As organizations strive to get the most out of existing data center assets, and as virtualization is deployed throughout the data center, the network and the services associated with it grow increasingly important. This report from IDC provides an overview on how implementing next-generation networking equipment can facilitate a more dynamic data center and deliver reliability and security that will simplify the entire data center environment.

To optimize costs, IT must increase utilization of IT assets, maintain operational simplicity, and provide a solid business case and ROI for network investment.
