BANGALORE, India, December 14, 2010 -- Arista Networks, a US based company and the leader in 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches for cloud networking, announced the opening of an engineering centre in India. The Bangalore R&D centre will focus on expanding Arista’s Extensible Operating System (EOS) which is purpose-built for large data centre and cloud scale deployments. Arista Networks is planning to grow the Arista Bangalore R&D centre to fifty engineers in the next two years, selecting exceptional high quality technical talent from premier engineering institutions and companies.
The presence in India will allow Arista Networks to expand global software development capabilities across three continents, Asia, Europe (UK) and North America (California). Arista’s cloud networking approach offers a balanced trade-off between closed networking platforms of today and new open development environments of the 21st century. The killer applications driving network deployments are no longer email; instead social networking such as Facebook, video delivery, search applications, Hadoop clusters and financial algorithmic trading running on private or public cloud networks are driving significant bandwidth, latency, and automation requirements. Backed with a thousand man-years of development and software expertise, Arista has built a ground-up networking OS purpose-built for clouds and data centres. EOS solves important pain points in today’s network deployments offering consistent high levels of scalability, provisioning and resilience.
Jayshree Ullal, president & CEO Arista Networks states, “Arista Networks success lies in building innovative, cost effective, cloud networking solutions. This has been possible due to our world-class engineering team of highly experienced veterans from leading networking and server companies. We see tremendous opportunities in India for us and our partners.”
The Arista India R&D centre will be based in Kormangala, Bangalore led by Amod Dani, Director of Engineering, reporting into US based Ken Duda, Arista’s Vice President of Software Engineering. Arista has demonstrated a strong base of over 500 Customers worldwide in just two years across a broad range of industry segments including capital markets, scientific computing, defence, carrier/mobility, media and entertainment, and cloud computing. Arista customers include governments, Tier 1 carrier/PTT, and many Fortune 500 customers.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
