    SX1012 in a SAN Environment Question

    jpelletier@litchfieldsd.org

      Hello,

       

      I would like to start using Mellanox equipment with a new SAN upgrade I'm planning out. I have a couple of questions that hopefully someone might be able to help me with. I want to use 2 SX1012's to connect 4 VMWARE hosts, a Nimble CS1000 SAN, and HP 5400zl core. I'd like to use the 40GBE to 10GBE breakout cables and have everything running Ethernet and SFP+. What would be the ideal connection to make between both SX1012's? I didn't know about InfiniBand until I started researching Mellanox, can that be used in conjunction with Ethernet protocol? Attached is a diagram of our setup. I appreciate anyone's time and guidance.

       

      Thanks!
