Building a Data Center Network for 10Gbe Servers
January 3rd, 2013 By: Bill Kleyman
The current data center infrastructure has evolved beyond simple server design and workload deployments. Now, cloud computing, software services, shared storage and virtualization seem to dominate many data center infrastructures. All of this was built around the need to create a more robust, scalable infrastructure capable of better supporting the end-user and the computing experience. With BYOD, distributed environments and more users working on a “data-on-demand” schedule – engineers are working hard to find ways to deliver all of this data, quickly.
Join Chuck Girt (OneCommunity), John Scheidemantel (NYSE Euronext), and Calvin Chai (Juniper Networks) as they discuss the importance of a diverse infrastructure and how to better support the core networking platform. In the Building a Data Center Network for 10Gbe Servers webinar, Juniper outlines how their environment is capable of not only scale, but advanced networking efficiencies.
The idea is simple, you can have the most advanced servers, a great storage backbone and top of the line chassis equipment – but without a good core network, all the user experience will be throttled. Administrators are able to utilize an advanced and powerful 10Gbe network backbone to deliver virtualized workloads and control a more user-dense environment. In the Building a Data Center Network for 10Gbe Servers webinar, Juniper outlines how to take an environment and make it scale. Having a powerful networking backbone not only increases resiliency, but creates an easier to manage environment. The underlying goal, as outlined by the webinar, is to take an old, Rigid IT environment and transform it into a flexible, virtualized infrastructure. Click here to access this webinar.
