Video: Data center network architecture and design strategies

For the first time in many years, networking professionals are considering new network architecture and design strategies for the data center LAN.

Data center network architecture must evolve in order to support heavily virtualized environments and private or hybrid cloud environments, which require non-blocked connectivity and sometimes unified storage and data center networks.
