Length:  7 pages

The four pillars of computing cloud, mobility, social, and analytics are driving new levels of network innovation in datacenter networks. These forces are now buffeting the datacenter along with virtualization and the Internet of Things (IoT), resulting in sweeping changes in traffic patterns that expose the limitations of traditional networks and their operational models. To become a resource rather than a bottleneck to overall datacenter performance, the network must deliver not just  exceptional performance and scalability but also unprecedented automation and orchestration that can yield agility, flexibility, and service velocity. This Technology Spotlight examines these key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing these ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.
