SimpliVity Direct Connect to 10 GbE Switched Migration

In a two node SimpliVity deployment there is no requirement for 10 GbE switching. The SimpliVity nodes are directly connected to provide connectivity for the SimpliVity Data Virtualization Platform (DVP) between nodes. As the environment grows adding addition SimpliVity nodes or compute nodes may be required. This requires 10 GbE switching for SimpliVity Storage traffic between SimpliVity nodes within the same datacenter and/or between SimpliVity nodes and compute nodes.
