For a rack containing a smaller nubmer of servers (5 at the moment, going to stay in this area), I am looking to replace the currently aging 100Mbit switch with a 1Gb switch.
This is for the backend between the servers. I expect some iSCSI traffic there, so a 10gbit option would be nice (preferably for two ports, as extension modules). I dont need management, this is a pure backend of an internal cluster. I do VLAN, but there is no sensible management the switch can do there.
I would like:
- 1RU only, obviously
- preferable limited moving parts.
- Low price ;)
- Enough power to run at least half the ports in full speed at the same time.
