Plexxi Aims to Bring Network Control, Visibility to Hyperconverged Systems
#Plexxi is upgrading its network fabric to give organizations that are looking to embrace converged infrastructures better control and visibility into their networks. Traditional data center featured physically separated networks for different workloads like virtualization, big data analytics and storage, which are placed in different compute hardware, according to Plexxi officials. It’s a system that’s worked well until now, they said. Organizations that are looking to bring simplicity and reduced operating and capital costs to increasingly complex data and expensive centers are beginning to turn to converged and hyperconverged infrastructures, where compute, storage and networking resources are brought together into tightly integrated appliances.
