Cloud Computing

The cloud computing is a complicated problem in both the physical and virtual infrastructures. Emerging converged network and virtual I/O technologies will have distinct, but overlapping effects on data center infrastructure design. As the number of server deployments with virtualized I/O continues to increase, the ability to converge physical network architectures should interact seamlessly with virtualized I/O. ITAG expects that these two seemingly disparate technologies are going to become more and more intertwined as data center architectures move forward. The goal of converged networks is to simplify the physical infrastructure through server I/O consolidation. By implementing converged fabrics at the server-to-network edge first, customers gain benefits from reducing the physical number of cables, adapters, and switches at the edge where there is the most traffic congestion and the most associated network equipment requirements and costs.
