Modern data center networking is becoming increasingly complex. While the proliferation of new technologies such as virtualization, cloud computing, and network convergence enable higher workloads to be placed on the network they also add another level of complexity. The movement toward virtualization is forcing enterprises to take restructure their data center architecture to ensure they have the automation, visibility, and security controls in place to meet the needs of today's demanding business applications.

Organizations today face ever-increasing requirements for uptime, application flexibility in rapid application provisioning and increasing data mobility network traffic. Business agility demands increased network I/O uptime, which in turn means constant networking resiliency, and a demand for zero downtime and convergence. Unfortunately, most current network technologies were not developed with the needs of virtualization and cloud computing in mind, as a result network can become a bottleneck for cloud and virtualization deployments.

To cater to these network challenges, organizations are attempting to create a dynamic data center enabled by virtualization. They are moving toward an architecture where server, storage, and network assets are tightly aligned with converged infrastructures. These organizations are aiming for a future where they can deploy and effectively use hundreds and thousands of server applications in a virtual environment. 

The IT resources such as storage, server, and network infrastructure resources are treated as pools to be assigned as needed by business services. The goal behind this is to create a pool of network entities that can be allocated and de-allocated on-demand, with the push of a button. This model will require a new layer of abstraction and resource management. To address the high performance and density demands of businesses, virtualized data center will require migration from 1GbE to 10GbE switches. The 10GbE is the foundation of virtualized data centers.

The major industry players in the data center networking market such as Cisco, Juniper Networks, Brocade, HP, Alcatel-Lucent, Arista Networks, Extreme Networks, and others are finding a huge potential in the market in near future.
