Virtualized Multi-Tenant Cloud Data Center Architecture Overview

An architecture designed to meet the needs of service providers and enterprises in a fast-growing market.

Built around highly virtualized environments where information isolation within a shared resource environment, infrastructure scale, virtualization lifecycle management, performance, automation, and integration is all rolled up into an existing management and provisioning platform and providing:

  • The ability to efficiently integrate with virtualization
  • The scalability to meet “at-scale” cloud requirements
  • A highly automated and customizable environment providing interoperability and integration with the infrastructure required to deliver cloud-based services

From a networking perspective, the ability to provide high-performance 10GbE and 40GbE in an open, standards-based framework is essential for a move from a physical to a highly virtualized infrastructure and into the cloud via an open architecture – without forcing an operating methodology or requiring a forklift upgrade.
