between the blade servers and the SAN.

Highlights

  • Each port provides a dedicated connection for guaranteed bandwidth to each server port.
  • Transparent pass-through protocol helps remove interoperability issues between SAN and server.
  • 8, 4 or 2 Gbps Fibre Channel connectivity on each port can match existing server and SAN installations.

Alternative Fibre Channel connectivity option for Dell M-Series blades

Are you looking for the simplicity of a pass-through with the added port/cable aggregation and failover benefits of a switch? Dell 8/4 Gbps FC SAN Module, based on industry-standard N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) technology.
