Lowering Latencies to Deliver Maximum Benefits to the Application and Network

Part 2 of a 3-part Series Financial success in large securities, exchanges and trading houses come when they are able to receive, process, and fill market orders faster than the blink of an eye. Organization with even the smallest advantage can reap huge profits over the competition. This, in-turn, is driving organizations to optimize at […]

25/50 and 100Gb Ethernet Soon to be Most Deployed Ethernet Bandwidth

Results from the first ever 25, 50 and 100Gb Ethernet plugfest, driven by the 25 Gigabit Ethernet Consortium, are in and the multi-vendor interoperability event has yielded some very promising results that showcase the level of maturity that the technology is currently at.  Before discussing the vendor interoperability testing and results, it is important to […]

2017 Prediction – Networking will take Clouds to New Levels of Efficiency

At the dawn of the 21st century, and in order to meet the market demand, data center architects started to move away from the traditional scale-up architecture, which suffered from a limited and expensive scalability, to a scale-out architecture. Looking backward, it was the right direction to take, since that the ongoing growth of data […]

WooHoo!! We’re Two!! Happy Birthday 25G Ethernet Consortium!

Why 25G Ethernet is like a back-Flipping Wall-Climbing 2 Year Old! Happy Birthday! Today marks the 2nd birthday of the 25G Ethernet Consortium . It was July 1, 2014 that Microsoft, Google, Mellanox, Arista, and Broadcom first announced the formation of the consortium in order to define interoperable 25 and 50 Gigabit Ethernet solutions.

The Race to 25G Ethernet – Seven Critical Issues that will Decide the Winner

Often marketers treat new technology like a foot race, and for some it seems the ultimate goal is to be the first to announce a new product. But in reality the first to announce, just like the first out of the blocks, doesn’t actually determine the end of the story as this race video shows. […]

Ethernet Performance – Can you Afford an Unpredictable Network?

Overlay networks (such as VXLAN) are the most widely deployed implementation of Software Defined Networks (SDN). But when deploying an overlay SDN network, a bullet proof underlay networks is required. Many simply assume that the underlay network will perform reliably and predictably. But it turns out that at the highest network speeds, predictable performance is […]
