Source: Cisco Systems
Yahoo Japan Corporation has constantly expanded its data centers in order to provide better services, deal with increasing access, and improve service continuity through disaster recovery. The company has introduced various approaches, such as standardized configuration, into the new data center to facilitate floor-based expansion. The company selected Cisco Nexus 7000 Series that can support a maximum of 512 10Gb ports for each chassis, and enables Yahoo Japan Corporation to organize 250 racks of edge switches per floor into a single chassis. It can provide operational continuity during operating system upgrade and stability under high-load situations, and help ensure switching at failure. These features were already tested in the production environment and expected to be greatly helpful to increase availability of the new data center.
