The article offers information on the survey conducted by Ziff Davis Enterprise on the growing demand of 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to the server in the U.S. Figures reveal that 75% of respondents are pursuing server virtualization initiatives because they believe that as utilization rates increase through server consolidation, organization will begin to bump up against network bandwidth constraints. The survey also found that another driver for 10G connectivity to the server can come from partners outside of an organization.
