Check out these slides from SpiceWorld London to learn about the first and only full integration of servers, storage, networking and management in a shared platform designed specifically for a small office environment. Why you should consider PowerEdge VRTX.

• Limited office space means you need a small solution.
• IT headcount is limited so you need an IT infrastructure that is easy to manage and does not require specialised installation or management expertise.
• You have too much data that you need to store securely.
• Workforce growth: you are connecting to more such as other offices, suppliers, customers, or the cloud.

  • 30. PCIe Switching Fab A - Refers to the blade host Ethernet network, which connects the blade servers to the outside world through an I/O module (IOM) which can be either a pass-through or switch Fab-B refers to the PCIe fabric, which connects the mezzanine card on the blade (installed in the Fab-B adapter socket) to the Shared PCIe infrastructure Fab-C refers to the PCIe fabric, which connects the mezzanine card on the blade (installed in the Fab-C adapter socket) to the Shared PCIe infrastructure
  • 31. PCIe Mezzanine • The PCIe Mezzanine card provides the interface between server nodes and PCIe switches. • No other mezzanine cards, such as Ethernet, Fibre Channel or InfiniBand are allowed in servers configured for the VRTX system.
