Our data center architects were in Las Vegas earlier this month for the Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference. They want to share the insights gleaned from the countless conversations with attendees they had and the invaluable content sessions they attended.
The Arista Cloud Builders roadshows provide attendees with a great platform for Layer 2/Layer 3 discussions, best practices for designing and deploying data center networks, and much more. I attended my first Cloud Builders event back in June, and I found the recent event in Columbus, OH to be no different.
The SC16 conference in Salt Lake City is known in the computing industry for hosting the fastest performing network in the world – SCinet. Thousands of attendees and exhibitors gather to this must-attend event to rely on that network alone to showcase their latest research in high bandwidth-driven computing and networking systems. The best part? It’s run over CABLExpress fiber optic cable assemblies.
It’s been said that taking a long, hard look in the mirror is one of the best things you can do to better yourself. This philosophy also has a positive correlation when it comes to managing your business.
After learning about the recent cancellation of hundreds of Delta Air Lines flights, we thought about the challenges and nightmares that can send data center managers into a tailspin. At CABLExpress, we have spent a significant amount of time and effort researching potential causes for human error in relation to the product set that CABLExpress has developed over the last 37 years.
Having worked in data centers, and been responsible for designing complicated layer one cabling topologies, you know it’s not easy to route your cabling everywhere you need it to go. But did you know that you could get help with your cabling challenges from a very unexpected (and furry) source? That’s right, ferrets.
Data center managers are evaluating the numbers and trying to determine if leasing or owning data center space would provide a significant benefit in cost savings. Recently in Chicago, a number of colocation companies tried to provide the answer at The Fifth Annual Greater Chicago & Midwest Data Center Summit.
The evolution of data center networking has been at the forefront of the data center industry for some time now – the players are changing and so is the game. Arista Networks has become a significant leader in the area of data center networking.
Like any good superhero origin story, the tale of port replication™ begins with some evil villains and how a hero decided to stand up to them. The villains? Lack of data center space, cabling confusions, and downtime. The hero? You guessed it – port replication!
