SFP+ Optic VS 10GBASE-T

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I want to create a new home network as fast, reliable and futureproof as possible and I can not decide which of the two interfaces should I use: SFP+ Optic or 10GBASE-T? The max length will be 20m. I don't have any issues with the cost (as long as the cost differences between them are reasonable). Which one should I choose? Or should I go for Infiniband? Any managed switches suggestions?
Are there any switches (preferably managed) that support them both (at least two ports of each of them)?

What are you even trying to do with your network? Also, what kind of budget lol

Most managed switches have some SFPs for uplinks as well as RJ45

10 Gbit switches are pretty pricey. I would just lay down Cat6a or similar for whenever the infrastructure devices prices come down. UTP is orders of magnitude more easy to work with than trying to splice your own fiber, not to mention cost of tools/cabling/similar.
Das Rig, Ja?

I will be running a dual Xeon 30 HDDs machine so I think that it will be quite useful a 10G network.
So you think I should go for the 10GBASE-T?
