Data Centre networking – Simplify and modernise with Bechtle.
New requirements for company network infrastructures concerning simplification, automation, new intelligence and support for a cloud strategy are heralding a new evolution in data centre networking. This shift towards “any workload – any location – any cloud” means that infrastructures have to provide applications faster and at full availability, everywhere, at all times, programmable, automated and secure.
Data centre networks are beginning to see new designs. Traditional hierarchically switched architectures are being transformed into data centre fabric architectures, where “core – distribution – access” approaches are becoming outdated. An example for this is Cisco ACI – Application-Centric Infrastructure.
The advantages of modern data centre networking at a glance:
Provisioning in minutes, not hours or days.
Highest availability “anytime – anywhere”.
Automation thanks to APIs.
Macro and micro-segmentation in the network.
Centralised “application-centric” management.

Innovative architectures simplify data centre switching.
What is the fastest way to realise complex configurations? How can a data centre network be set up and managed more easily? Software-defined networking, network virtualisation or even converged infrastructure solutions help to develop new architectures that are highly stable, performant and available. These are built on specially designed and high-performance data centre switches that are programmable, work in virtualised and automated environments and are secure and highly available with low procurement (CapEx) and operation (OpEx) costs. These data centre switches offer:
- High performance and port density for all bandwidth requirements
- Low latency times as well as high availability and scalability
- Convergence of Ethernet and Fibre Channel
- Switch virtualisation, automation and cloud-readiness
Converged infrastructures – Your data’s best friend.
Converged and hyperconverged infrastructures consolidate high performance, processors, virtualisation and network components within a confined space. This has multiple benefits:
Installed and deployed in less than an hour.
High operational efficiency thanks to consolidation.
Linear scalability and lower energy costs.
Can be used in virtualised and non-virtualised environments.
Ready-made for different workloads and easy component management.
High degree of standardisation.
The Application-Centric Infrastructure and HyperFlex solutions by Cisco offer these application-orientated network solutions for the data centre. In addition, our strong partnership with other leading technology providers in the hyperconverged solutions market, such as HPE, Dell EMC or VMware, provides more flexibility and improved service. For example, our fully-managed solution Hyperconverged as a Service, for which we fortify an efficient hyperconverged platform on the basis of HPE Simplivity with Bechtle Managed Services. We take care of resourcing, financing, implementation and operation.
The triad of modernity – Software-defined, virtualised, automated.
In the future, virtualisation will play a huge role for data centre networking, as only software-defined networking, virtualisation and automation can provide real advantages and a competitive edge on the market, as they offer:
- High agility and the ability to configure workflows and resource pools in minutes.
- Invoice per client and process optimisation.
- Virtualised and standardised environments, routines and processes.
- Compatibility with virtual and non-virtual environments.
- Template-based workflows for handling repetitious tasks.
- Infrastructure access via open interfaces (APIs).
Bechtle supports you with this triad of modern data centre networking with year-long experience, the highest certifications and market-leading technology.
