The Unified Fabric Payoff
So, as I have mentioned before and chatted about with Sidney, we have the Nexus 5000 and unified fabric in production in our Mountain View data center. We are running the News@Cisco website over it as well as some back-office data base apps right now.So what have we learned? To net it out:
- Reduced cable count per rack from 72 to 18
- Reduced power consumption by 30%
- Extended useful life of data center by 12-18 months
You can watch the video of Mike Norman, Director of DC Design, dig into some of the details.
