The Next Wave Data Center Rack Management Switch
Data center networks face changes with hardware and meeting the requirements of the software it hosts. Quanta Cloud Technology provides a series of Bare Metal Switches, the QuantaMesh BMS product line, that addresses these changes in the data center market. The QuantaMesh BMS product lines support speeds up to 100G speeds on their Ethernet Switches. To meet the requirements of high performance, high availability, fast scale out, low latency performance, and continuous serviceability in data center applications, the QuantaMesh BMS product line is the best choice.
BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) embedded on the server as the core of the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) architecture can now be implemented in the Ethernet switch. In addition to providing health monitoring of the temperature, power status, and cooling fans; BMC also aids in the deployment and management of software and hardware peripherals.
QuantaMesh T1048-LY4R supports 48 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T and 4 1/10G SFP+ ports equipped with BMC in a compact rack unit size. T1048-LY4R plays a management role in a server rack with not only Ethernet switch functions but also IPMI 2.0 compliance. With ONIE (Open Network Installation Environment) pre-loaded it can be used with any OS which supports the ONIE installer to achieve agile installation and fast response for today’s IT demands.
