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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
