Welcome to UCS. The following doc would be good starting point for 6200 series Fbaric Interconnect model.
Let us know if you have specific questions about it.
Padma has linked the product page for UCS. There is no 6250, but a 6248 and 6296 fabric Interconnect. 6200 is the latest 2nd Gen series of fabric interconnect. The xx48 & xx96 refer to the point count on the devices.
The 6200 series Fabric Interconnect is similar hardware to a Nexus 5500, with additional memory, flash and runs UCS manager software on top of it.
Thanks to both of you , I got it now , I am trying to find a way to decypher different models of the UCS , do you have any Docs that would help me memorize , I found that there are a lot.
A place to start would be:
Under each of the product categories, if you select "show products" you will see that it opens up and you can then select "Compare Models" for those categories with more than one option.
I would like to know the differentiate between UCS 6200 and Nexus 5500 feature.
I saw in the FlexPod structure, it require both UCS6200 FI and Nexus 5500.
If it was the same hardware, could you point out the different?
In a nutshell, they are both built off the Nexus platform, but the UCS 6200 is the fabric interconnect which has UCS Manager embedded in the interconnect and the Nexus 5k is a true FCoE switch and I am sure you understand what FCoE is???
If you are wondering can you take a 5k and make it a FI, then the answer is no. Because the 5k can do Fabric and Ethernet, then in a Flexpod configuration it could act as a fabric switch for storage.
That is in a nutshell, I am sure Padma, Rob and Michael could expand, but I will start here.
