Modular Approach in Network Design

In a modular design, the network is divided into distinct building blocks based on features and behaviors. These building blocks are used to construct a network topology within the data center. This approach has several advantages. The main advantage occurs during the changes in the network. These blocks or modules can be added and removed from the network without redesigning the entire data center network.

Because of the hierarchical topology of a modular design, the addressing is also simplified within the data center network. Modularity also implies isolation of building blocks, so these blocks are separated from each other and communicate through specific network connections between the blocks. Therefore, ...
