Cisco UCS 6332 Fabric Interconnect

Scalable, 40 Gbps Converged Infrastructure

Gain uniform access to both networks and storage with the Cisco UCS 6332 32-Port Fabric Interconnect. The 6332 is a core part of the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS), and is typically deployed in redundant pairs.

Features and Capabilities

The 6332 Fabric Interconnect is the management and communication backbone for Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers, C-Series Rack Servers, and 5100 Series Blade Server Chassis. All servers attached to 6332 Fabric Interconnects become part of one highly available management domain.

Because they support unified fabric, Cisco UCS 6300 Series Fabric Interconnects provide both LAN and SAN connectivity for all servers within their domains.

Features and capabilities:

  • Bandwidth up to 2.56 Tbps
  • 32 40-Gbps ports in one 1 rack unit (RU)
  • Support for 4x10-Gbps breakout cables
  • Ports capable of line-rate, low-latency, lossless 40 Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
  • Centralized unified management with Cisco UCS Manager
  • Efficient cooling and serviceability

Highly Scalable Architecture

Cisco Fabric Extender Technology scales up to 20 chassis in one unified system without additional complexity. The result is that customers can eliminate dedicated chassis management and blade switches, and reduce cabling.

Virtual-Machine-Optimized Services

Cisco Data Center Virtual Machine Fabric Extender technology helps enable a consistent operational model and visibility between physical and virtual environments. The technology also simplifies enforcement of security and network policy when moving virtual machines across hosts.

Cisco SingleConnect Technology

Cisco SingleConnect is an easy, intelligent, and efficient way to connect and manage computing in the data center. SingleConnect offers one connection for:

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