A.7 Connecting Exalogic Quarter Rack and Exalogic Full Rack

Figure A-7 illustrates how an Exalogic quarter rack is connected to an Exalogic full rack on the same InfiniBand fabric.

Figure A-7 Exalogic Quarter Rack and Exalogic Full Rack

Description of Figure A-7 follows
Description of "Figure A-7 Exalogic Quarter Rack and Exalogic Full Rack"

In Figure A-7, NM2-GW represents a Sun Network QDR InfiniBand Gateway Switch (leaf switches)

A.8 Connecting Two Exalogic Half Racks

Figure A-8 illustrates how two Exalogic half racks are connected on the same InfiniBand fabric.

Figure A-8 Two Exalogic Machine Half Racks

Description of Figure A-8 follows
Description of "Figure A-8 Two Exalogic Machine Half Racks"

In Figure A-8, NM2-GW represents a Sun Network QDR InfiniBand Gateway Switch (leaf switches). NM2-36P represents a Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36 (spine switch).

In this configuration, four up-links from the gateway switch (leaf switch) are cabled to the Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36 (spine switches). Each leaf switch is connected to each spine switch.

A.9 Connecting Exalogic Half Rack and Exalogic Full Rack

Figure A-9 illustrates how an Exalogic half rack is connected to an Exalogic full rack on the same InfiniBand fabric.

Figure A-9 Exalogic Half Rack and Exalogic Full Rack

Description of Figure A-9 follows
Description of "Figure A-9 Exalogic Half Rack and Exalogic Full Rack"

In Figure A-9, NM2-GW represents a Sun Network QDR InfiniBand Gateway Switch (leaf switches). NM2-36P represents a Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36 (spine switch).

In this configuration, six up-links from the gateway switch (leaf switch) are cabled to the Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36 (spine switches). Each leaf switch is connected to each spine switch.

A.10 Connecting Two Exalogic Full Racks

Figure A-10 illustrates how two Exalogic full racks are connected on the same InfiniBand fabric.

Figure A-10 Two Exalogic Full Racks

Description of Figure A-10 follows
Description of "Figure A-10 Two Exalogic Full Racks "
