Nutanix on HPE ® ProLiant ® 3. HPE ProLiant Integrated Systems | 9 Figure 2: HPE ProLiant Network Topology The dedicated iLO port can connect either to the same ToR switches or to a set of dedicated management switches. Nutanix recommends separating the management network from the data network as shown in the figure above, but this configuration is not required. HPE Composable Fabric can also help simplify network deployment, management, and performance optimization. HPE Composable Fabric for Nutanix Traditional enterprise networks were designed to focus on north-south workload traffic between clients and servers; they were not designed to handle the distributed and varied nature of modern scale-out applications that require machine-to-machine communication over the network. With traditional networks, bandwidth is the same for all workloads. However, in the modern datacenter workloads vary in their performance and bandwidth needs, often requiring modifications to the network. HPE Composable Fabric is designed for today's highly virtualized, software-defined infrastructure environments. It combines intelligent control software with state-of-the-art Ethernet switching hardware (fabric modules) to deliver a unique high-bandwidth and low-latency fabric that enables orchestrated, direct workload-to-workload network connectivity across the datacenter. HPE Composable Fabric delivers the physical switching infrastructure, virtualization software, centralized fabric management, and APIs for deploying a complete, highly scalable datacenter fabric that delivers optimum operational agility and workload performance for Nutanix environments.
