The following figure depicts the integration of the fully converged architecture.
The following figure depicts the fully converged network topology with four NIC ports.
In the fully converged network topology, all storage ports from the server are connected to the same network fabric. In the host operating system, the NIC ports are used for both storage and management/VM traffic. The following figure shows this configuration in the host operating system.
In this host operating system network configuration, a SET is created with two or four physical ports and virtual adapters in the host operating system that is implemented for Storage 1, Storage 2, and Management traffic.
The following figure depicts using four NIC ports for the Switch-Embedded Team in a fully converged topology.
The storage adapters in this configuration can use either one, two, or four VLANs.
