The Cisco SFS InfiniBand Redundancy Configuration Guide contains redundancy configuration information for use with Enterprise solutions that contain Cisco InfiniBand (IB) Server Fabric Switches (SFS). It describes hardware and software redundancies and redundant configurations that are available in the Cisco SFS IB environment.
Note For expansions of acronyms and abbreviations used in this publication, see "Acronyms and Abbreviations."
This guide describes the various types of hardware and software redundancies available with the different products that are available to build an SFS IB environment. It also describes the various typical redundant configurations that a user may build in this environment and includes a typical use case that has no single point of failure.
The redundancies described in this guide include the following topics:
•Cisco SFS 7008P and SFS 7000 Series Server Switch Redundancy
•InfiniBand Server Switch Module Redundancy for the IBM BladeCenter
•Cisco SFS 3504 and Cisco SFS 3000 Series Server Switch Redundancy
•Subnet Manager Redundancy
•Host Redundancy, and IPoIB and SRP Redundancies
•Ethernet Gateway and IPoIB Redundancies
•Fibre Channel Gateway and SRP Redundancies
•Typical Redundancy Use Case
