IDC PlanScape: Evaluating Network Disaggregation for the Enterprise

This IDC study not only defines and explains the importance of brilliant-box switching but also assists you in identifying the technology's key stakeholders in your organization and in establishing a plan for how your organization can derive value from it. Finally, this document closes with guidance to help you determine whether brilliant-box switching is something that your organization can adopt today."Many organizations that have adopted SDN in their datacenters are now wondering whether network disaggregation is a similarly viable option," says Brad Casemore, director of research for Datacenter Networks at IDC. "Even enterprises that have not adopted SDN are learning about network disaggregation and considering its potential applicability in their datacenters. While early forms of network disaggregation were suited primarily, if not exclusively, to hyperscalers and large cloud operators, network disaggregation's evolution into "brilliant-box switching" has brought it within the practical embrace of a growing number of enterprises."
