What are you waiting for?
Now that you know the top four things to consider when making the jump to 25G, only one question remains: What are you waiting for? There are no roadblocks and 25G offers the opportunity to future-proof your data center.
Whether you want to upgrade your servers, switches or storage, you can choose gear that is 25G-ready. It will automatically downshift to operate seamlessly at 10G with the rest of your infrastructure. And, as you upgrade the data center infrastructure over time, you will begin to recognize a 2.5X performance gain with a minimal price delta. This will improve the performance and efficiency of every workload that you run and allow better utilization of expensive compute and storage resources. All of this means that it is really a no-brainer these days to make the move to 25G.
