Take a Network Break and sample our delicious assortment of tech news, including our take on Arista’s latest product release (the 7500R, a.k.a the Universal Spine) as well as Huawei’s impressive third-quarter results.
A new report from IHS tracks a (likely temporary) stall in white box switch growth, NTT agrees buy Dell’s services business, and Cisco customers abide with the venerable Catalyst 6500.
The open-source CloudRouter reaches a throughput milestone, Brocade buys a startup to automate remediation, HPE shares more details about its composable infrastructure, PlumGrid adds containers, and Intel touts its power as a cloud enabler.
Thanks to guest analyst Mike Fratto for his probing punditry. He gets first pick of the virtual donuts.
