Creating Effective Networks for the Data Center

Matt Baldassano Matt Baldassano January 3, 2013

There have been numerous developments with respect to technology that is enabling multi-mode fiber to remain the dominant media choice for data center networks. Developments in optical transceiver technology enable these technologies to remain a cost effective, low-power solution for data center operators.

During the 2012 Gartner Data Center Conference, I gave a presentation showcasing how technology, intelligence and energy can all work together in creating an effective 40/100G network for the data center.

My presentation provides insight on the value that intelligence infrastructures provide while assisting organizations in the challenges of managing multi-form factor connectors in their networks. I welcome you to watch the video included in this blog. Feel free to download the whitepaper written by my colleague Frank Yank, 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet: The Foundation of Virtualized Data Center and Campus Networks.
