Cisco Data Center Ethernet: Network Architecture for Data Center 3.0 - At-A-Glance
Source: Cisco Systems
Cisco Data Center Ethernet is an architecture based on a collection of open-standard Ethernet extensions to improve and expand Ethernet networking and management capabilities in the data center. It helps ensure delivery over lossless fabrics, I/O consolidation onto a unified fabric, and increased bisectional bandwidth with multipathing at Layer 2. Each element of the Cisco Data Center Ethernet architecture enriches Cisco Data Center 3.0 and creates a robust Ethernet infrastructure to meet data center requirements now and in the future.
