|DESCRIPTION:||What Is the Cisco Data Center Network Architecture?|
A comprehensive architecture that enables IT executives to:
• Consolidate and virtualize computing, storage, and network resources
• Deliver secure and optimized employee, partner, and customer access to information and applications
• Protect and rapidly recover IT resources and applications
• Networked infrastructure: Gigabit/10Gigabit, InfiniBand, and storage switching and optical transport
• Interactive services: Storage Fabric Services, computer services, security services, and application optimization services
• Management: Fabric manager (element and network management) and Cisco VFrame (server and service provisioning)
Cisco Service-Oriented Network Architecture (SONA), the enterprise implementation of the Intelligent Information Network (IIN) technology vision. Cisco SONA emphasizes the value of the interactive services provided in the networked infrastructure, such as application optimization, security, and server and storage fabric switching, to enhance business applications.
