Executive Summary

Today's data centers are being transformed as the most recent server technologies are deployed in them. Multisocket servers with multicore processors deliver immense amounts of computing power in rack-mount servers and blade systems. This vast computing power has stimulated deployment of virtualization software that can more effectively put today's server capacity to use. The raw computing power of today's servers, combined with the higher utilization enabled by virtualization technology, places greater demands on IP networks than ever before. The alignment of these two trends is encouraging the rapid adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Today, IT departments deploy 10 Gigabit Ethernet through the use of third-party adapter cards installed in server expansion slots.
