Fabric Interconnect (FI) is the core component of a UCS solution, providing
network, storage, and unified management capabilities to servers.
Interconnects are typically configured as highly available cluster pairs in
production environments and provide active-active data traffic.
A single FI-based design is also possible for
proof of concept (POC) but not recommended for a production environment.
