What is the alternative…? VM Evolution: Scale & Flexibility Members of the same VM domain must remain in the same subnet Physical Servers Virtual Servers APPs I-P Per Rack APPs A-H Per Rack APP A APP B Rack 1 Rack 2 Rack 1 While application scale & server utilization is poor, network complexity is simple Server virtualization brings scale and efficiency to applications. VMs become essentially “jailed” and network flexibility is reduced.
VSP7000 Mobility & Flexibility Jailbreak! Put your VMs where you need them. • Fabric Connect provides the VMs & therefore, the applications a “get out of jail free” card. • No longer bound by physical & logical constraints—VMs can be moved anywhere. • This creates the flexibility to improve availability, simplify maintenance and enhance application expansion Row A Row B Row C Rack 1 Rack 2 Rack 3 Rack 4
