The Adaptive Architecture for the Data Center Network
Source: Cisco Systems
Evolving business needs and increasing application complexity are placing mounting demands on the server environment in the data center. A single approach to server infrastructure is no longer appropriate and is being replaced with multiple server strategies, each designed to meet different functional and cost objectives. This change is, in turn, placing new demands on the data center network that links these servers together, because each server strategy has differing implications on the network design and operations. Cisco offers a complete portfolio of award-winning switches for the data center, so one can support multiple concurrent server strategies while still maintaining a consistent approach to the overall data center network architecture.
