A Cisco Small Form-Factor Pluggable Transceiver (SFP) will not work in an Arista switch, nor will an HP SFP work in a Cisco switch. I despise this game, because it’s a way to force me into buying the same company’s optics when another’s may be less expensive, or even work better. Sadly, many of the big vendors do it, so I can’t single out any one of them. I find the practice repugnant since the SFP interface is supposed to be an open standard designed for vendor interoperability (search for the terms sfp multi source agreement to read the original multivendor agree ment on the SFP standard).

In other words, this buffer would take less than 1/10th of a second to fill, but 4 seconds to empty. Think about this, too: propagation delay (the time it takes for packets to travel over distance) from New York to California might be 100 ms over multiple providers. Let’s add that much on top for computational delay (the amount of time it takes for servers, switches, and routers to process packets), which gives us 200 ms. That’s one-fifth of a second, which is a pretty long time in our infinitely connected high-speed world.

Will SDN become a widespread reality? I don’t know. I think the idea has merit, but as of mid-2012, I’m not making purchasing decisions based on it. That viewpoint may change in the next few years. So, which is better: custom silicon, or merchant silicon? As far as Arista is concerned, merchant silicon is the path they’ve chosen. I can’t tell you which is better, because I’ve seen great products from both camps. I will tell you that I really like what I’m seeing as a result of the competition caused by vendors moving to merchant silicon.
