Scale out Fileserver Cluster Network configuration with following parameters:

The following configuration leverages 2x 1GB Ethernet, 4x 10GB Ethernet NICs and LOM (LAN on Motherboard) and 2x Fibre channel connections. There are 4 NICs useable for SMB 3.x.x Multichannel.

The storage is provisioned to the Scale out Fileserver Hosts via Fibrechannel.


 Pro’s and Con’s of that solution

 Pro Con
– High Bandwidth
– Full fault redundant
– Fibrechannel ist most common SAN technology
– many NICs
– a lot of NICs and Switches needed
– a lot of technologies involved
– no separed Team for Cluster and Management
– expensiv

 Switches

Switch name Bandwidth Switchtyp
1GBE SW01 1 GBit/s physical stacked or independed
1GBE SW02 1 GBit/s physical stacked or independed
10GBE SW01 10 GBit/s physical stacked or independed
10GBE SW02 10 GBit/s physical stacked or independed
FC SW01 4/8 GB FC/s physical stacked or independed
FC SW02 4/8 GB FC/s physical stacked or independed
