In today's data centers, virtualization deployments have become a norm and the trend is growing rapidly with the availability of 10 Gigabit Ethernet servers at attractive price points. Increased adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet servers coupled with applications using higher bandwidth is accelerating the need for dense 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet switching. Moreover, data center architectures are evolving whereby customers are looking to build large-scale nonblocking fabrics to accommodate different applications, creating heavy east-west or north-south traffic patterns. Leaf and spine layer designs using high-density and low-latency switches lead to flatter network architectures, allowing connections scaling from hundreds to more than 10,000 servers with large bisectional bandwidth and helping ensure low-latency fabric with minimal hop count.
