As enterprises consolidate applications and implement cloud-based options to enhance flexibility and achieve significant ROI, server virtualization is becoming a common key initiative. This process is consistently elevating the cable’s importance. If a link to a physical server does not deliver the required performance in terms of latency, frame losses, and data throughput, this factor also affects access to all the other virtual machines running on the server.
Learn about the impact of your network infrastructure
Data center network cabling accounts for only 2 to 4% of all investments in data center projects. However, it is of crucial importance for the network performance. Knowing about the impact of the infrastructure is therefore essential to fully leverage on your virtualization strategy.
