When designing and procuring Ethernet Fabric networks for public or private cloud, IT executives don’t need lingering concerns about performance, power consumption, virtualization scale, or latency. As Ethernet fabrics drive new levels of efficiency and automation, it’s important to select the right Top-of-Rack (ToR) switch to support modern data centers and cloud infrastructures.


To help IT executives determine which Ethernet switch is the best fit for their data center, the Lippis Report and Ixia Labs conducted a comparative, open industry evaluation of 10 GbE (Gigabit Ethernet) and 40 GbE data center ToR switches including the Brocade® VDX® 6740 Data Center Switch. The complete test results are detailed in the Lippis-authored report, Open Industry Network Performance & Power Consumption Test for Private/Public Data Center Cloud Computing Ethernet Fabric.
