Designed for large, virtualized data centers and clouds, the Extreme Networks® BlackDiamond X8 switch provides high density 10GbE and 40GbE. Furthermore, the BlackDiamond X8 was built with green operations in mind, resulting in low per port power consumption, which when combined with high density, can result in a lower Total Cost of Ownership.
With massive scalability, the BlackDiamond X8 offers 2.56Tbps per slot capacity and more than 20Tbps total switching capacity with 768 ports of line rate 10GbE or 192 ports of line rate 40GbE in a single chassis. All of this is offered in a relatively small footprint of only 14.5 RU, or one-third of a standard rack. The BlackDiamond X8 provides a standards-based "fabric in a box" which can eliminate expensive multiple-box and multi-tier solutions-along with their inter-device connectivity, uplink bandwidth and latency challenges.
