Datacentre Networking

Understand your network

Modern Networks 

Keeping pace with the increasing complexity of networks and datacentres is an ongoing challenge. Companies need to provide a consistent, reliable infrastructure that allows the business to be competitive, agile, and responsive. Yet, more devices are brought into the environment, requiring greater speed. Additional challenges such as constant application changes, hyper-convergence, mobility, the Internet of Things, and cloud make datacentre networking a key component of digital transformation. 

Network virtualization (NV)

NV solves a lot of the networking challenges in today’s datacentres, helping organisations centrally programme and provision the network, on-demand, without having to physically touch the underlying infrastructure. With NV, organisations can simplify how they roll out, scale and adjust workloads and resources to meet evolving computing needs. 

Software Defined Networking (SDN)

With virtualisation, companies can take advantage of the efficiencies and agility of software-based compute and storage resources. While networks have been moving towards greater virtualisation, it is only recently, with the true decoupling of the control and forwarding planes, as advocated by software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualisation (NFV), that network virtualisation has become more of a focus.
