Data center switches refer to high-performance switches that connect multiple devices on the same network within the data center. They connect the servers and build a network of shared resources that serve as a controller and allow the connected devices to share information and communicate. They can be deployed throughout the data center or to attach a two-tier (leaf-spine) or one-tier flat mesh or fabric architecture. They improve security, streamline operations, automate processes, and help manage application traffic flows in the cloud network efficiently. As a result, data center switches are widely utilized in data centers by large enterprises and cloud providers that heavily rely on virtualization.
