16 ports of 10GbE with SFP+ (XFP) Possible?

Unanswered Question
Oct 10th, 2008


Looking for a switch solution which could support 16 ports of 10GbE via XFP, and about a dozen 1GbE RJ45 ports.

I looked at the Nexus 5000, but as far as I can tell it only offers 12 x 10GbE ports.

I need something with some serious backplane. Our loading figures are around 800 megabytes (not bits) per second to a 10GbE RAID array port using iSCSI.

Also cannot have the big Nexus 7000 or anything huge like a 6500.

Much appreciated.


I have this problem too.
