Networking company Extreme Networks has come out with a plan to help enterprises migrate their data centres from a physical network, to a virtual network to location-independent cloud networks.
"Extreme Networks has developed a network infrastructure solution that accommodates the evolving technology landscape in the data centre," said Gordon Stitt, chairman of the board and co-founder of Extreme Networks. "Our data centre infrastructure solution allows users to migrate from a traditional or 'physical' infrastructure to a virtual one, without forcing a certain technology, or operating methodology on the user."
According to the networking company, its approach to the data centre is based on a virtualised network that brings insight at the virtual port level to the network and can dynamically track and manage VMs and apply policies as VMs move across the network.
The company also claims that it delivers a robust data centre infrastructure that is 40G and 100G ready and addresses future scalability requirements. Its versatile data centre network architecture is fortified with a high capacity, multiple terabit switching fabric in the core, 10 Gigabit Ethernet Top-of-Rack (ToR) and End-of-Row solutions, based on a non-blocking intelligent (L2/L3) architecture that can handle and distribute massive computing loads.
