10 Hot New Hardware Products For Enterprise IT
Arista 7500R Series
This new line of modular switches from Arista Networks introduced a new architecture with a snazzy name -- Universal Spine -- in March. What that means is that Arista wants its new hardware to serve as the nerve center for next-generation networks, whether for cloud service providers or enterprise data centers. The system comes with 115 terabytes-a-second fabric and up to 432 100GB Ethernet ports (for the top-of-the-line 7512R switch) for high performance. The system also combines routing with its switching -- marking Arista's first foray into routing -- with new FlexRoute software that can accommodate up to 1 million internet routes.
