Data Center Networking

Data center networking is the foundation upon which enterprise architecture is built. When this foundation is reliable and high-performing, organizations can provision new services faster, leverage automation and orchestration to reduce the cost of ownership, empower development teams, and better secure assets through enterprise segmentation.

Are You Ready for Data Center Networking?

Modern data center networks must be automated to provide business with the agile services they need. Our ATC is the perfect place for technology executives to learn about the business strategy behind building secure, automated data centers. It's also a great place for architecture professionals and engineers to explore the latest designs, processes and products through an array of hands-on labs, workshops, classes and more.

How Do I Get Started?

Data center networks have evolved to consist of both logical and physical networks. Simplifying data center operations through automation introduces new concepts as well as challenges to maintaining security and reliability. WWT can help you assess your current environment, then design, build, install and operate the optimal data center networking solution to meet your short and long-term business goals. 
Evaluate
Evaluate and learn about the different technologies that make up today's modern data centers, software-defined networking (SDN) solutions, and automation tools and platforms.
Design
Proper underlay (physical network) and overlay (logical network) design is crucial to achieving the desired simplicity of modern data center networks. You can only achieve data security and constant policy by taking a holistic approach that removes traditional data center workgroup silos. WWT can help you plan and design an automated, secure and streamlined data center.
Implement
Because data centers house the crown jewels of any business, they must be properly planned and implemented to mitigate risk. We have the experience and expertise to help you every step of the way.
Operate
The work doesn't stop once a data center is up and running. There are still Day 2 operational tasks, monitoring tools and additional features to implement. WWT can help you make the most of your hardware and software investment. Post-deployment is also a great time to continue learning about new automation tools and skills.
