15 The industry s first flat SAN architecture Eliminates 50% of SAN Fabric cost, complexity and bottlenecks VCE vblock 700 Cisco and EMC Complex, Multi-Tier Infrastructure HP VirtualSystem BladeSystem and 3PAR One-tier, flat SAN Save time Save Cost Improve Performance 2.5X Faster provisioning SAN Switch Layer Fabric Interconnect Layer 86% Fewer components 55% Lower latency Eliminate SAN switches and HBAs Faster Fibre Channel storage provisioning Single layer Fibre Channel storage network Massive simplification of your fabric management 17

16 Optimized QoS for any virtualized environment Bandwidth Optimization based on real-time usage Max Min Max Min Improve bandwidth utilization & performance Minimum guaranteed and maximum is best effort Share unused bandwidth proportionally among FlexNICs and FlexHBAs Ideal for bursty applications such as VM migration/backup Supported on Flex-10/10D, Flex-10 and FlexFabric adapters 18

17 Virtual Connect Priority Queue QoS Flexible options to meet different service levels Run VOIP, video and mission critical apps with confidence Simple setup QoS does not have to be complex Q L2 Priority Classification based classes 2 fixed - best effort and lossless (FCoE) 2 predefined - real time and medium (not enabled) 4 user defined

18 VC Traffic with and without QoS Traffic pre-4.00 or QoS pass-through Traffic with QoS Without QoS configured, traffic flows on a first in first out(fifo) basis During congestion, the traffic at the tail of the queue is dropped as shown above for packet number #6 20 With QoS configured, traffic flows according to resource allocation and priority Packets may enter in one order but exit in a different order based on priority During congestion, some packets may be dropped based on queue resource allocation

19 Network designed for virtualization

20 Virtual Connect is designed to ensure networking performance for virtualized, cloud-ready data centers Optimized for server to server traffic Supports East -West traffic flows Avoid increased latency of routing all traffic to network core Ideal for vmotion and other server-to-server traffic Avoid oversubscription 1:1 oversubscription within a single VC module 22

21 Improve upstream and East/West performance Reduce stacking and uplink bottlenecks Best Practice Configuration 4X10Gb redundant uplinks 4x10Gb internal stacking link 2x10Gb external stacking link capacity Increase traffic capacity North, east/west 23
