VSPEX BLUE with EMC Connectrix VDX-6740B
VSPEX BLUE requires a Top of Rack Switch whether you are deploying a single appliance or 8 in a cluster. The goal of this document is to guide an installer through the process of connecting EMC VSPEX BLUE with EVO:RAIL appliances to EMC Connectrix VDX-6740B top-of-rack switches by Brocade and configuring the switches to connect to an end customer's IP network.
VSPEX BLUE is a 2U 4 node hardware/software hyper-converged appliance running EMC VSPEX BLUE Software and VMware® EVO:RAIL that combines VMware compute, networking, and storage resources to create a simple, easy to deploy, all-in-one solution. VSPEX BLUE with EVO:RAIL enables power-on to VM creation in minutes, radically easy VM deployment, easy non-disruptive patch and upgrades and simplified scale-out.
This attached guide walks you through the steps to add a single cluster of VSPEX BLUE appliances to either one or two Connectrix VDX-6740B top-of-rack switches. Additional clusters may be connected to the Connectrix VDX-6740B switches.
