We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's an open-source solution."
Offered in 5-24 port configurations supporting both Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), Broadcom's RoboSwitch Ethernet Switching solutions are highly integrated, cost effective, and smart-managed based on a field-proven, industry-leading architecture. These Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet solutions combine all of the functions of a high-speed switch system including packet buffers, PHY transceivers, media access controllers (MACs), address management, port-based rate control, and a non-blocking switch fabric into a single CMOS device.
The Mellanox Open Ethernet switch family delivers the highest performance and port density with a complete chassis and fabric management solution enabling converged data centers to operate at any scale while reducing operational costs and infrastructure complexity. This family includes a broad portfolio of Top-of-Rack (TOR) switches that range from 12 to 128 ports, with Ethernet data rates of 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE and 100GbE per port. These switches allow the building of cost-effective and scalable switch fabrics, from a few nodes to tens-of-thousands of nodes.
