Cloud Data Center Solutions

With east-west traffic growing, operators need low-latency, optimized traffic flows to increase network performance. In a spine-and-leaf topology, every leaf switch is connected to the spine switches in a mesh topology. The spine switches are the backbone of the network and are responsible for interconnecting all leaf switches. Packets are allocated randomly in the entire network, so traffic is evenly distributed among the top-of-rack switches with redundancy.

In addition, a spine-leaf architecture provides better scalability for operators to add additional switches easily. It increases the total bandwidth, but also reduces the OPEX of network expansion by optimizing the process of scaling the network.

Edgecore offers cutting-edge solutions, including choices of switch hardware and operating system SONiC to fully support spine-leaf architecture – from 1G management switching up and 10G/ 25G/100G/400G/800G leaf-and-spine options.

  • Edgecore cloud data center solutions leverage an SDN fabric, which is easy to set up and provision, so the network has the ability to scale as a business expands. Centralized management eliminates box-by-box network management, providing fast, scalable,and flexible designs that meet customer needs as a business grows.

  • Edgecore cloud data center solutions leverage SDN concepts, provides the high-convergence time and flexibility of effective network routing management, enabling a speedy delivery to students. It also reduces the operating complexity of IT staff by allowing them to centrally manage and monitor the entire campus network. An open cloud data center builds a scalable and economical solution that addresses current and future needs of the campus network structure, providing students with an uninterrupted learning experience.

  • Edgecore cloud data center solutions reduce network maintenance costs while ensuring the network structure is ready for nextgeneration technologies, such as software-defined networks (SDNs). Newly deployed data centers are fully backward compatible with remaining legacy networking infrastructure, bringing redundancy, high capacity, and low latency.

  • Edgecore cloud data center solutions support enterprise infrastructure for hyperscale networks with flexible deployment and automation capabilities, which maximizes operation efficiency and meets scalability and growing requirements. Enterprises are able to configure all switches at the same time, and all devices are exactly the same number of segments away from each other, providing a predictable and consistent amount of latency. When adding a new rack with TOR switches there is no need to check/upgrade centralized firewalls and load balancers.
