Understanding network deployment is important for anyone considering ODAs as a solution for their company. You need to understand the networks provided by an ODA to determine how they mesh with your requirements and data center standards. Security requirements may need to be considered during your network planning. The deployment of engineered systems often involves blending or broadening job roles, because tasks that used to be handled by multiple teams are now packaged into the engineered system solution. When deploying new solutions at your company, you can seldom just pass the documentation on to your networking and data center teams and ask them to develop the network requirements. You may need to become directly involved in preparing the network specifications for deploying your ODAs, or at least understand the options to answer questions that come from other teams. This chapter will help you understand your ODA network deployment options.
