Arista Networks, Inc. Key Developments
Arista Networks, Inc. Introduces Fast Data Center Switch
May 1 13
Arista Networks, Inc. announced significant enhancements to its Arista 7500 modular switching platform that enables Cloud Networks to scale to over 100,000 servers and millions of virtual machines while delivering the first network architecture that can concurrently support Cloud, Big Data, Storage, Web2.0, and Virtualization. With the fully programmable Arista EOS (Extensible Operating System) software, customers can now achieve the level of automation necessary to build true Software Defined Networks. The Arista 7500E offers 1,152 10GbE, 288 40GbE, or 96 100GbE wire-speed ports, making the Arista 7500E the fast and most scalable data center Ethernet switch in the industry. The key improvements of the Arista 7500E compared to the first generation Arista 7500 are as follows: Three times the fabric bandwidth at 30 Terabits per second. Three times the packet buffer at 144 Gigabyte per switch. Three times the control plane performance. Triple the power efficiency at less than 4 watts per 10GbE port. The industry's first triple-speed 10/40/100GbE line card. Much larger L2 and L3 Table Sizes. Wirespeed VXLAN capability on every port. The Arista 7500E includes four new line cards for 10/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet switching, including an industry-first triple-speed 10/40/100G line card with integrated MXP (multi-speed-port) optics that can be software configured on a per port basis delivering constant price-per-bandwidth at every port speed. In 100GbE mode the triple-speed line card offers an order-of-magnitude cost reduction over competing 100Gb Ethernet switch products in the market. The Arista 7500E together with Arista EOS, delivers a set of advanced Software Defined Networking capabilities that support programmatic control, enhanced monitoring, and self-healing resilience to every aspect of the switch, including the following: Wirespeed VXLAN gateways that enable multi-tenant network virtualization. Precise advanced traffic monitoring with Arista LANZ, DANZ and Tap Aggregation. Rapid Automated Indication of Link-Loss (RAIL) for accelerated convergence in Big Data analytics and Hadoop applications. VM Tracer for network wide workload mobility and virtualization in VMware and OpenStack clouds. Distributed system health monitoring with real-time Health Tracer. A Universal Cloud Network Architecture. Cloud networks have universally adopted a leaf-spine architecture, using Layer-3 load-balancing to provide scalable performance. With the Arista 7500E as the spine and Arista 7150/7050 as the leaf, these network topologies can support cloud data centers with more than 100,000 servers that deliver consistent performance for dynamically scaling workloads in public or private clouds, including Hadoop, Big Data, storage, Web 2.0, VM farms, and network virtualization. The 7500E series switches and line-card modules are generally available now. Entry level US list prices start at $99,995 for the switch and $10,000 per 100GbE port, $2,200 per 40GbE and under $600 per 10GbE port.
EditShare Deploys Arista Networks's Arista 7050T-52, 10GBASE-T
Apr 8 13
Arista Networks announced that EditShare, Inc. will incorporate Arista 7050T-52, 10GBASE-T, low-latency switches for its networked shared storage architecture and collaborative editing solutions. The combination of Arista and EditShare enables unprecedented agility and collaboration across tapeless, end-to-end workflows in post-production, TV and film industries. The affordability, reduction in workflow latency and power of 10GbE over copper, enables a stronger creative process through uninterrupted editing and collaboration. Teams get projects done faster with more impactful content. As with all Arista switches, Arista EOS (extensible operating system), simplifies network administration with advanced monitoring and automation capabilities. Because EOS is built upon a stable open-source Linux core, EditShare added a custom web-GUI to make the switches appear as EditShare devices which are also Linux-based. This provides non-technical customers an automated process for switch configuration and management to quickly deploy and characterize high performance over a wide range of existing workstation configurations at 1GbE and new platforms at 10GbE. The Arista 7050T-52 Series switches provide 48 ports of 100/1000/10GBASE-T to server and storage nodes, supporting existing cabling of distances up to 100 meters. This supports the existing connection to 1GbE workstations and to those who migrate to 10GbE without intrusive process, making this solution a quick, compelling, and cost-effective deployment.
Arista Networks, Inc. Delivers the Next Phase of Software Defined Networking
Mar 27 13
Arista Networks announced the next phase of its Software Defined Networking offerings by integrating Arista EOS(TM) (Extensible Operating System) natively with OpenStack, the open-source cloud provisioning and orchestration system. Arista EOS is also delivering enhanced OpenFlow extensions via direct flow based configuration interfaces and data-plane programmability. This combined with Arista's programmatic interfaces showcases a broad array of multi-vendor network monitoring and cloud integration with technology partners such as NEC, NetScout Systems, Palo Alto Networks, SolarWinds, Splunk, Big Switch, Cloudera, Cloudscaling, Corvil and ExtraHop Networks. This innovative suite of SDN capabilities, available in the latest release of Arista EOS, significantly enhances cloud networking workflows for rapid cloud provisioning taking IT workflows that often take weeks and delivering them in seconds. With Arista EOS, customers now have the programmable network capabilities that are necessary to operate a Software Defined Network. Key SDN introductions include: Arista EOS application programmatic interfaces for integration with orchestration and provisioning tools and customer applications. Arista contributed code to the OpenStack Quantum project that enables unified physical and virtual network device configuration. New modular hardware driver architecture in the Quantum OVS plugin, and an open source version of Arista's driver. New EOS native OpenStack provisioning capability that connects the Quantum OVS plugin to EOS via eAPI. OpenFlow 1.0 support in Arista EOS for external controllers. Enhanced Data Plane Programmability via direct flow-based OpenFlow extensions.
