Overview:

The HP FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series is a family of high performance and ultra-low-latency 40 GbE top-of-rack (ToR) data center switches. The switch series is part of the HP FlexFabric data center solution, which is a cornerstone of the FlexNetwork architecture.

The FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series is ideally suited for deployment at the aggregation or server access layer of large enterprise data centers, or at the core layer of medium-sized enterprises data centers.

With the increase pace of deploying virtualized applications, adopting software-defined networking, and the and server-to-server traffic, many data centers now require spine and ToR switch innovations that will meet their requirements. The HP FlexFabric 5930 is optimized to meet the increasing requirements for higher-performance server connectivity, convergence of Ethernet and storage traffic, the capability to handle virtual environments, and ultra-low latency.

A summary of the highlights of the FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series:

  • VXLAN and NVGRE hardware support for overlay networks
