Normally this will mean that you run 100G connections between your switches, and 25G to your servers.  If you’re thinking of jumping from 10G to 40G to the server, 25G is probably the better choice. A single 100G port can be broken up into 2x50G links, giving you the option to connect two servers at 50G each. This way, you can connect the same number of servers, get more band...
