Fabric Network

Posted in Uncategorized by ervin andriana taufik on July 16, 2012

Defining a Network Fabric

While there are many definitions floating around, a data center switching fabric ultimately provides:

  • High-speed, low-latency interconnectivity
  • Non-blocking/non-oversubscribed interconnectivity
  • Layer 2-type connectivity
  • Multiple active paths with fast failover
  • Mesh connectivity rather than a tree-type topology
  • Simple management, configuration and provisioning
