Simplify, Simplify, Simplify
Evolution toward 10 GbE solutions offers new opportunities for data centers to simplify their networks by optimizing for virtualization,
taking a different approach to storage, decreasing cabling, and converging multiple network types into one unified Ethernet network.
One way 10 GbE solutions help simplify data center complexity is
by enabling you to consolidate ports. Consider that most virtualized
servers contain eight to ten GbE LAN ports and two dedicated SAN
ports, typically Fibre Channel. Virtualization demands connectivity
to every server in the data center, and as virtualization increases,
connection and cabling complexity can stretch your ability to provide
reliable service at an acceptable level.
With 10 GbE solutions, traffic from multiple GbE ports can be
consolidated into a pair of 10 GbE ports, lowering equipment
costs and reducing cabling while still meeting the needs of
virtualized servers and bandwidth-hungry applications.
