Cisco’s High Performance Fabric Technology For Physical, Virtual And Cloud-Based Environments
Zhang Cheng, Senior Manager of Information Systems at Baidu states, “The Cisco Nexus 7000 and the next generation F2-series line-rate 10GE I/O modules and Fabric2 modules offer unmatched high performance, high density and low power draw, ensuring Baidu can continue to scale and serve our rapidly growing customer base”.
Shashi Kiran, Director of Marketing Management at Cisco says their customers ask them to drive agility, efficiency and simplicity so they have taken an approach which resulted in a holistic fabric based approach that brings together the network, compute, storage and application elements to form a high performance infrastructure which is suitable for physical, virtual and cloud based environments. Let us see how this high performance fabric delivers revolutionary scale in a secure and evolutionary manner and how you can make the most out from deploying this fabric technology.
Cisco organized a data center broadcast event on the 25th October 2011 to discuss why they should be your chosen business partner for data center and cloud environment.
Since the customers have grown from 5K in 2009 to 19K+ in 2011 for NX-OS, the high performance Cisco’s infrastructure includes Nexus 7000 Series Switches to bring NX-OS feature set with high-density 10, 240 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet for the data center.Cisco FabricPath enhances Layer 2 with Layer 3 for Simplicity, Flexibility, Availability and Higher Bandwidth at a low cost. The architecture is designed for general purposes, cloud and service providers, Web 2.0 and Big Data and High Frequency Trading and High Performance Computing and to be open, integrated, flexible, scalable, resilient and secure.
Cisco’s Fabric Evolution has taken the technology to 2nd generation with its multi-dimensional fabric scale extending to geographical span between the DCs introducing F2-Series Line Card and Fabric 2 with the highest 10GbE density in modular switching from 1st generation’s system scale within DCs.
The reduction of cost in installation, maintenance and support, provisioning, enabling capturing of new processes within the network operations automation services and coordinating change management across IT organizations and Line Of Business support within the data center optimization services improve the operational efficiency of the Cisco’s Fabric technology. Hence, Cisco leads the competitors for its innovation in delivering industry-leading data center fabric for physical, virtual and cloud-based environments and customers’ top data center priorities such as 10GbE density in modular switching, fabric computing and secure cloud deployments.
