A network topology is how the various components of a network are arranged. For our purposes, this refers to the various devices that OmniStream (R-Type or Pro) is connected to and how those devices are connected to each other. Although there are a variety of different network topologies, OmniStream will nearly always be connected to one of three groups:
- Single logical switch.
- Fat tree.
Each of these topologies has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages
The simplest network topology we will come across is that of a single switch or multiple physical switches that are stacked and act as one logical switch. In this type of system, each OmniStream device is connected to a single logical switch that is not connected to any other switches/routers.
