Management of communication networks in cloud perception
The evolution of communications networks in the transition to the cloud
When we think of cloud computing, we think of automation. This revolution also applies in the field of communications.
It’s time to move away from the manual “box” settings of the past, we must see the network as a whole system instead of a collection of irons and switches.
Traditional closed architectures do not exist in the cloud and instead an open standards-based approach is needed. This is the only way to achieve the growth, control, monitoring and flexibility required in cloud environments. As a result, the path to automation and the cloud requires better programming control of the communications network infrastructure as well.
For the organization, cloud networks have created a need for new skills: the skills of network administrators in virtualization skills or DevOps should be expanded alongside the use of scripting tools for automation.
Adoption of cloud technology in communications networks
Wired networks have evolved significantly since their inception in the late 1980s and have undergone many evolutions and changes leading to new communications solutions categories.
In the field of data center, the concept today is a combination of private infrastructure with public cloud infrastructure (hybrid cloud perception).
Adopting this concept requires very fast branding networks and requires a large scale to grow while maintaining attractive price levels alongside unprecedented performance.
The combination of these requirements, coupled with the emergence of cloud services led by giants such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google, revolutionized the options currently available to organizations in the design and construction of modern hybrid IT infrastructures in the concept of hybrid cloud.
Arista is leading the transformation from traditional communications networks to cloud capture
Arista Networks was established to provide software solutions to the world of communications in data centers. Arista focuses on building Gigabit Ethernet high-speed switching platforms, at Gbe 10/25/40/50/100 speeds, combining software and thus, redefines network architecture and dramatically changes the cost and performance of networks in data centers.
Arista’s portfolio of communication switches were first used in financial trading applications for the purpose of performing their High Speed Wire, extremely low latency and high reliability. Subsequently, Arista’s solutions were adopted by 6 of the 7 leading cloud infrastructure companies in the world thanks to performance, scalability, programming capabilities, flexibility and of course cost.
Over the years the adoption of Arista’s switch technology has expanded to all sectors in large and medium-sized organizations and it brings a real line in every tier.
