The Lenovo RackSwitch G8296 that leverages 10 Gb SFP+ and 40 Gb QSFP+ Ethernet technology is specifically designed for the data center. It is ideal for big data, cloud, and optimized workload solutions. It is a full-featured switch that delivers line-rate, high-bandwidth switching, filtering, and traffic queuing without delaying data. Large data-center grade buffers help keep traffic moving, while the redundant hot-swap power supplies and fans along with numerous availability features help provide high availability for business sensitive traffic. The RackSwitch G8296 is ideal for latency sensitive applications such as high-performance computing clusters and financial applications. The RackSwitch G8296 supports Lenovo Virtual Fabric, which helps clients significantly reduce cost and complexity related to I/O requirements of many virtualization deployments. Virtual Fabric helps reduce the number of multiple I/O adapters to a single dual-port 10 GbE adapter and reduces the number of cables and required upstream switch ports.
