Data centers continue to evolve, creating a need for an infrastructure that can support growth in Virtual Machines (VMs), distributed applications, and data, as well as the transition to cloud-based computing—without compromising performance. The ExtremeSwitching VDX® 6740 and the VDX family of switches deliver the performance, flexibility, and efficiency essential to modern data centers, including cloud and highly virtualized environments

The VDX 6740 (Figure 1) offers 48 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) SFP+ ports and four 40 GbE QSFP+ ports. Each 40 GbE port can be broken out into four independent 10 GbE SFP+ ports, providing an additional 16 10 GbE SFP+ ports. In addition, the switch features low power consumption, consuming 1 watt per 10 GbE port.

The VDX 6740T (Figure 2) offers 48 10GBASE-T ports and four 40 GbE QSFP+ ports. Each 40 GbE port can be broken out into four independent 10 GbE SFP+ ports, providing an additional 16 10 GbE SFP+ ports. The switch also features low power consumption, consuming less than 5 watts per 10 GbE port.
