The 6324 FI is out! What amazing hardware! This is a whole UCS in a 5108 Chassis.
Now what I wonder is if this is just code? Being able to take a single chassis and install proper code and have a stand alone UCS would be GREAT. This will be “Cool” if it is a special chassis, but a GAME CHANGER if any chassis will do with code only (and maybe certain models of IOM’s that might be on hand anyhow).
Appear’s a new IOM is needed to make this work in a 5108 Chassis.
Cisco UCS 6324 Fabric Interconnect
The Cisco UCS 6324 Fabric Interconnect Fabric Interconnect (Figure 3) is a 10 Gigabit Ethernet, FCoE, and Fibre Channel switch offering up to 500-Gbps throughput and up to four unified ports and one scalability port.
The Cisco UCS 6324 Fabric Interconnect extends the Cisco UCS architecture into environments with requirements for smaller domains. Providing the same unified server and networking capabilities as in the full-scale Cisco UCS solution, the Cisco UCS 6324 Fabric Interconnect embeds the connectivity within the Cisco UCS 5108 Blade Server Chassis to provide a smaller domain of up to 15 servers (8 blade servers and up to 7 direct-connect rack servers).
Cisco when you sending me one to checkout? 🙂
