Hi Ibrahim,

The designs that you probably have seen is for small networks.  In larger networks, your data center switches provide different functionality.  For example most people use the 5K and/or 7K in the server farm, because they provide the capabilities of having unified fabrics.  In this case, you can connect your Servers, Storage, VMs etc...all to the same switches.
