Why Physical Networks Don't Cut It for the Private Cloud

Organizations are adopting private clouds with great gusto, however, building a private cloud means offering a whole new model for service delivery from the data center based on virtualization, orchestration, multi-tenancy, provisioning, etc. This expert tip discusses why physical networks don’t cut it for the cloud, addressing multi-tenancy in the private cloud and the cloud VLAN challenge.

  • Cloud-native routing: Support changing digital demands

    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.

  • Composable fabric: Network fabric for a composable infrastructure

    In today’s digital world, change is constant and driven by some very traditional tenets—including the need for faster, more reliable, less expensive, and easier-to-use data center infrastructure and applications.

    As a result, many enterprise data centers are embracing the concept and practice of infrastructure composability. But with composable infrastructure comes the demand for a composable network fabric to support the change in workload traffic.

    Learn how you can get started with composable infrastructure in this white paper, which covers:

    • The evolution of data center infrastructure and cloud adoption
    • Fundamental networking role of composable fabric
    • Operational principles of composable fabric
