Building scalable data center networks

May 3, 2019
Due to growing customer demands, the network infrastructure of modern data centers is transforming from a rigid and unwieldy model to a disaggregated, flexible and agile one.
Modern data centers require large, high-capacity networks that can scale, accomodate different traffic patterns, and are easy to automate at an affordable cost. Fixed form factor switches (FFF) and disaggregated network operating systems in a leaf/spin Clos architecture can build a scalable, robust and agile network in the most cost-effective way possible.
Download this paper and learn how to:
  • Design and build a flexible, scalable modern data center using the leaf/spine Clos architecture with FFF switches, like the original web-scale pioneers.
  • Build modern L3 fabrics and L2 overlay architectures.
  • Simplify and automate data center networks.
