In their battle against performance constraints, complexity and costs, enterprises are finding 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) to be a welcome upgrade.
According to a recent survey by IDG Research Services, the trend toward 10 Gigabit Ethernet deployment is well underway—and for good reason. Organizations are facing unprecedented increases in data volume, virtual machine sprawl is intensifying, and bandwidth just isn’t keeping up with faster servers as companies turn to next-generation data centers and private cloud networks.
The growing inability of many organizations to keep pace with the demands of the tech-fueled, data-driven evolution is leaving its mark. Simply put, data volumes continue to explode and the trend does not show any signs of slowing down. In fact, according to a recent IDG Research Services survey, 93 percent of organizations expect their bandwidth demand to grow over the next twelve months. At the same time, enterprises are fully embracing virtualization, which initially put a strain on servers, but is now exposing weaknesses within the network.
