Energy-Efficient Unified Fabrics: Transform the Data Center Infrastructure With Cisco Nexus Series

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The Cisco Nexus family of products gives data center designers the opportunity to transform data center infrastructure from an Isolated Fabric Topology (IFT) to a Unified Fabric topology (UFT). IFTs rely on equipment that provides fixed-configuration access layer transport, such as devices that support Ethernet and Fibre Channel only. UFTs use standards-based IEEE Ethernet and IEEE Data Center Bridging technologies at 10 Gbps to provide a wire-speed lossless fabric to enable server I/O consolidation and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE).
