The data center serves as the backbone of the corporate network, connecting together servers, applications and
storage across one infrastructure. Cloud computing and virtualization technologies are forcing enterprises to
rethink their data center design to ensure the performance and efficiency of computing and storage resources in
the face of increasing application demands.
To meet these challenges, enterprises require networking solutions that go beyond basic high speed connectivity.
The network must be interoperable, scalable and optimized to meet the automation and visibility requirements of a
highly dynamic data center.
