  4. 4. Ethernet Fabrics vs. Legacy NetworksIdeally suited for modern data centers CLASSIC, HIERARCHICAL ARCHITECTURE ETHERNET FABRIC ARCHITECTURE Aggregation Core Core Edge Scalability Access• Inflexible: Deployed as three tiers, optimized for legacy • Flexible: Topology optimized for east/west traffic patterns client/server applications and virtualized applications• Inefficient: Spanning Tree disables links to prevent • Scalable: Flat topology easily scales out at the edge loops, limiting network utilization • Efficient: All links in the fabric are active with Layer 1/2/3• Complex: Additional protocol layers to enable scale multipathing• Expensive: Each switch has to be managed individually • Simple: Entire fabric behaves as logical switch© 2012 Brocade Communications Systems, Inc.
