Enterprise Data Center

 

Enterprise data center operators face a number of challenges as they try to build and maintain their business’s most important strategic asset. Orchestrating applications, traffic and virtual machines is becoming much more difficult. Managing an increasingly complicated network takes up time that could be better spent serving users and integrating new applications, and scaling to meet growing needs is expensive.

Extreme Networks addresses these challenges with our software defined data center architecture comprised of advanced hardware, software and partner ecosystem solutions:

Cloud/Service Provider

 

Building and maintaining cloud-scale or service provider data centers requires specialized tools and product capabilities. A flood of ever-increasing applications, users and devices need to be integrated and orchestrated as fast as possible. Integrating storage, compute and network resources with SDN while maintaining security and privacy is another major challenge. Data center interconnection and disaster recovery requirements only add another layer of complexity.
