BES IT Systems have just been appointed a Cumulus Networks Reseller and Partner.
Cumulus Networks simplifies data centre operations by delivering operating system products that run on industry standard Ethernet switches.
If your network is due for a refresh what brand would you choose? Which is the best switch brand for a 600 port network? We recently sold 20 Juniper switches to an independent school in Brisbane and I’ve analysed why they choose Juniper over the other major brands. The first question we asked of course was “What are you looking for?”
Linear scaleability is a bit of a buzz term at the moment, specifically when it comes to your organisations network design.
Scalability of a data centre is the ability to construct and expand a network that can accommodate increased traffic or new devices without impacting applications, workflow, or cost per port. The linear part of this equation affects performance and costs: as a system supports more servers, the price per host and performance should stay very close to the same.
Arista’s solutions are compelling when it comes to balancing performance with cost in your data centre. Not only do Arista provide full wire-speed switches that optimise price and performance, the wire-speed switches all have larger port counts, resulting in a more scalable data centre network.
