As enterprise data centers adopt turn-key technologies to drive agility and cost efficiencies, the network layer, when contrasted with compute and virtualization infrastructure, is typically the least agile component to design, configure, and operate.
When it comes to troubleshooting and driving operational efficiencies, network issues such as congestion and packet errors are heightened due to the complex interaction between the network and the teams managing multi-vendor, hyper-converged solutions in both large-scale data centers and remote office IT environments. In this open session we will outline the challenges for two key data center groups—server administrators and network managers—and demonstrate how each can quickly connect the dots and identify the root cause of issues.
