Unified networking over 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) in the data center offers compelling benefits, including a simplified infrastructure, lower equipment and power costs, and the flexibility to meet the needs of the evolving, virtualized data center. In recent years, growth in Ethernet-based storage has surpassed that of storage-specific fabrics, driven in large part by the increase in server virtualization. The ubiquity of storage area network (SAN) access will be critical as the virtualization deployments continue to grow and new, on-demand data center models emerge.

With long histories in Ethernet networking and storage, Intel and NetApp are two leaders in the transition to 10GbE unified networking. This paper explores the many benefits of unified networking, the approaches to enabling it, and the pivotal roles Intel and NetApp are playing in helping to bring important, consolidation-driving technologies to enterprise data center customers.
