Network interfaces

HPE OmniStack hosts have physical 10 GbE and 1 GbE network interfaces. HPE OmniStack hosts use virtual networks to handle different network traffic. You can configure the network traffic to travel over both the 10 GbE and 1 GbE interfaces. For example, you can put the Management network on the 1 GbE interfaces and the Federation and Storage networks on the 10 GbE interfaces. You can also put all three networks on the 10 GbE interfaces.
