Are You Ready for 10 Gigabit Ethernet?

Four Forces Driving 10 GbE Adoption

Server Virtualization
More virtual machines (VMs) are deployed than physical servers.
Hypervisors provide bandwidth control to manage traffic over shared 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) pipe.

Server Performance Increases
Ever-more powerful Intel® server processors support more VMs and drive ever-more demanding requirements on network I/O.
15 percent increase in throughput on Intel® Xeon® since 2006.

Unified Networking
10 GbE allows running all network storage traffic over an Ethernet pipe
Reduce network costs per rack by more than 50 percent using Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) on existing Ethernet fabric.
