The network connects all things digital. To succeed in the digital age, your network needs to evolve to help your business reach its full digital potential. We know that network migration initiatives are complex and demanding. They affect your customer and employee traffic and can significantly upset your business continuity. You need a smooth transition.
Data center networks have been rapidly evolving in recent years to address the changing nature of data center workloads. The modern data center workload is dominated by server-to-server traffic with intensive communication across hundreds and even thousands of servers.
Digital transformation is driving dramatic growth in unstructured data. And it's growing more rapidly than most IT leaders believe, propelled by big data, Internet of Things (IoT), systems telemetry, collaboration, and streaming video. Everyone is challenged to forecast and be prepared for this vast wave of data. And end-user expectations for speed and agility are greater than ever.
The success of your business depends on the availability and performance of your business applications. And the secure, flexible transport of application workloads across your data center is paramount to this success.
