Arista Networks (NYSE: ANET) today announced the 7280E Series fixed leaf
switches, along with monitoring and automation enhancements to Arista
EOS®, continuing the evolution of software driven cloud networking.
This new family of switches with its ultra-deep packet buffers and
100GbE uplinks enhance application performance, while providing
resiliency, programmability and visibility into the network.

System Upgrade (SSU), now available for both Spine and Leaf
switches, allows enterprises to perform hitless software upgrade across
the entire network. Automation via EOS eliminates planned downtime and
allows for 24x7x365, cloud-like uptime for in-house applications.
Optimal for Storage and Big Data
Series extends the Arista leaf switch portfolio with a 1000x
increase in packet memory, compared to typical switches in top-of-rack
applications. This ability to handle network congestion results in a low
loss network for critical workloads such as IP Storage, Big Data and
streaming video. The same EOS binary image runs across all Arista
products and includes support for VXLAN, LANZ, DANZ and Arista Tracers
on these new platforms, lowering the certification and overall Opex for
“The eBay storage environment is network intensive and requires switches
that are architected for these unique requirements,” said Russ McElroy,
Senior Manager of eBay Marketplaces and PayPal. “The Arista 7280E
10/40/100GbE systems have ultra-deep buffers and are optimized for
intensive workloads such as storage.”
TAP Aggregation and Visibility
Analyzer (DANZ) feature set that provides real-time monitoring
capabilities, is now available on the 7500E modular spine switches,
providing visibility at 10/40/100GbE speeds at terabit capacity. New
features in EOS include a Tap Aggregation Manager, Deep Packet
Inspection (DPI) and advanced traffic steering that allows network
operators to precisely select the flows that need monitoring.
Additionally, the addition of OpenFlow 1.3 support for the 7500E enables
research centers and universities to deploy 100GbE networks
interconnecting to Internet2 for bulk data transfers.
Universal Optics reduce fiber need by 75%
Other announcements include a standards compliant universal optic that
enables 40GbE over a single pair of either multi-mode or single-mode
fiber, enabling seamless and cost-effective migration from 10 to 40GbE.
The Universal QSFP optics have a reach of 150m over multi-mode fiber and
500m over single mode fiber, and can also interoperate with IEEE LR4
The Arista 7280E switches are in customer trials now with general
availability in August 2014. The Universal 40GbE transceiver is
orderable now. SSU feature set for 7050X leaf switches is available in
beta releases now and generally available by late 2014.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.
In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
