Inside IT: Preparing Intel’s Data Center Network Architecture for 100GbE
IT Best Practices: Episode 79 – The data center has evolved at an astonishing rate in recent years. Developments like widespread server virtualization, new applications with great performance requirements, and a forty percent annual growth in internet connection requirements pushed Intel IT to reassess its entire network architecture. One person doing that reassessment is Sanjay Rungta. He’s a Senior Principal Engineer in Intel’s Information Technology Group. In this podcast Rungta talks about how that increased demand for bandwidth meant it was time for a change. He outlines Intel’s strategic decision to upgrade the network fabric, as the company moves from one gigabit ethernet to, eventually, 100 gigabit ethernet infrastructure.
