FS 25G Portfolio for Data Center 25G/100G Leaf-Spine Network

  FS 25G Portfolio for Data Center 25G/100G Leaf-Spine Network 25G Ethernet is a standard for Ethernet connectivity, which is developed by IEEE 802.3 Task Force P802.3by. Looking back at the evolution of Ethernet standard, 40G and 100G standards have long been active in the market since 2010, while 25G standard was not introduced until 2016. It seems that 25G standard is a step backward, as 40G and 100G already exist. But in fact, the ...

Data Center Switch Wiki, Usage and Buying Tips

The data center switch is emerging as a new class of switch since data center networking infrastructures become more disaggregated. Unlike the network switch for traditional three-tier hierarchical networks, data center class switches are designed to support data and storage for mission critical applications. Now with various data center switches and vendors in the market, buying a good one can be a difficult task. Here will help you learn what a data center switch is, when to use data center sw...

Using 10GbE Leaf Switch to Build Data Center Architecture

As business needs have evolved, so has data center networking architecture. As servers multiply and switching tiers stretch in data centers, the leaf switch or leaf-spine architecture emerges as a rising star to gradually replace the traditional three-tier architectures. FS 10GbE data center leaf switch is built on a network fabric that combines time-tested protocols with new innovations to create a highly flexible, scalable, and resilient architectures. This post takes a look at why it makes se...

10G ToR/Leaf Ethernet Switch: What Is the Right Choice?

Networking has undergone tremendous changes in the last few decades. For now, 40Gb switch is ramping up and 10Gb Ethernet switch has become ubiquitous in data center application, working as Top-of-Rack (ToR) switches at the edge of the network or leaf switches in more advanced spine-leaf architecture. On the other hand, the explosive growth in online applications, cloud services and virtualization also fuels the need for high-speed switching. As there may exist a dazzling array of 10 gigabit swi...

FS 10Gbase-T Switch: Breaks the Price Barrier for 10G Network

Bandwidth intensive applications are further pushing the threshold on the need for higher performance, making 10G Ethernet a imperative for inter-switch and server-to-switch links. However, a glaring problem facing network managers is the high costs associated with 10G optical cabling, which has delayed widespread adoption of 10G Ethernet. Fortunately, 10GBase-T switch overcomes these cost barriers, ushering in an affordable migration to 10Gb copper switch throughout the data center. Recently, F...

How to Use 10GBASE-T Switch to Build Spine-Leaf Network

Since the standard for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (IEEE802.3ae) has been ratified in 2002, 10GbE deployments have grown rapidly year by year. And it is now mainly used to interconnect servers and routers in data center, especially in the Spine-Leaf network. Previously, IT managers often use 10GbE switch as the leaf switch, which provides high performance but cost a lot. Nowadays, as the price and power consumption of 10GBASE-T technology continue to drop, 10G copper switches are more popular in the Spi...

Popular ToR and ToR Switch in Data Center Architectures

Top of rack (ToR) is one common architecture of switch-to-server connections. According to a survey result in 2015, ToR was the most popularly used architecture both in colocation data centers and enterprise data centers. Seen from current trend, it will be widely deployed in the present and in the future as well. ToR switch therefore become more popular than before. “But, wait, what does a ToR look like? Is a ToR switch placed at the top of the rack?” Thanks for your questions. A ToR swit...

What Is Leaf-Spine Architecture and How to Design It

As virtualization becomes popular in the data center, a shift in the traditional three-tier networking model is taking place as well. A new networking architecture, leaf-spine, is gradually becomes the mainstream in today’s data center network deployment. It overcomes some of the limitations of traditional three-tier architecture, and also creates a fast, predictable, scalable, and efficient communication architecture for data center switch. Why Three-Tier Architecture Is Out of Fashion? A t...
