Looking to use 2 x QSFP+ (V160) links between X670-G2 or X770 for a SAN type environment , the link will be between two data centers on the same site , breaking the Qspf+ into fiber hydra cables .

Hi Rod,

I assume that you are using the QSFP ports, partitioned in 2 time 4x10gig links and form a LAG towards the SAN?
If the answer is yes, the hashing possibilities are similar to any LAG withing EXOS.

Many Thanks

Ok we have 8 x 10 gig links then .. its what I thought just had to make sure ..
this is for a proposed SAN installation , is there a better way of connecting these units for this SAN solution.

Regards

Rod
