Powering mission critical, software-defined data center workloads

In addition to these new support offerings, HPE has been aggressively integrating Arista networking into HPE Data Center Infrastructure Group (DCIG) solution offerings. We’ve been collaborating on addressing many of your most pressing data center and cloud networking use cases, including highly virtualized data centers, IP storage, high performance computing (HPC) and data center security. Let take a closer look:

Virtualization is unprecedented demands on the data center, accelerating the evolution of new application architectures and is having profound effects on the network.

  • HPE and Arista offer a comprehensive portfolio of virtualization solutions and services that span HPE ProLiant ML/DL300, DL500 or Apollo 2000 System servers, VMware vSphere and Arista 7050X and 7250QX 10/40GbE wire speed switches—purpose built to address the growth of web, cloud and dense virtualized multi-tenancy environments.

IP Storage: The cost of deploying/maintaining traditional storage networks is growing exponentially. New requirements for compliance and new applications such as analytics drives ever-increasing volumes of unstructured data collection.

  • HPE and Arista bring together a best of breed SDS architectures to support emerging software-defined cloud network and IP Storage based use cases. These HPE solutions span across our HPE StoreVirtual, ProLiant, Blade, Apollo Servers, Scality Ring and Arista 7280E 100GbE deep buffers switches optimized for and lossless spline/leaf storage networks.

High Performance Computing: HPC is continually increasing in size, density, power requirements, storage, and performance. As these systems grow, the network becomes more and more important to allow full utilization of compute resources. Many HPC environments tend to neglect managing the network.

  • HPE and Arista are collaborating on HPC architectural best practices that take advantage of software defined networks to scale large cluster growth and low costs and drive high compute efficiencies. Our HPE HPC product portfolio spans our Apollo servers and SGI HPC system along with Arista 7500E in the core and 7150 and 7050X Series switches at the edge to support 10/40/100GbE networks.

Data center security: This encompasses greater network scale, virtualization, big data and analytic security requirements, protecting critical data and end-user privacy and assuring business continuity. This in turn is leading to a demand for a new approach in network and data security.

  • HPE continues to offer innovative new Arista products and solutions such as Arista AlgoMatch™, an advanced network enforcement solution for modern cloud networking along with the new Arista 7160 Series25/100GbE programmable switch which provides a flexible and scalable solution for access control, telemetry and secure cloud networking.
