As part of a program to continuously increase computing power and reduce energy consumption at its green data center in Grenoble, France, Business & Decision Group recently trialed the benefits of consolidating storage and network traffic onto a high-bandwidth 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fabric. The reduction in equipment and cabling provided by 10 GbE simplifies network management and maintenance, consumes less energy, and, from a customer perspective, enables faster cloud availability. Business & Decision Group is now consolidating its entire data center network to IntelÂ® Ethernet 10 Gigabit Server Adapters.
â€śA simplified network reduces management complexity, while less cabling and fewer network adapters reduce the number of potential points of failure, helping to minimize maintenance and associated costs,â€ť said Gerald Dulac, Green DC project manager for Business & Decision Group.
