- for Flex System x220 Compute Node; x240 Compute Node; x240 M5
The network architecture on the IBM Flex System platform has been specifically designed to address network challenges, giving you a very scalable way to integrate, optimize and automate your data center. The IBM Flex System FC5022 2-port 16 GB FC adapter enables high-speed access for compute nodes to an external storage area network (SAN). This adapter is based on Brocade architecture, and offers end-to-end 16 GB connectivity to SAN. It has enhanced features like N Port trunking and N Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) as well as boot-from-the-SAN with automatic LUN discovery and end-to-end Server Application Optimization (SAO).
