Data Center Design - IP Network Infrastructure
Source: Cisco Systems
The Cisco Data Center 3.0 architecture is built on the concept of investment protection, allowing incremental integration of new technologies and platforms into the existing infrastructure to meet changing business needs. Specific business requirements in the enterprise data center can dictate highly customized topologies, but often many of the same fundamental design principles and technologies can be used to construct them. This paper is targeted at providing a reference topology relevant to today's common enterprise data center environment that has been extended to reflect some of the new products and features that are available to the network designer.
