Click through as network specialists from Ciena take a closer look at networking elements that are driving a new era of cloud computing.

During the early 1990s, visitors to a trade show clicked on a hyperlink and used the Internet to connect to over 600 servers. It was called the World Wide Web and stunned the users with the simplicity of the operation and how easy it was to get information. Of course, today we can connect to more than 690 million servers, and the Web is woven into the very fabric of our lives. It was the dawn of a new era in technology.

In this slideshow, network specialists from Ciena take a closer look at the networking elements that are driving a new era of cloud computing.
