Italian ICT Company TSF adapted the Cisco Data Center 3.0 vision to create new, on-demand cloud services. In order to reach its business goals TSF decided that it could best achieve its goals by using Cisco Data Center 3.0 architectures and technologies. Cisco Data Center 3.0 provides a roadmap for transforming infrastructure through the data center in three key phases - consolidation, virtualization, and automation. TSF had already embraced Cisco's data center vision three years before, when it embarked on an extensive process of server consolidation followed by an equally large project to unify and consolidate its storage, using a Cisco Storage Area Network (SAN) solution. TSF decided to base the architecture of its new network, from the core to the access layer, on the Cisco Nexus family of data center solutions, including Cisco Nexus 7010 switches, Cisco Nexus 5000 switches with Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), the Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders, and Cisco Nexus 1000V virtual switches with VMware vSphere integration. In the network core, Cisco Nexus 7010 ultra-fast switches and Cisco MDS 9000 SAN switches provide 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 8 Gigabit fiber channel connectivity to the access layer. Building a completely different type of data center has enabled TSF to achieve its objective of changing its business model and new portfolio based on selling Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
