Shifting from Enterprise to Cloud with the Arista 7500E

The rapid adoption in data centers of virtualized servers powered by multicore CPUs, the deployment of petabytes of storage and the increasing use of Hadoop for data analytics has challenged the traditional data center network. The resultant mobile workloads and massive unstructured data sets shuffling from nearline storage to server clusters for data analytics are exceeding even the predictable network performance increases of Moore’s Law. There is no doubt that legacy oversubscribed enterprise networks are simply unable to cope with the latency, bandwidth and throughput needs of today’s clouds and massive data centers.

In 2010 we launched Arista’s cloud networking vision based on our modern programmable software (Arista EOS) powering our flagship award-winning platform, the Arista 7500. This platform was the centerpiece of a new architecture for data center networks with world-beating leaf-spine performance. Now in 2013 our next generation groundbreaking Arista 7500E has smashed all our previous records! We have tripled the performance of the existing 7500 while providing investment protection for our current 7500 customers, and have received critical acclaim across the board from analysts, press and customers!
