New switch targets Web 2.0 apps

Vendor makes device for modern era

Arista Networks has unveiled a Gigabit Ethernet datacentre switch designed to better manage the challenges to network management brought about by storage, video, market data feeds and Web 2.0 applications.

The Arista 7048 is a fixed-configuration 1RU device that sports 48 wire-speed 100/1000BASE-T Ethernet RJ-45 ports with four SFP+ 1/10Gbit/s Ethernet uplinks. It supports up to 40Gbit/s of interconnect capacity to switches in the core of the network.

It also integrates Citrix's NetScaler VPX load balancing and application security software to divvy up traffic loads across servers within a rack.

It features large buffers on each port that, combined with non-blocking operation and load balancing, help manage congestion during peak traffic loads.
