  • 25. Network Switching and Why it MattersThe Problem: The PureFlex Difference:Blade to blade communication flows north- Do more with your servers and reducesouth through the TOR, causing latency from network delays. Node to Noderequest / response traffic. Added network latency communication happens within thewill impact the overall workload the servers can Nexus 6100 Communication Cisco UCS is contained Communication within chassis between blades running at requires traffic 10GB Ethernet to Nexus 6100 Why this matters:  Reduces switch latency  Additional servers needed to overcome performance loss in network delays  Low latency, web-serving, and database apps create significant server to server chatter and stress on the network25 © 2012 IBM Corporation
