Arista and Tervela Partner to Provide Next-Generation Messaging Solution for Cloud Computing

Intelligent, Extensible, High-Performance Architecture Provides Foundation for Data-Intensive Financial Services Environments

New York, June 2, 2009 – Arista Networks, the leading vendor of low-latency 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) and Cloud Networking Solutions, and Tervela, the leading provider of open, intelligent, hardware-accelerated messaging systems, have partnered to offer an extensible, high-performance messaging architecture to address the unique challenges of the financial services sector and other contemporary computing environments.

The joint offering combines the capabilities of the Tervela Message Network™ with Arista Networks’10 Gigabit Ethernet switches and Extensible Operating System (EOS). This integration delivers a unified communications platform not only capable of responding to the need for high-performance messaging in modern financial applications, but also facilitating a set of infrastructure-based services.

“The collaboration between Tervela and Arista Networks represents an architectural transformation of the messaging infrastructure that will be a significant business enabler for data-intensive organizations,” said J. Barry Thompson, CEO of Tervela. “The pillars of that transformation are intelligence, extensibility and performance. This is what makes the partnership with Arista so natural.”

Key features of the Tervela and Arista Networks solution are as follows –

  • Intelligent Communications - Application-awareness, dynamic filtering, and adaptive quality of service are key capabilities.
  • Extensible Services - In-network services for information state and data persistence reduce deployment complexity, accelerate application performance and increase computing utilization.
  • High-Performance Architecture - A high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet core coupled with hardware-accelerated message switches ensures unparalleled, deterministic and consistent application performance along with ultra-low latency.

“Recent advances in server capacity, while significant, are outmatched by the explosion of financial information, the sophistication of financial applications, and the demand for rapid, predictable response times," said Kenneth Duda, founder and vice president of Arista Networks. "These demands are met by a new architecture, in which Arista's ultra-low-latency Ethernet switches work with Tervela's intelligent message switches to deliver a superior messaging infrastructure."

Andy Bechtolsheim, founder, chief development officer and chairman of Arista Networks will be the keynote speaker at the STAC Performance Summit in New York City on June 4th. The event will discuss high-performance innovations and standards used to measure messaging. STAC meetings bring together the industry leaders who are building and using the latest low-latency, high-performance solutions for trading. Tervela and Arista Networks are both STAC members.
