Hyper converged configuration and MDS 9509 directors, 9148



Our network team was talking about using hyper-converged adapters for our SAN fabric. We currently use core-edge topology using 9509 directors and 9148 edge switches. What needs to be done(or can it be done), for the 9509, and 9148 switch types.


I did not see any capabilities for this when reading about the 9509.


Thank you!

what specifically do they refer to as "hyper-converged adapters" ?

Thank you Dynamox! They are talking about putting in (and I am using their words), an adapter or line card that allows this type of connection into our MDS 9509. And in the 9148

i can only think of FCoE card which are actually going EOS so that's not even an option anymore.  Can they give you any specifics of what they are thinking ?
