Networking and Grand Award
Product: 7500E Data Center Switch Vendor: Arista Networks
The appeal of the Arista 7500E to our judges was pretty simple: it’s a super-fast, big-ass switch built for networks brimming with virtual machines. It supports a mix of 10, 40 and 100GbE ports, boats a 30Tbps backplane, supports per-port VXLAN termination, and offers compelling per-port pricing.
