Traditional storage networks and costs are growing at an exponential rate. New requirements for compliance and new applications such as analytics mean that ever-increasing volumes of unstructured data are collected and archived. Legacy storage networks cannot meet the need to scale- out capacity and reduce capital and operational expenditures. In response to this challenge, new storage architectures based on Ethernet have evolved. How will this change the storage network? Most future IT asset deployments will leverage 10 10GbE and 40GbE for the underlying storage interconnect for newer applications. Arista Networks has responded to the need for a new IP Ethernet storage fabric. Arista provides industry- leading products and solutions that deliver operational and infrastructure efficiencies that have been previously unavailable.
