Dell EMC Metro node 7.0.1 Product Guide

Configuration highlights

A metro node primarily consists of:

  • Two hardware nodes

  • The two nodes are directly and redundantly connected using two Cat6 shielded cables for management connectivity and two Dell Direct-Attach-Copper (DAC) cables with SFP plugs for local data com connectivity.
  • Two 32 Gig, 2 port FC HBA for FE and BE connectivity.
  • The metro node management stack runs on each node in the cluster. Each node has a public Ethernet port which provides cluster management services when connected to the network.
Figure 1. Configuration highlights

Metro node conforms to established world wide naming (WWN) guidelines that can be used for zoning. It also supports Dell EMC storage and arrays from other storage vendors, such as HDS, HP, and IBM. Metro node provides storage federation for operating systems and applications that support clustered file systems, including both physical and virtual server environments with VMware, ESX, and Microsoft Hyper-V. The network fabrics from Brocade and Cisco are supported in metro node.
