Rackswitch consumes less power, eliminates delays, has a low latency, has airflow like the one found in servers for cooling purposes at a low cost and are redundant, is flexible, is reliable, and has a high level of performance. They are also scalable and of very high performance caliber with some already made virtualized.Rackswitch is easy to acquire, deploy and manage. It has an OpenFlow feature that minimizes complexity and allows for easy creation of virtualized networks.They are also fault tolerant, multicast and compatible with switches from other vendors.
Room for Improvement:
Rackswitches are very complex and you must be skilled to configure and use them.
IBM’s Rackswitch is specifically designed for data center networking to connect storage, servers and networks thus limiting its use.
Rackswitches can either be rack-level or top of rack that are unified and very affordable. They are not only designed for intelligence and speed but also to bring users, innovators, and businesses closer. Virtual fabric is incorporated into the Rackswitch to reduce complexity and costs in the non-virtualized and virtualized environments.
