"It's not just about where applications and workloads reside, though that's an undeniable consideration, but it's also about how cloud as an operating model and a set of software-defined technologies has redefined what's required of datacenter networking, including Ethernet switches. To find growth and expand market presence, vendors must focus on the full spectrum of cloud builders, which seek to modernize and fortify their datacenter networks in support of modern applications and sustained digital success."
