New
Delhi,
India :
The adoption of virtualization and outsourcing of infrastructure to managed
hosting

and cloud
providers is driving demand for high performance and increased scale
in the data center network. Extreme Networks has come up with the
data center products to enable the migration to virtualized data
centers and new infrastructure solutions that feature scalability and
simplicity.

Hosting
companies and enterprises alike are scaling their data centers to
realize the benefits of a virtualized infrastructure and Cloud-based
applications and systems. This new architecture enables resources to
be dynamically managed and deployed and therefore delivers
organizational flexibility and scale. The physical network —
providing essential interconnect and backbone within and between data
centers globally- is the foundation for the new virtualized
architecture and topologies. It is therefore essential that the
network technology and systems be highly scalable, deliver powerful
performance, capacity and capabilities to support large data center
implementations. Whether these deployments are based upon Layer 2 or
Layer 3 designs, the network must support a rapidly expanding number
of virtual machines and a very large numbers of users within a
limited power and physical footprint.

“Asmanaged
hosting

and Cloud
environments continue to grow rapidly, both Layer 2 and Layer 3
scalability becomes a major issue in the network,” said Jon Oltsik,
principal network analyst for the Enterprise Strategy Group.

The
BlackDiamond 8900-xl modules and Summit X480 stackable switches offer data
center solutions

that allow for a variety of network architectures and topologies to
be deployed by managed hosting companies and enterprises. “With
this announcement, Extreme Networks introduces both Layer 2 and Layer
3 scale across its data center product family of switches, and this
is essential to scaling the network to enable these kinds of
environments,” continued Jon Oltsik.

The
BlackDiamond 8900-xl modules include Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet
data center solutions that more than double the Layer 2 and Layer 3
table size previously supported and deliver a high speed switching
capacity of 128 Gigabits per line card. Additionally, the
BlackDiamond 8900-xl modules increase port density and scale,
allowing the largest data centers to minimize network tiers while
supporting increasing numbers of virtual machines. The
BlackDiamond 8900-xl modules are available as upgrades to the
BlackDiamond 8800 series switch family, allowing organizations to
grow at their own pace while avoiding a forklift upgrade.

Extreme
Networks Summit X480 fixed configuration 48 port 10/100/1000 switch
provides data center class functionality with industry leading Layer
2/3 scalability, front-to-back airflow and dual internal hot
swappable power supplies and fans. Taking advantage of the optional
VIM2 slot, which is 40 Gigabit Ethernet ready, the Summit X480
supports a four port 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink module or a stacking
support module which provides 40Gbps or 128Gbps throughput.

The
Summit X480 serves as a high performance data center edge solution
with robust stacking features to enable highly scalable “virtual
chassis” configurations for the data center. Virtual chassis
functionality allows the data
center

to control 1.8 terabit of switching capacity as a single managed
device.
