Sun Blade 6000 Virtualised 40 GbE NEM
Flexible and Cost-Effective Network Connectivity for Virtualisation[6000-nem]
The Sun Blade 6000 Virtualized 40 GbE Network Express Module (NEM) is a multifunction PCIe 2.0 connectivity module for the Sun Blade 6000 Modular System. Combining virtualized 40 GbE or 10 GbE network connectivity, support for SAS-2 storage connectivity to storage modules in a single chassis and 1GbE pass-through, this NEM is a unique platform for simplifying datacenter networks without adding the extra cost of switches to manage. It utilizes an Oracle-designed 40 GbE NIC ASIC, that virtualizes the 40 GbE or 2x10GbE network connectivity across ten server modules in the Sun Blade 6000 chassis thus simplifying the networks by eliminating NICs for serves, switching for intra-blade communication and reducing cables by 10:1.
