Top 10 Data Center Networking Solution Providers 2016

Data Center Networking has come a long way from a mere buzz word to a support center of the IT architecture, from which all content is sourced or passed through. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, considering the performance, resiliency, and scalability. Data Center Optimization is the ability to use Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Networking Function Virtualization (NFV), Cloud, virtualization and enhancing networks to improve application performance by detecting and taking into account affinities, orchestrating workloads with networking configuration.

Another important aspect of the data center is designing a flexible architecture that has the ability to support new applications in a short time frame. Such a design requires solid initial planning and thoughtful consideration in the areas of port density, access layer uplink bandwidth, true server capacity, and oversubscription, to name a few.
