This solution uses the following Dell EMC Networking switches:
- S5048-ON—25 GbE, L2- and L3-capable network switch for storage, cluster, and client traffic.
- S3048-ON—1000 BASE-T, L2- and L3-capable switch that provides 48 ports supporting 10 MbE/100 MbE/1 GbE and four 10 GbE SFP+ uplinks. This switch is deployed to support the out-of-band connectivity between the PowerEdge R640 servers and Networking S5048-ON switches.
- S4048-ON—Ultra-low-latency 10/40 GbE top-of-rack switch that is built for applications in the high-performance data center and computing environment. In this solution, the S4048-ON switch is deployed to segregate S2D storage and optional Data Domain backup and recovery network traffic to avoid a single point of failure.
