ODA: What is needed for 10Gbps connectivity?
By uwes on Jan 31, 2012
To connect the network ports of the Oracle Database Appliance to an existing 10 GbE network infrastructure you can purchase the Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+ ) transceivers and/or cables (either optical or copper).
For copper cables, the following cables can be purchased from Oracle Sun. These cables have built-in SFP+
transceivers and there is no need to purchase separate SFP+
transceivers for the network ports on the database servers
For optical cables, the customers must purchase SFP+ transceivers
(either Short Range (SR) or Long Range (LR)) for each of the
network ports and then plug in the appropriate optical cable.
Currently Oracle sells both the SR and LR SFP+ transceivers.
|10 GbE Transceiver SR (SFP+)||X2129A-N|
|10 GbE Transceiver LR (SFP+)||X5562A-Z|
In addition to these tranceivers, customers must purchase the appropriate LC-LC terminated fiber optic cables from a third party vendor.
