Open Industry Cloud Network Fabric Test for Two-Tier Ethernet Network Architecture
For the first time in the networking industry a benchmark has been created to measure a cloud network fabric that utilizes active-active protocols. In the “Open Industry Cloud Network Fabric Test for Two-Tier Ethernet Network Architecture” report, Arista’s “Software-Defined Cloud Network” or SDCN, Avaya’s “Virtual Enterprise Network Architecture or VENA”, Brocade’s “Virtual Cluster Switching” or VCS, Dell’s “Active Fabric Network” or AFN and Extreme Networks’ “Open Fabric” were tested. Each company submitted their cloud network fabric products for test and evaluation. I thank each of these firms for their participation in this industry test and for their contributions to creating the new Lippis Fabric benchmark. If you are building a two-tier ethernet fabric as part of your cloud infrastructure, then you have read this test report before you buy any product.
