The prospect of adding another zero to the end of your top network speeds is an exciting venture that results in immediately noticeable performance improvement. And with the massive increase in the amount of data servers need to process, 100G is going to be a necessity for many organizations, very soon.
However, increasing network speed is about more than pushing more bits across a wire. Faster networks enable you to gain more from our physical rack space. You need fewer servers, fewer network connections and fewer switches. A faster network enables you to pack more computing into the same space.
Whether you plan to do a forklift upgrade to 100G or intend to replace one switch at a time, there are some key things you need to know to avoid getting locked into one switch vendor or losing backward compatibility with your existing equipment. In this paper, we give you five best practices for making a seamless transition to 100G.
