Data Centers and the Cloud Simplifying Network Infrastructure

Clouds are all about misdirection and virtualization. But what about the network that's at the core of both your cloud and data center? With physical resources hidden from applications and each other, how do networks find and access the elements – both virtual and physical – that make up today's network – and how can you ease the management burden that LAN, WAN and SAN all put on network administration? One way that's rapidly gaining traction is the use of Ethernet Fabrics, a new category of networks that simplify network architectures in the datacenter, in the cloud and between the two. In this highly informative video segment, Ziff Davis Enterprise Market Expert Michael Krieger, sits down with Brocade CTO Dave Stevens to figure out what you need to get started with Ethernet Fabrics within your organization.
