Data centers can realize benefits such as better ROI and better efficiency with this new approach. The company is also enhancing SDN or software defined networking with this initiative.
Traditionally, Ethernet switch vendors have kept their solutions under wraps and this means almost no flexibility to the clients. With the growth of SDN and open source, data center owners are looking for enhancing data center productivity and this may not always be found in proprietary software.
