Extreme Networks Introduces Open Fabric Data Center Architecture


Extreme Networks last week announced the Extreme Networks Open Fabric data center solutions, a portfolio of data center switches that allow organizations to more cost-effectively build scalable, mobile and virtualized networks featuring high performance, low latency and energy efficiency.

Extreme Networks Open Fabric data center solutions leverage standards-based technologies preserving existing investments while bringing new innovations that drive cloud-scale networks.

The Extreme Networks Open Fabric data center solution leverages the ExtremeXOS operating system end-to-end and emphasizes wire-speed switching of Virtual Machines, intelligence to automate VM mobility through XNV, standards-based, non-blocking high density 10Gbs server connectivity and non-blocking high density 40Gbs fabric interconnect with multi-path forwarding that is also designed to evolve for 100GbE.

The Extreme Networks Open Fabric data center architecture incorporates standards-based OpenFlow technology to simplify network provisioning and supports Data Center Bridging (DCB) to provide consolidation of LAN and storage fabrics in the data center, including iSCSI and FCoE.
