Lippis and Ixia staged the comparative 10 GbE switch performance and power test to assist IT business leaders in purchase decisions and product differentiation.
"Latency is fundamental to assuring a user’s excellent experience. With east-west traffic flows making up as much as 80% of data center traffic, low latency requirements are paramount as every trip a packet makes between servers when responding to an end user’s query adds delay to the response and reduces the user experience or revenue potential," said Lippis. "Our rigorous testing showed that Force10 has indeed placed great emphasis on minimizing latency as well as power/cooling costs in the construct of its architecture."
Low Latency, High Performance a Must for Demanding Transactional Environments
In high-frequency trading (HFT), high-performance computing (HPC), and similar performance-sensitive environments, ultra-low-latency 10 GbE switching functionality, high performance and Layer 3 feature richness are critical to handling the huge volumes of bursty network traffic that represents millions of transactions each day.
The S4810 10/40 GbE ToR switch is purpose-built for applications in data center and computing environments that require the highest bandwidth and lowest latency. Leveraging a non-blocking, cut-through switching architecture, the S4810 delivers line-rate Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding capacity with ultra low latency to maximize network performance. The compact S4810 design provides 48 dual-speed 1/10 GbE ports as well as four 40 GbE uplinks to conserve valuable rack space.
