What do most CIOs and their teams want from the corporate networking technologies of the future? Lower latency, enhanced reliability, and higher throughput are all high on the wish list, but—above all—many are looking for a single network infrastructure capable of handling all types of data, clustering, and storage traffic.

The request for a single network sounds like a tall order, but it’s hardly
surprising since many CIOs find their current network infrastructures lacking
in many ways. Today, their teams are typically managing two or three parallel
networks: one for data, one for storage, and often one for server clustering.
Each type of network requires separate switches, Host Bus Adapters (HBAs),
Network Interface Cards (NICs), and cables.
