Data Centers Consolidate on Ethernet

STERLING, Va. -- As the Data Center continues to evolve and mature, business-oriented goals are driving the adoption of Ethernet as the single network technology, according to a new Current Analysis Advisory Report, "One Love, One Data Center, One Network."

"For there to be truly agile, cost optimized, and efficient data centers, the network must be transitioned to a single technology," says the report's author, Steven Schuchart, Current Analysis Principal Analyst, Data Center. "That technology is Ethernet. There is significant opportunity to break the old networking paradigms and advocate one network technology for the data center."
