Is it accurate to say that the UCS does not allow blade server to blade server communication across the backplane? It is said that the traffic must go through the 2000 FEX, up to the ToR (6100 or Nexus) and then back down to the receiving blade.

If that is so, I am wondering what the reasoning is behind such an architecture. It seems like an awful waste to lose one of the main benefits of deploying a blade chassis.
