We’re pleased to announce the first edition of our new 2017 Next Gen Data Center Networking Report!
Many of you (from our over 150,000 readers) have asked us to pull together a comprehensive look at next gen data center networking today. Our research team has responded with an ample view of the latest trends in data center networking, including the uptake of leaf-spine Clos architectures, the role of merchant silicon and white boxes, and software-defined networking (SDN). The report delves into the evolution of the network as inspired by the efforts of the web titans like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn and Microsoft, and the efforts of the Open Compute Project (OCP) and the project teams at the Linux Foundation.
The 2017 Next Gen Data Center Networking Report provides insights into market strategies and offerings designed to help architects and executives mitigate potential challenges in implementing next gen data center strategies. You’ll find analysis of industry trends and business drivers, as well as our take on the key requirements of what makes up a next gen data center networking solution. We also provide a sampling of popular networking vendor solutions on the market to demonstrate the state of innovation in the data center market.
Key topics and trends covered by the report include:
- Key business drivers for data center architecture and networks
- Migration from fat tree with L2 spanning-tree to leaf-spine Clos networks with L3 ECMP
- Disaggregation, merchant silicon and white box trends
- Insights into next gen data center networks at Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft Azure
- SDN and the data center network
- Role of Open Compute Project (OCP) and the Linux Foundation
- Non-traditional data centers driven by service provider initiatives (MEC and CORD)
