CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2013) - Plexxi, Inc., creator of the industry's first affinity-driven networking solution, today announced the release of its Defining Guide to Application-Centric Infrastructure. Plexxi, which has focused on application-centric networking since 2010, issued the release as a helpful guide as Cisco launched Insieme Networks, its application-centric start-up.

"We're about to hear a heck of a lot more about 'application-centric infrastructure' so let's first understand what it means," said Michael Bushong, vice president of marketing at Plexxi. "Applications are taking their rightful place at the forefront of the networking debate. 'Application-centric infrastructure' is the new black."
