1.A customer has requested that you provide them with an architecture and bill-of-materials for a stack of
top-of- rack switches. The customer has 34 HPE DL360 servers in the rack, each with four 1GBASE-T
Ethernet ports which need to be connected to the network.
The customer is upgrading 50% of the 1GBASE-T Ethernet ports on the servers to 10GBASE-T Ethernet
ports and needs the switching to support the upgraded servers. They are opposed to a chassis switch, and
want to keep the number of managed devices on the network to a minimum.
Which architecture meets the customer requirements?
A. One VSX stack of four Aruba 8320 48-port 1/10GBASE-T switches
B. Two IRF stacks of two HPE 5710 48-port 1/10GBASE-T switches
C. One IRF stack of four HPE 5710 48-port 1/10GBASE-T switches
D. Two VSX stacks of two Aruba 8320 48-port 1/10GBASE-T switches
Needs 4 switches for port count, customer wants minimum of managed devices so one stack, VSX only
supports two switches so must be an IRF based stack. As to ShaunSong's comment, 10GBaseT ports also
negotiate 1000BaseT so are inherently 1/10Gb capable.
2.A client needs a data center network for a highly-virtualized server environment.
They have the following requirements:
• 25 Gb connectivity from the servers to the top-of-rack switches
• support for iSCSl storage
• lowest possible latency between their VM farms, which are contained In separate cabinets and connected
to different top-of-rack switches within the data center
• support for Python script interpretation and open APIs
Which networking product line and architecture should you recommend?
A. ArubaOS-Swrtch configured in a spine/leaf architecture with 5406R switches at the spine and 2930M
B. ArubaOS-CX configured in a spine/leaf architecture with 8325 switches at the spine and 8320 leaf
switches utilizing VSX between cabinets
C. ArubaOS-CX configured in spine/leaf architecture with 8325 switches at t
