Big Data is comprised of datasets that grow so large that they become cumbersome to work with using on-hand database management tools. Difficulties include capture, storage, search, sharing, analytics, and visualizing. The growth trend continues because of the benefits of working with larger and larger datasets which allows analysts to discover business trends and solve problems. Though a moving target, current limits are on the order of terabytes, exabytes and zetabytes of data.

.Big Data and Cloud Storage

Microseconds matter in the ultra-competitive world of High Frequency Trading (HFT). Trading architectures that deliver the lowest latency solution are the difference between profit and loss for these financial firms. IBM, Mellanox and Arista have combined to demonstrate a low latency messaging transport solution that facilitates the high-speed delivery of market, trade, reference and event data, in or between front-, middle and back-office operations.

. Reliable Multicast Messaging With Ultra Low Latency And High Throughput

The extensible design principles of Arista’s EOS provide the ability to rapidly customize EOS to meet your operational requirements. Instead of creating ‘off box’ scripts/tools or waiting year(s) for your chosen vendor to react you can easily customize EOS.

Networks designed in the late 90s primarily addressed static applications and email. The future of cloud networking optimizes the following variables: guaranteed performance, low latency and any-to-any communication patterns.  Arista’s switching architectures and expanded 7000 family are designed to deliver the optimized cloud networking solution.

.Switching Architectures for Cloud Network Design

The drive for scalable and efficient cloud networks has led to 10Gb Ethernet as the interface of choice for simultaneously transporting data, storage and compute information over a common Ethernet cloud. Multiple classes of applications, rely on latency-optimized architectures for ultra fast response times.

. Architecting Low Latency Cloud Networks

The combination of virtualization and cloud computing creates a computing paradigm that requires careful network considerations.  A cloud network must support the abstraction of virtualization services from specific physical servers.

. Impact of Virtualization on Cloud Networking

This paper provides an overview of SAN and NAS storage solutions, highlights the ubiquitous role of 10 Gigabit Ethernet in these solutions, and illustrates how Arista's 7000 series of switches directly address this market.

. Role of 10Gb Ethernet in Storage Whitepaper

The standard for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (IEEE802.3ae) was ratified in 2002. This white paper is an overview of the factors that are driving the growth for 10 GbE in the data center.
