vNIC’s and vHBA’s

UCS is using Converged Networking. With a Cisco VIC( a CNA or Converged Network Adapter), you can create vNIC’s and vHBA’s. You can add a vNIC to your profiles for every requirement. If you need a vNIC that functions as an iSCSI Adapters, or a vNIC for a VMware vSwitch, just add one. With the right policies and settings UCS will configure the vNIC and switch port (on the FI’s) with optimal settings.
You don’t have to share a vNIC for different purposes. You can mix vHBA’s and vNIC’s together. And even with different MTU sizes. Also QoS is possible on the vNIC’s.
