A Powerful Spine/Leaf Switch for Data center and Cloud Computing
The T3048-LY8 is a high performance and low latency layer 2/3/4 Ethernet switch with 48 SFP+ ports and up to 6 QSFP+ port in a 1U form factor. Each 40G QSFP+ port can be independently configured as 40GbE or 4 x 10GbE ports. Built for Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) data centre deployment, high performance computing clusters and financial applications, the QuantaMesh T3048-LY8 – with its very high port density and high performance as well as ultra-low latency characteristic – is ideal for demanding workloads and provides optimal TCO.
With the rapid adoption of cloud computing and the proliferation of big data and parallel calculations, the need for datacenter networking devices is growing exponentially, making network automation a critical factor. Supporting auto installation, RESTful, Ansible and PSME (Pooled System Management Engine), T3048-LY8 facilitates easy deployment to build-up a massive data centre with infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).
Network virtualization is becoming an important topic of datacenters. QuantaMesh T3048-LY8 offers a hardware-based VXLAN feature to support virtual machine mobility. Without limitation of 4K VLANs, VXLAN enables network scale out across L3 subnets and can support up to 16.7M possible virtual networks.
The T3048-LY8 is designed for high availability from both hardware and software perspectives. The key features include:
- 1+1 hot-swappable power supplies
- 2+1 hot-swappable fans
- Spanning Tree with Guarding Features
- Up to 64 Groups of LACP with per Group 32 Member Ports
- Multi-chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG)
- Up to 48 paths ECMP routing for load balancing and redundancy
- Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)
Software Defined Network (SDN)
SDN is the cool term in the cloud business as SDN has emerged as a new approach to support open, vendor-agnostic, and programmable networks. T3048-LY8 is equipped with OpenFlow v1.3 features to fulfil the needs of modern data centre applications.
