Wouldn't you like to consolidate legacy hierarchical architectures based on north/south designs with oversubscription bottlenecks into a flat, east/west architecture to increase data throughput and reduce latency with only a single hop within large domains of virtual machines or compute modules? The HPE Synergy 40Gb F8 Switch Module master module, based on composable fabric is designed for Composable Infrastructure. Its disaggregated, rack-scale design uses a master/satellite architecture to consolidate data center network connections, reduce hardware and scale network bandwidth across multiple Synergy frames. This master module, contains managed switch networking capabilities that extend connectivity to satellite frames through Synergy Interconnect Link Modules that decreases top of rack switch needs and substantially reduces cost. The reduction in components also simplifies fabric management while consuming fewer ports at the data center aggregation layer.
