Data Center Networking
Data-intensive applications such as Big Data, cloud computing, video streaming services and mobile broadband internet connectivity continue to grow at an accelerating rate. The ever-expanding data volumes pose many technical challenges on data centers. Multiple terabits of data travel to and from the data center each second. Moving such massive data around the data center requires a robust infrastructure that is capable of handling high bandwidth data delivery to and from storage endpoints, servers, top-of-rack (TOR) switches and core switches.
Networking architectures must evolve to support new requirements for higher bandwidth, lower latency and overall — agility.
Broadcom SAS and SATA host bus adapters provide optimal connectivity, scalability, performance and manageability for the DAS architectures that are central to hyperscale data center storage infrastructures.
Broadcom provides SAS and MegaRAID controller card solutions for OpenStack and other cloud computing environments to accelerate deployments and reduce costs.
Open Compute enables highly efficient server, storage and data centers for scalable computing.
Hyperscale data centers scale to thousands of servers with a focus on reducing TCO. Broadcom solutions help reduce the cost and complexity of deployments.
ExpressFabric technology is designed to replace the “bridging” and switching devices that operate within a cloud/data center rack.
12Gb/s SAS technology enables a new performance class of storage tiering that unlocks the performance of the latest servers and solid state drivers. 12Gb/s SAS performance delivers the performance needed for storage environments of all sizes, from servers with solid state drives to hyperscale datacenter scale-out architectures. Broadcom solutions help power demanding storage applications.
