The network is designed to meet the needs of a high performance and scalable cluster, while providing redundancy and access to management capabilities. The architecture is a leaf and spine model that is based on 25 GbE networking technologies. It uses Dell EMC PowerSwitch S5248F-ON switches for the leaves and Dell EMC PowerSwitch Z9432F-ON switches for the spine.
IPv4 is used for the network layer. The design does not support the use of IPv6 for network connectivity.
