Overview
Bottom rule

The Cisco Nexus 5000 for IBM System Storage switches are a family of line-rate, low-latency, lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE), and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) switches for data center applications.

Features of the new 8 Gb Fibre Channel expansion modules and 8 Gb Fibre Channel short wave and long wave SFP transceivers include:

  • 8 Gb Fibre Channel Expansion Module capable of 8 Gbps, 4 Gbps, 2 Gbps, and 1 Gbps Fibre Channel. (#4040) 1 Gbps requires 4 Gb FC transceivers (#5710 or #5720).
  • 8 Gb Fibre Channel Short Wave SFP transceivers (#5730) for speeds of 8 Gbps, 4 Gbps, or 2 Gbps Fibre Channel up to 100 meters on multimode optical fiber.

Description
Bottom rule

Cisco Nexus 5000 switches for IBM System Storage is designed for data center environments with technology that supports consistent low-latency Ethernet solutions, with front-to-back cooling, and with network ports in the rear, bringing switching into close proximity with servers and making cable runs short and simple. The switch family is designed to be highly serviceable, with optional redundant, hot-pluggable power supplies and fan modules. It uses data center-class Cisco NX-OS to support high reliability and ease of management.

The switch family, using cut-through architecture, supports line-rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet on all ports while maintaining consistent low latency independent of packet size and services enabled. The product family supports IEEE Data Center Bridging and Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) capabilities that can help increase the reliability, efficiency, and scalability of Ethernet networks. These features allow the switch to support multiple traffic classes over a Ethernet fabric, thus enabling consolidation of LAN, SAN, and cluster environments. Its ability to connect Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) to native Fibre Channel protects existing storage system investments while dramatically simplifying in-rack cabling.

In addition to supporting standard 10 Gigabit Ethernet network interface cards (NICs) on servers, the Cisco Nexus 5000 switches integrate with multifunction adapters called converged network adapters (CNAs) that combine the functions of Ethernet NICs and Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs), making the transition to a single, unified network fabric consistent with existing practices, management software, and operating system drivers. The switch family is compatible with integrated transceivers and Twinax cabling solutions to help deliver cost-effective connectivity for 10 Gigabit Ethernet to the servers at the rack level, reducing or eliminating the need for expensive optical transceivers.

New in this announcement:

  • Expansion modules:
    • 8 Gb Fibre Channel expansion module capable of 8 Gbps, 4 Gbps, 2 Gbps, and 1 Gbps Fibre Channel. (#4040) 1 Gbps requires 4 Gb FC transceivers (#5710 or #5720).
  • SFP Transceivers:
    • 8 Gb Fibre Channel short wave SFP transceivers (#5730) for speeds of 8 Gbps, 4 Gbps, or 2 Gbps Fibre Channel up to 100 meters on multimode optical fiber.
    • 8 Gb Fibre Channel long wave SFP transceivers (#5740) for speeds of 8 Gbps, 4 Gbps, or 2 Gbps Fibre Channel up to 10 kilometers on single mode optical fiber.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

Planning information, including customer responsibilities, physical planning, and installability is available in the specific product planning manuals on the following Web site

http://www.cisco.com/go/ibm/storage

You are responsible for downloading or obtaining from IBM, and installing designated Machine Code (microcode, basic input/output system code (called "BIOS"), utility programs, device drivers, and diagnostics delivered with an IBM machine) and other software updates in a timely manner from an IBM Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that IBM provides. You may request IBM to install Machine Code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.

Cable orders

Integrated SFP+ Twinax cables are available up to five meters in length for use within a rack.

In many situations, the required lengths and installation of fiber optic cables will be unique to each customer's configuration and facility specifications. Product support services, offered by IBM Global Services' Site and Connectivity Solutions, can provide assistance for these unique cabling and installation requirements.

Security, auditability, and control

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.

MES discount applicable

Equal to the volume commitment discount.

Field installable features

Yes

Warranty period

One year

This feature assumes the same warranty or maintenance terms as the machine in which it is installed for the full warranty or maintenance period announced for such machine.

Customer setup

Yes

Machine code

Same license terms and conditions as base machine.

IBM maintenance is available for machine type 3722 products when the machine type exits Cisco extended warranty:

Post warranty maintenance is available for the 3722 product hardware and firmware features and must be the same coverage as the base chassis. The chassis can have either Cisco extended warranty or IBM Managed Maintenance Services (MMS) for Cisco storage maintenance. Post warranty maintenance for the feature must match that of the chassis.

If the 3722 product is currently under Cisco extended warranty, the feature will include 1 year of Cisco enhanced warranty. The customer will need to purchase enough Cisco extended warranty for the feature coverage post warranty to match the chassis coverage.

If the 3722 is under IBM maintenance, the feature post warranty maintenance will automatically be billed to the customer and covered. Global Technology Services (GTS) will need to buy Cisco support post warranty for the feature.
