What is Isilon Generation5?


I read the following document.

[Isilon Node firmware Package version 10.0.1 Release Notes]

In this document, EMC says the following warning on page2.


Only update firmware with this package if your cluster contains Generation 6 hardware or Generation 5 with 40G Ethernet cards.

If your cluster does not contain Generation 6 or Gen5 with 40GB Ethernet cards, update your firmware with  the 9.3.5 Node Firmware package.

I'd like to know which hardwares are Gen6 or Gen5.

How can I specify the Generation of the node??

And I'd like to know what is "40GB Ethernet cards" on Gen5.

Is the 40GB Ethernet card different from IB card?

If anyone know, please let me know.
