Fabric networking: Data center and campus use cases

Although computing technologies have matched the needs of modern organizations, networking technology has not progressed at the same pace. Many organizations still use a legacy network infrastructure that is inadequate for today’s ever-changing business.

However, fabric networking can help to address the need for a network that adapts and changes on demand.

In this e-book, learn everything you need to know about fabric networking including:

  • The different types of fabric networks
  • The benefits of fabric networking
  • The data center and campus use cases for fabric networking
  • And more

These are also closely related to: "Network Evolution E-Zine: Building the infrastructure to enable the changing face of IT"

  • Rethink routing: Taking a cloud native approach

    Network operators such as service providers, wireless carriers, content delivery networks, cloud providers, metro Ethernet, and data centers are all facing major challenges.

    Traffic volume continues to increase as more bandwidth intensive applications dominate, requiring new investment in network infrastructure.

    Learn about a new approach to handling these changing demands with Volta Networks in this white paper.

  • Software-Defined Networking Strategies for Campus WANs

    Speed is the name of the game when it comes to your software-defined network (SDN) strategy. Unfortunately, when leveraging OpenFlow, using the wrong switch can be detrimental to speeds and cause issues when it comes to determining actual speeds throughout the network.

    In this E-Guide from SearchNetworking.com, explore the issues associated with troubled OpenFlow switches, which vendors carry them, and details about an SDN strategy that will not cause the issues that these other switches do.

    In addition, discover details about a product coming out next year that will help you manage your campus network as one giant switch stack.
