When Enterprise and Service Providers are looking at building Software-Driven Data Centers (SDDC) and Software-Driven Services, many times these applications and networks are designed, built, deployed and managed as separate, discrete entities.
The result is a lack of flexibility. All too often the data center network cannot easily scale to accommodate growth, cannot handle new types of traffic and workloads, cannot take advantage of cloud automation and orchestration opportunities, and cannot move large volumes of data.
This white paper takes a close look at the importance of moving to an agile, high-performance, next-generation data center network with three key areas that need to be addressed in order to do so: The Data Center Interconnect, Cloud Connectivity, and Building Cloud-Aware Networks.
