BLADE Network Technologies Wins Top Spot in 10G Data Center Switch Test


Category: Uncategorized

Congratulations to BLADE Network Technologies, PTS’ top-of-rack switch vendor and a trusted leader in data center networking, on winning the top spot in the 10G data center switch competition.

BLADE’s RackSwitch G8124 received Network World’s Clear Choice award in its lab test of top-of-rack 10G Ethernet data center switches for delivering a winning combination of features and performance as well as top energy efficiency. The BLADE product faced stiff competition from switches produced by Arista Networks, Cisco, Dell, Extreme and HP, all of which sported at least 24 10Gigabit interfaces. The products faced a 10 point comparison and were subjected to three months of demanding performance tests.

    Arista got a higher score than Blade at 4.28 vs 4.23 , stop misrepresenting that Blade was #1!
    Yes they came #2 by a narrow margin

    Better check your score card…Arista won the top spot, Blade was second.

    Thanks for commenting. Both products were top picks. We certainly don't mean to take away from Arista's accomplishment, only to congratulate one of our valued vendors. We applaud all who received top ratings for putting out quality products.
