Mumbai: Cisco, the $40-billion global networking major, on Wednesday announced the launch of fabric-based computing approach which would address data center market in India.
Fabric-based computing helps enable a wire once deployment model where chaging configurations no longer mean installing new components or re-cabling existing ones. It helps to reduce cost by eliminating the need for a parallel set of components to support multiple data transmission protocols.
“At Cisco, we aim to bring together network, compute and virtualisation technologies into one unified system. We are confident of revolutionising datacenter management by offering flexibility and taking advantage of the role that the network plays in addressing key aspects such as security, scalability and interoperability,” Cisco India’s senior vice-president, Pramodh Menon, told reporters here.
