I have been asked to research what would be needed to provide our servers with 10 Gig interfaces at our data center. I am not an architect and need some help deciding on what to use. Along with my own research I thought it best to inquire here as well.
I have worked with the Nexus (5k/2k-FEX) in the past but for our small company this seems like overkill. I am seeing that the 9300 series pops up when I search online. I am researching these and other options online.
My questions are as follows:
What type of switch(es) works best for a small business?
Are the 9300's FEX switches or stand alone? (Configurable with out a "Parent" switch)
What type of cabling, fiber or copper, is recommended? I am thinking 10 Gig fiber (OM3) may be best but it would depend on the NIC.
I will continue my research in parallel to asking here.
