Case Study: Reducing Cabling Costs through Data Center Consolidation
Although server virtualization can address power and cooling issues and help to combat sprawl, it can also take a toll on network performance. This case study highlights the benefits of 10 Gigabit Ethernet and explains how one company realized them without having to construct a new data center.
Learn about the architecture they implemented and the results they achieved, including:
- Consolidated 80 servers into 40, with 20 virtual machines
- Consolidated multiple storage area networks into one
- Reduced cabling costs by 30-60%
