Executive Summary

Data centers today are larger, faster and more complex than ever. New technologies such as virtualization, Fibre Channel over Ethernet and 40/100 gigabit Ethernet aim to help organizations move multiple traffic types - data, storage, video, and voice - onto a single, converged core. Validation and performance assessment of these new technologies are vital first steps in implementing these new technologies. In a data center context, that means testing each of these technologies not just by itself but also in concert with many other data center components old and new. This white paper aims to help network professionals understand the issues involved in data center validation and performance benchmarking.
