SCCUG APR 2015: DATA CENTER
The pace of change within the data center continues to challenge the networks that support the application. Some key factors that have driven this change are the migration from physical hosts to virtual hosts, the continued growth of distributed computing and the push for automation of the infrastructure. This evolution has driven a noticeable change in the traffic patterns of the data center. 76% of traffic within the DC is now East-West (Server to Server). This is a drastic shift from the North-South (Client-Server) traffic from just a decade ago.
In order to meet these new demands of the network, we need to look at new architectures. In this session, we will discuss Fabric Based Network topologies and cover benefits and gotchas as well as the the different protocols like FabricPath, VXLAN, and ACI.
