A couple of months ago, we introduced the new Cisco MDS 9700 Series Multilayer Directors. The new Cisco MDS 9710 Director establishes a new benchmark for performance – delivering more than three times the bandwidth of any Director in the industry. Since the launch, several of our customers deployed MDS 9710 successfully and reaped the benefit from it.
In this blog, let me share with you on how LinkedIn used Cisco MDS to solve their storage growth needs. Since the company was founded, it has enjoyed steady growth in members and revenues. In fact, based on LinkedIn’s calculations, LinkedIn adds more than two new members per second. This means that the company’s storage needs and storage area network (SAN) are growing fast, and its SAN switches need to keep pace. With more than 259 million registered members, LinkedIn is connecting the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful.
