The PowerOne management network provides OOB connectivity for PowerOne.
Similar to the PowerOne system fabric, the OOB network starts small and is designed for significant future scalability. The current OOB network consists of two Dell EMC S4148T-ON switches. When PowerOne is scaled out, an additional pair of S4148T-ON switches will be deployed for each Pod. To accommodate customer connectivity for these additional S4148T-ON switches, two S5232F-ON switches will be deployed as OOB aggregation switches.
This section describes the OOB connections.
OOB connections (common to each Compute Pod)
The following diagrams show OOB management connections that are common to any Compute Pod.
OOB customer connection
The following diagram shows the S4148T-ON OOB management switches that are directly linked to the management network of the customer environment.
In this configuration, each uplink from the S4148T-ON switches is a point-to-point L3 connection. The OOB management networks are advertised into the customer’s management network through BGP or OSPF.
In PowerOne there is an L3 connection between the S4148T-ON (OOB) switches and the S5232F-ON (leaf) switches in the first Pod.
