Improving Data Center Performance with 25/50GE


The first interoperability tests with 25/50/100GE technology are complete, and products are shipping. New 25/50/100GE fabrics will deliver higher bandwidth for improved application performance in the data center with reduced cost. These new fabrics will initially be attractive to large-scale data center operators looking to migrate to 100GE switching and 25/50GE server connectivity, and will require buyers to re-evaluate their purchasing decisions. This webinar explores options for 25/50/100GE architectures and their impact in the data center and provides recommendations for buyers of new 25/50/100GE products.
