Data centers are evolving, requiring infrastructure that can support dynamic growth in VMs, distributed applications, and big data, as well as cloud-based computing—without compromising performance. e. IT service delivery and data center operators need networks that offer high performance and are operationally efficient, automated, and—most importantly—elastic. The ideal network must be easy to manage and must scale out to meet future business demand. Scale-out is an architectural trend that is becoming common in all aspects of data center design, due to the very tangible benefits of a scale-out model.

The Extreme VCS Fabric was designed to address these requirements – to facilitate and optimize scale-out architectures. With zero-touch capabilities, scale-out makes it simple to add, move, or remove network resources without changing configurations to existing networks.

  • It enables network expansion over time as a business grows
  • The architecture delivers resilient network fabrics, eliminating “single point of failure” and potential downtime.
  • It delivers compelling economic benefits – lowering up-front cost with high-density fixed switches and lowering TCO by reducing power, cooling, and data center space.
