Modern network architectures for the data center are characterised by virtualisation, fabric switching and convergence strategies. Application delivery controllers ensure that the data center’s interfaces to the consumers and providers of the IT services are secure, available and high-performing.
Data Center Switching
The traditional 3-layer architecture model used in most data centers, with core, aggregation and access layers, is not entirely suitable for modern, increasingly virtualised data center environments and SDN-based networks.
Application Delivery Controller
Providing business-critical applications in a reliable, high-performance, secure way involves a wide range of technologies – load balancers, WAN optimisers, link managers, caching solutions, secure gateways and many more.
