As the demand for bandwidth grows, so does the reach of networks. Users need to access data globally, from multiple locations around the world, quickly and transparently without breaking budgets. Data centers locked into servicing only local users unnecessarily constrain growth and expansion.
This document describes enterprise virtualization today and the anticipated uses of this technology, particularly leveraging the capabilities provided by widespread adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) as a single, converged network fabric.
This Technology Brief is divided into two parts. The first part discusses the evolution of Ethernet, and then focuses on 10 Gigabit Ethernet and related transceiver and cabling technologies. The second part examines BLADE’s RackSwitch product line, including 10 GbE applications within enterprise networks and data centers.
Server virtualization initiatives are reshaping data center traffic flows, increasing bandwidth densities at the server edge and pushing conventional data center networks to the brink. This white paper reviews the impact of server virtualization.
This white paper reviews the impact of server virtualization on the data center and describes a simpler way to build more secure and automated networks that fully meet the stringent performance, availability, and agility demands of data centers.
When data center technology such as servers or storage area networks are aligned with specific applications or organizational departments, the result is often inefficiency. Through data center convergence, IT resources can be managed more easily.

The bank wanted to modernize its global data center core and edge networks to move to the next stage of its private cloud journey. The bank has long recognized the advantages of server virtualization, and it wanted to move more aggressively to a software-defined data center. The bank was virtualizing all services, including compute, storage, and network, to gain greater business flexibility and deliver cost savings. But first, it needed an elastic, flexible, and production ready network to connect its data centers.
The bank wanted a dynamically scalable network to interconnect its data centers in Europe, Asia, and North America, so that it could move toward a fully automated, self provisioned cloud. The global network needed to deliver performance at scale for the company’s highly virtualized resources, while also supporting integration of legacy assets into its software-defined data centers.
