Key features
The RackSwitch G8332 enables customers to easily build an end-to-end, flat two-tier network that is based
on industry standards by using Lenovo RackSwitch switches and Lenovo System x® and ThinkServer®
servers.
For example, the RackSwitch G8332 is an ideal tier two switch to use when several RackSwitch switches
are connected, such as the RackSwitch G8264 or RackSwitch G8264CS, or embedded Ethernet offerings
for Flex System™ (SI4093, EN4093R, or CN4093) with 40 Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports at the access layer.
Other customers prefer the RackSwitch G8332 for the investment protection. These customers can use this
switch with their 10 Gigabit Ethernet environments today, but also use it in the future as they move to 40
Gigabit Ethernet.
The RackSwitch G8332 is considered particularly suited for the following environments:
Customers who are deploying 10 GbE on servers or blade chassis and require 40 GbE upstream
aggregation to build a POD or cluster:
Flex System embedded switches: SI4093, EN4093R, and CN4093
Also ideal for second tier networking when used with RackSwitch G8264 or G8264CS
Customers who are deploying 40 GbE server connectivity
Customers who want to converge their SAN and LAN on to one network via NAS or iSCSI
Customers looking for ways to reduce I/O cost (CAPEX); adapters, cables, transceivers, and
upstream network
Customers looking to reduce complexity (OPEX); less to manage and lower energy cost
Applications demanding better performance and lower latency
Customers who want investment protection; 40 Gb Ethernet, Cloud and SDN
The RackSwitch G8332 offers the following features and benefits:
High performance
This 40 Gigabit Ethernet low latency switch with 2.56 Tbps throughput provides the best
combination of low latency, non-blocking switching, and ease of management. The RackSwitch
G8332 is also a single ASIC design, which promises consistent lower port-to-port latency.
Lower power and better cooling
The RackSwitch G8332 uses as little as 270 W of power, and the front-to-rear or rear-to-front
cooling design reduces data center air conditioning costs by having airflow match the servers in the
rack. In addition, variable speed fans help automatically reduce power consumption.
High availability
The RackSwitch G8332 comes standard with hot-swap redundant power supplies and fans, which
makes the switch highly reliable and easy to service if there is a failure.
VM-aware networking
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 each VM’s network policies across VLANs to keep the network running
without interrupting traffic or affecting performance. VMready works with all leading VM providers,
such as VMware, Citrix, Xen, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Red Hat KVM.
Layer 3 functionality
The switch includes Layer 3 functionality, which provides security and performance benefits, as
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 G8332 switch interoperates seamlessly with other vendors' upstream switches.
Fault tolerance
The G8332 switch learns alternative routes automatically and performs faster convergence if there is
a link, switch, or power failure. The RackSwitch G8332 uses technologies, such as L2 trunk failover,
advanced VLAN-based failover, VRRP, and Hot Links.
OpenFlow enabled
The RackSwitch G8332 offers the benefits of OpenFlow. OpenFlow is an open application
programming interface (API) with which the network administrator easily configures and manages
virtual networks that control traffic on a “per-flow” basis. It also creates multiple independent virtual
networks and related policies without dealing with the complexities of the underlying physical
network and protocols.
Multicast
Multicast supports IGMP Snooping v1, v2, and v3 with 3K IGMP groups, and Protocol Independent
Multicast, such as PIM Sparse Mode or PIM Dense Mode.
Management
Network Address Translation (NAT) allows a single device, such as a router, to act as an agent
between the Internet (or "public network") and a local (or "private") network. Therefore, only a single,
unique IP address is required to represent an entire group of local IP addresses to the external
network. In addition to reducing the number of public IP addresses that are required, NAT provides
security by acting as a firewall between internal and external networks.
Standards
The RackSwitch G8332 supports the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol standard, which helps
improve synchronization of the network while also improving performance, availability, and flexibility.

team of finance professionals operates in a work culture that emphasizes the importance of providing
outstanding customer service. Our systems, processes and flexible policies support our goal of providing
customers with a positive experience.
We finance your entire solution. Unlike others, we allow you to bundle everything you need from hardware
and software to service contracts, installation costs, training fees, and sales tax. If you decide weeks or
months later to add to your solution, we can consolidate everything into a single invoice.
Our Premier Client services provide large accounts with special handling services to ensure these complex
transactions are serviced properly. As a premier client, you have a dedicated finance specialist who
manages your account through its life, from first invoice through asset return or purchase. This specialist
develops an in-depth understanding of your invoice and payment requirements. For you, this dedication
provides a high-quality, easy, and positive financing experience.
For your region specific offers please ask your Lenovo sales representative or your technology provider
about the use of Lenovo Financial Services. For more information, see the following Lenovo website:
