A Data Center Fabric, Critical to a Next-Generation Data Center Network
Unlike traditional multitier architectures, a data centre fabric effectively flattens the network architecture, thereby reducing the distance between endpoints within the data centre. ... Spine-leaf data centre fabric architecture. Data centre fabrics of all kinds share another design goal.
