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.

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.

Ruan Pethiyagoda, Cameron Boehmer, John S. Dvorak, and Tim Sze, trained at San Francisco’s Hack Reactor, an institute designed for intense fast paced learning of programming, put together a program based on the N-Queens algorithm designed by the University of Cambridge’s Martin Richards, and modified it to run in parallel across multiple machines.

Cloud computing is gaining ground in utilization by mid-sized institutions who are looking to expand their experimental high performance computing resources. As such, IBM released what they call Redbooks, in part to assist institutions’ movement of high performance computing applications to the cloud.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
