IDC White Paper: How Network Disaggregation Facilitates Datacenter and IT Modernization


In this new white paper, sponsored by Dell EMC and Pluribus Networks, IDC analyst Brad Casemore examines network disaggregation of hardware and software and how it can lay the foundation for a data center network infrastructure that is “automated, agile, flexible, and scalable.”

“The growing interest in disaggregation, which occurred first among the hyperscale cloud behemoths, is about establishing the right network abstractions to allow for software-defined agility, flexibility, simplicity, operational efficiencies, and scalability in networking.”

Casemore further examines digital transformation and the evolution of IT platforms, as well as networking in the cloud era.

“Those who embrace technologies such as SDN, open approaches to networking, network automation, and network orchestration will be able to directly contribute to business outcomes, support the needs of developers and lines of business, and go from being seen as cost centers to being perceived as legitimate contributors to meaningful business outcomes.”

After a comprehensive review of network technologies and trends, the paper examines Dell EMC open networking hardware and Pluribus Networks open networking, next-generation SDN data center solutions, including Netvisor®️ ONE network operating system and the Adaptive Cloud Fabric™.
