Demartek Presents a Unified Data Center Network Infrastructure at the Storage Decisions Conferences in June 2009
14 April 2009
Dennis Martin, President of Demartek, will present Not "Just a Switch" Anymore -- Data Center Backbone Architectures at the Storage Decisions Conferences in Chicago and Toronto in June 2009. The Chicago conference will be held June 1-2, 2009. The Toronto conference will be held June 16, 2009.
The leading switch vendors have revealed their visions of a unified data center network infrastructure. It sounds good, but what are the ramifications for the storage networking infrastructures you have in place? This session will cover:
- The technologies that are available now—and what’s still needed
- Key protocols and standards that will make the unified data center work
- The advantages—and drawbacks—of having an integrated network
- How will currently installed storage networks be affected
In addition, Dennis will include some of the results from his unified network testing with Enhanced Ethernet in the Demartek lab.
