With 1, 10, 40, and 100 GbE options, VDX 8770 switches deliver the high-performance computing needed to keep up with the demands of a virtualized data center, allowing organizations to reduce network congestion, improve application performance, and meet the capacity required by 10 GbE servers. The 40 GbE and 100 GbE uplinks can easily aggregate high-bandwidth traffic and reduce bottlenecks that occur when aggregating multiple 10 GbE or 40 GbE connections, keeping data center networks working at peak performance.

In a VCS fabric, VDX 8770 switches also help maximize network utilization with hardware-based Extreme Networks Inter-Switch Link (ISL) Trunking. Organizations can create an 80 GbE Extreme Networks ISL trunk by utilizing eight 10 GbE ports. In a VCS fabric, the ISL trunk is automatically formed between two VDX 8770 switches when they are linked together, allowing traffic to be equally distributed among all ports. This increases link efficiency and limits traffic disruptions, especially during high-traffic times. Also, 40 GbE and 10 GbE trunking is supported between VDX 8770, 6940, and 6740 Switches.

Extreme Networks Metro VCS technology provides an innovative solution to interconnect data centers and their traffic flows over distance, guaranteeing supported traffic characteristics. Metro VCS technology configured for regular Ethernet traffic supports 10 GbE ISLs up to 80 km, 40 GbE ISLs up to 40 km, and 100 GbE ISLs up to 40 km.

To configure Metro VCS technology for lossless traffic applications (DCB/FCoE), refer to the Extreme Metro VCS Pre-deployment Guide for details.

Cloud and Big Data Environments

VDX 8770 switches deliver optimized buffer and latency and high performance to enable greater cross-sectional bandwidth for east-west traffic—exactly what cloud workloads demand. These switches offer the flexibility needed to scale out networks, deliver intelligence to more effectively manage VM mobility, as well as provide an SDN-enabled and programmable infrastructure. In addition, VDX 8770 switches offer an advanced feature set that non-virtual and Big Data environments require. With 10, 40, and 100 GbE options for designing oversubscribed or nonoversubscribed networks, high throughput, and optimized buffer and latency, the VDX 8770 is an ideal switch for Big Data applications.

Together with Extreme Networks data center fabrics, VDX 8770 switches can simplify network design and operations for both cloud and Big Data network fabrics. These switches deliver 4-microsecond port-to-any-port latency. Moreover, they offer an industry-leading 15 GB/module deep buffer, which provides the buffering capacity to handle increases in traffic, especially during peak times when ports are congested, allowing traffic to be distributed across the ports.

High Availability

The VDX 8770 provides high availability at the line-card level, an industry first. Line-card high availability allows the multi-core CPU within each line card to support two separate Network OS instances in an active/standby configuration. This enables hitless failover within each line card of the chassis. Even during an In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU), there is no disruption because the line card does not need to completely restart while trying to sync with the new code version.

Support for Current and Future Application Needs

The VDX 8770 can be used to build a variety of VCS fabric topologies to support a wide range of scale and application requirements. Architectural options include:

  • Small-scale fabrics: Can collapse access and aggregation tiers using the VDX 8770 as a port-dense, middle-of-row/end-of-row access switch.
  • Medium-scale fabrics: Can utilize the VDX 8770 as a spine switch in combination with VDX 6740 and 6940 leaf switches to build highly scalable Layer 2/3 domains, complete with automatic and secure support for VM mobility.
  • Large-scale fabrics: Can use the VDX 8770 homogeneously as both a leaf and spine switch or to aggregate multiple access-tier switches in full or partially meshed fabric domains with a logically flat network topology.

Optimizing East-West Traffic

Traditional data centers are architected with a rigid, threetier tree topology optimized for the north-south traffic flow of client-server computing environments, compromising performance, increasing latency, and creating bottlenecks. With the increased prevalence of virtualization and distributed applications, data center network traffic is now predominantly east-west, or server to server. Extreme Networks data center fabrics address these traffic patterns by moving traffic through any of the active paths and avoiding the multiple hops required in other tiered topologies.

The VDX 8770 and VCS fabrics offer benefits for today’s most compelling and demanding applications, including:

  • Rich media: Service providers and cloud providers require support for significant east-west traffic within their data centers, along with support for large numbers of VMs and VM mobility. Content providers with applications such as video on demand require support for significant amounts of north-south traffic. The VDX 8770 and Extreme Networks data center fabrics are ideal for these applications, as they provide a low-latency, cut-through architecture and considerable throughput to enable balanced east-west and north-south traffic performance.
  • Big Data: To realize business benefits from their unstructured data, organizations require seamless access to both compute and storage resources. High-performance computing environments process large amounts of data that drive significant eastwest traffic patterns and require low latency for IPC interconnection. Big Data has emerged as a critical technology trend, and the VDX 8770 provides key advantages such as high-performance, line-rate 10 GbE, 40 GbE, and 100 GbE.
  • Mission-critical applications: A wide variety of data center, cloud, and enterprise applications can take advantage of the VDX 8770, including ERP, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), and collaboration applications such as Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint. The virtualization-aware networking characteristics of the VDX 8770 and Extreme Networks data center fabrics, along with high-availability and essential security functionality, help ensure that critical data services function as intended while protecting vital data from corruption or loss.
