Cisco UCS 6324 Fabric Interconnectview expanded image

Get Flexible, Scalable, Converged Infrastructure

Reduce costs for small and medium-sized businesses, remote and branch offices, or at the edge of larger IT environments. Part of the Cisco UCS Mini solution, the 6324 Fabric Interconnect extends the Cisco Unified Computing System architecture into environments that require smaller domains.

Features and Capabilities


The Cisco 6324 Fabric Interconnect provides the management and communication backbone for Cisco UCS Mini. The chassis, blades, and rack-mount servers that are attached to interconnects are part of a single highly available management domain.

Because it supports Cisco Unified Fabric, the 6324 Fabric Interconnect offers customers flexibility to support LAN and storage connectivity for all servers within its domain at configuration. Typically deployed in redundant pairs, the 6324 Fabric Interconnect delivers uniform access to both networks and storage to facilitate a fully virtualized environment.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Cisco UCS 6300 Series Fabric Interconnects offer several key features and benefits that lower TCO. Some examples include:

  • One cohesive system for both blade and rack servers
  • Ports capable of line-rate, low-latency, lossless 1- and 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and 8-, 4-, and 2-Gbps Fibre Channel
  • Centralized management with Cisco UCS Manager software

Cisco Data Center Virtual Machine Fabric Extender Technology

Virtual Machine Fabric Extender technology helps to enable a consistent operational model for, and visibility between, physical and virtual environments. Our technology also simplifies the enforcement of security and network policy when virtual machines move across hosts.

Cisco SingleConnect Technology

SingleConnect is an easy, intelligent, and efficient way to connect and manage computing in the data center.

SingleConnect provides one connection for:

  • Rack servers and blade servers
  • LAN, SAN, and systems management
  • Physical servers and virtual machines
