Building Scalable Data Center Networks
The network infrastructure of modern data centers is transforming from a monolithic, rigid, and unwieldy model to a disaggregated, flexible and agile one. To meet growing customer demands, pioneers in modern data centers had to build very large, high capacity networks that could scale, accommodate different traffic patterns, and were easy to manage and configure with automation tools.
This practice led to the rise of network "building blocks," fixed form factor (FFF) switches and disaggregated network operating systems (NOS).
