The three pillars of IT computing, networking and storage have always been embraced in an odd dance of shifting functionality responsibility as Moore’s Law continues to break down, blur and redistribute lines of responsibility across the three pillars in an effort to increase application performance. For example, networking has always off loaded tasks that were once done by computers. In fact some of the first routers were DEC mini and micro VAX systems back in the early 80s. This trend continues today with more computer functions such as load balancing, caching, security and certain aspects of computer operations migrating to the network fabric. Access to and configuration of storage has gone through huge changes over the years, thanks to networking, with the introduction of Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Storage Area Network (SAN). Computing functionality, applications acceleration, storage access and many other functions have shifted into the network fabric. The latest shift is network virtualization where better utilization, increased flexibility and application performance is promised in the data center and the overall enterprise.
