Did you know?
The RackSwitch G8264CS simplifies deployment with its innovative and flexible Omni Port technology. The 12 Omni Ports on the G8264CS give clients the flexibility to choose a 10 Gb Ethernet, 4/8 Gb Fibre Channel, or both for upstream connections. In FC mode, Omni Ports provide convenient access to FC storage. The Omni Port technology that is provided on the G8264CS helps consolidate enterprise storage, networking, data, and management onto a simple-to-manage, efficient, and cost-effective single fabric. Also, the G8264CS can be used to create 252-node PODs or clusters with Flex System™ Interconnect Fabric.
The traditional approach of segmenting storage and data traffic has certain advantages, such as traffic isolation and independent administration. Nevertheless, it also poses several disadvantages, including higher infrastructure costs, complexity of management, and under-utilization of resources. Customers must invest in separate infrastructures for LAN, SAN, and inter-process communications (IPC) fabrics, including host adapters, cables, switching, routers, and other device-specific equipment.
The RackSwitch G8264CS is considered particularly suited for the following customers:
- Customers who want to implement a converged infrastructure with FCoE where the G8264CS acts as a Full Fabric FC/FCoE switch for the end-to-end FCoE configurations or as a Fibre Channel Forwarder (FCF) NPV Gateway that breaks out FC traffic for the native Fibre Channel SAN connectivity.
- Customers who are implementing a virtualized environment.
- Customers who require investment protection for 40 GbE network connectivity.
- Customers who want to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and improve performance while maintaining high levels of availability and security.
- Customers who want to avoid or minimize oversubscription, which can result in congestion and loss of performance.
The RackSwitch G8264CS offers the following features and benefits:
- Lowers the TCO with consolidation
By consolidating LAN and SAN networks and converging to a single fabric, clients can reduce the equipment that is needed in their data centers. This benefit significantly reduces the costs that are associated with energy and cooling, management and maintenance, and capital costs.
- Improves performance and increases availability
The G8264CS is an enterprise-class and full-featured data center switch that offers high-bandwidth performance with 36 1/10 Gb SFP+ connections, 12 Omni Ports that can be used for 10 Gb SFP+ connections, 4 Gb or 8 Gb Fibre Channel connections (or both) and four 40 Gb QSFP+ connections. The G8264CS switch delivers full line rate performance on Ethernet ports, which makes it an ideal choice for managing dynamic workloads across the network. This switch also provides a rich Layer 2 and Layer 3 feature set that is ideal for many of today’s data centers. Combined with redundant hot-swappable power and fans and numerous high availability features, this switch comes fully equipped to handle the demands of business-sensitive traffic.
- High performance
The 10 Gb/40 Gb switch provides the best combination of low latency, non-blocking line-rate switching, and ease of management. It has a throughput of up to 1.28 Tbps.
- Lower power and better cooling
The G8264CS uses as little as 253 W of power, which is a fraction of the power consumption of most competitive offerings. The front-to-rear or rear-to-front cooling design of the G8264CS switch reduces the costs of data center air conditioning by having airflow match the servers in the rack. In addition, variable speed fans help to automatically reduce power consumption.
- Support for Virtual Fabric
The G8264CS can help customers address I/O requirements for multiple NICs while reducing cost and complexity. By using Virtual Fabric, you can carve a physical dual-port NIC into multiple vNICs (2 - 8 vNICs) and create a virtual pipe between the adapter and the switch for improved performance, availability, and security. With support for FCoE, two vNICs can be configured as CNAs, which realizes more cost savings through convergence.
VMready software on the switch simplifies configuration and improves security in virtualized environments. VMready automatically detects virtual machine movement between physical servers and instantly reconfigures the network policies of each VM across VLANs to keep the network up and running without interrupting traffic or affecting performance. VMready works with all leading VM providers, such as VMware vSphere, Citrix Xen, and Microsoft Hyper-V.
- Layer 3 functionality
The G8264CS includes Layer 3 functionality, which provides security and performance benefits, because inter-VLAN traffic stays within the switch. This switch also provides the full range of Layer 3 protocols from static routes for technologies, such as Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) for enterprise customers.
- Seamless interoperability
The G8264CS switches perform seamlessly with other vendors' upstream switches.
- Fault tolerance
The G8264CS switches learn alternative routes automatically and perform faster convergence if there is a link, switch, or power failure. The switch uses proven technologies, such as L2 trunk failover, advanced VLAN-based failover, VRRP, and Hot Links.
- Multicast support
These switches support IGMP Snooping v1, v2, and v3 with 2K IGMP groups. They also support Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM), such as PIM Sparse Mode or PIM Dense Mode.
- Transparent networking capability
With a simple configuration change to easy connect mode, the RackSwitch G8264CS becomes a transparent network device that is invisible to the core, eliminates network administration concerns of Spanning Tree Protocol configuration/interoperability and VLAN assignments, and avoids any possible loops. By emulating a host NIC to the data center core, it accelerates the provisioning of VMs by eliminating the need to configure the typical access switch parameters.

Warranty and maintenance
The RackSwitch G8264CS comes with a 3-year Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) hardware limited warranty with 9x5 Next Business Day (NBD) Parts Delivered and includes a 3-year software license, which provides entitlement to upgrades over that period. The options that are installed in the switch assume the switch’s base warranty and any Lenovo warranty service upgrade for the switch. Lenovo also allows one no-charge support call within 90 days of purchase to get assistance and help resolve problems with the configuration of recently purchased Lenovo network switches.
Some regions might have different warranty terms and conditions than the standard warranty. This is due to local business practices or laws in the specific region. Local service teams can assist in explaining region-specific terms when needed. Examples of region-specific warranty terms are second or longer business day parts delivery or parts-only base warranty.
If warranty terms and conditions include onsite labor for repair or replacement of parts, Lenovo will dispatch a service technician to the customer site to perform the replacement. Onsite labor under base warranty is limited to labor for replacement of parts that have been determined to be field-replaceable units (FRUs). Parts that are determined to be customer-replaceable units (CRUs) do not include onsite labor under base warranty.
If warranty terms include parts-only base warranty, Lenovo is responsible for delivering only replacement parts that are under base warranty (including FRUs) that will be sent to a requested location for self-service. Parts-only service does not include a service technician being dispatched onsite. Parts must be changed at customer’s own cost and labor and defective parts must be returned following the instructions supplied with the spares parts.
Also available are Lenovo Services warranty maintenance upgrades and post-warranty maintenance agreements, with a well-defined scope of services, including service hours, response time, term of service, and service agreement terms and conditions.
Lenovo warranty service upgrade offerings are region-specific. Not all warranty service upgrades are available in every region. For information about Lenovo warranty service upgrade offerings that are available in your region, refer to the following resources:
- Service part numbers in Lenovo Data Center Solutions Configurator (DCSC):
