As organizations move their datacenters to meet increasing business challenges, they need to evolve their infrastructure in a way that positions IT to create a dynamic datacenter. Recent IDC research shows that the datacenter has been a key area for investments in new technologies (including virtualization for servers, storage, and networks), infrastructure related investments needed support consolidation efforts, and foundational investments to support automation. The key requirement for IT today is to gain greater utilization from the IT assets it has already deployed as well as position the datacenter fro the future.
Innovation in the datacenter network is required to achieve these goals. In effect, organizations that strive to create a dynamic and agile datacenter can take steps to simplify their network architecture in order to transition to an energy-efficient, operationally efficient, secure, virtualized datacenter that can support the changing requirements of the businesses with agile services and applications.
This Technology Spotlight discusses the steps customers can follow as they evolve their datacenter network architecture, with virtualization at the core of this evolution. This paper also highlights the role that Cisco Systems' products can play in the virtualized and dynamic datacenter.
