Ibrix, Arista Team on Cloud Storage

MENLO PARK, Calif. -- Arista Networks, the leading vendor of
high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) and Cloud Networking Solutions
and IBRIX Inc., the leader in scalable file serving solutions, today announced a
joint collaboration to deliver a scalable, cost-effective, highly resilient NAS and
iSCSI cloud storage solution for Financial Services, Media, Web2.0, HPC, and
Cloud Computing applications.

With its highest port density on the market (at 48 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports per
1RU), full non-blocking performance, sub-microsecond latency, highly resilient
EOS software, and unique live-patching capability, Arista’s 7100 family of 10
Gigabit Ethernet switches provide an ideal interconnect for iSCSI and NAS
protocols. Coupled with IBRIX Fusion™, IBRIX’s purpose-built scale-out NAS
platform, they provide a powerful solution that helps companies eliminate storage
bottlenecks and increase I/O throughput for their increasingly demanding
applications, while providing a flexible deployment methodology for the best
performance at the right price.

The Arista 7100 and IBRIX Fusion delivered a single-stream file read
performance of almost 600MB/sec in a one-to-one client-to-file server ratio
configuration, and a request/response rate of 46,000 per second, up to 6 times
better than with 1 Gigabit Ethernet.
