Improved 10Gb Ethernet connectivity for M-Series bladesSimplify 10GbE blade deployment and management with the Dell Networking M8024-k. Provide 10GbE connectivity for up to 16 M-Series blade servers equipped with the latest KR-based 10Gb network daughter cards (NDCs) or mezzanine cards.
Not ready for 10GbE? Don't worry. The M8024-k also supports GbE connections, to both the server and the local area network (LAN), helping ensure that you will be ready to quickly adopt 10GbE when the time comes. This kind of flexibility, along with the improved 10GbE bandwidth and performance, helps you meet the changing demands of data centers that embrace virtualization and other I/O (input/output)-intensive technologies.
The Dell Networking M8024-k is also an FCoE transit switch that can be attached to an external converged data center network to extend an available FCoE fabric. With the 4.2 firmware upgrade, the M8024-k uses FCoE Initialization Protocol (FIP) to perform functions of FC_BB_E device discovery, initialization and maintenance.
The FIP snooping feature enables the M8024-k to link Dell™ M-Series blades to an external top-of-rack or end-of-row FCoE forwarding switch and provides FCoE connectivity to the servers. This feature, along with Internet SCSI optimization, iSCSI TLV, and DCBx discovery and monitoring, enables seamless 10GbE performance in an end-to-end data center solution.
Connect with the benefits of virtualization
Meet the high-bandwidth demands of multi-core CPUs and server virtualization with up to 24 10GbE ports in the Dell Networking M8024-k. When combined with PowerEdge™ M710HD blades that feature 10Gb network daughter cards, the M8024-k provides end-to-end 10Gb Fabric A connectivity, leaving room for growth or additional technologies in Fabrics B and C.
Supporting connectivity to M-Series KR-based 10Gb network interface cards (NICs) and converged network adapters (CNAs), the M8024-k opens the door to cutting-edge networking features, such as NIC partitioning (NPAR), single-root I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) and iSCSI.
Flex and grow with FlexIO and scalable stacking
Build for the future with 16 internal 1/10GbE ports, four integrated external 1/10GbE enhanced small-form-factor pluggable (SFP+) ports and a FlexIO bay for easy growth as your business expands. With FlexIO, modular uplinks can be added or swapped as needed:
- 4-port SFP+ FlexIO Module
- 2-port 10GBASE-T FlexIO Module
- 3-port CX-4 FlexIO Module
