Networking Options (with 10, 25, or 40GB Data Switches)

Standard configurations include two types of Ethernet switches – one for consolidation of management/IPMI traffic and another for use in networking data traffic. The management switch is common to all storage options. The data switch options range from a 10Gbps switch (for "High Performance" option), a 25Gbps switch (for the "Balanced" option) and a 40Gbps switch (for the "All-Flash", "Storage Optimized", and "X-Large Storage" options).

1 - The 10 GbE Data switch and 40 GbE Data switch options require a Cumulus OS for all switches in the solution. The Cumulus OS licenses for both the data and management switches are obtained through Supermicro using the provided SKUs.
2 - The 25 GbE Data switch option requires the Supermicro (SMIS) OS for all switches in the solution. The SMIS OS for the management switch is obtained using the provided SKU. The SMIS OS for the data switch is included with the switch.
3 - Cumulus Linux is a powerful open network operating system that allows you to automate, customize and scale: www.cumulusnetworks.com/products/cumulus-linux/



Build your own with pre-validated configurations

Use one of our pre-validated configuration to build your storage cluster using one of the pre-validated configuration.

Supermicro and SUSE worked together to build wide range of storage (CEPH OSD node) configurations to cater various use cases. Based on requirements and use cases, users can use one of the below storage (CEPH OSD node) configurations for their deployment.
