Supporting Multiple and High-density Switching Platforms

By Enterprise Networking Mag | Thursday, January 31, 2019

Computer networking is an essential means of sharing information with computers that are wirelessly connected through a network. It is a practice that is widely used in the modern world because it offers a multitude of benefits both to individuals and companies.

Arrcus is developing a network operating system that allows organizations to build scalable infrastructure in physical and cloud networks. Arrcus was founded for the interconnection of people, machines, and data to enrich human experiences. The Arrcus team consists of world-class technologists with an unparalleled record in the shipping industry’s leading networking products, complemented by industry leaders, managers, and strategic entrepreneurs.

Devesh Garg, Co-founder, and CEO, Arrcus, said, “Immersive, data-intensive applications demand major advancements in network-bandwidth, scale-out performance, and convergence latency. To meet this explosive growth, our customers are looking for faster, smarter, and better networking solutions.”

Arrcus recently announced that its operating system, ArcOS, will support multiple 400GbE and high-density 100GbE switching platforms. This is an industry-leading open networking platform optimized for 5G cloud environments and hyper scales. This enables both service providers and companies to use advanced, open, micro-service networking software to build massive, widespread cloud networks that serve exploding video, mobile, AI, machine learning, next-generation IoT, and storage workloads.

ArcOS also uses OpenConfig or YANG programmable APIs based on standards, hyper-performance, resilient control, and data-model-driven telemetry. It is supported on the StrataDNX Jerico+, StrataXGS Trident 3, and Tomahawk 3 silicone switch platforms in Broadcom. ArcOS is the industry’s first independent network operating system to support Tomahawk3-based platforms addressing hyperscale and 5G network operators’ ultra-high bandwidth and low latency needs. With its powerful, resilient control plane, ArcOS can now take advantage of on-chip improvements in L3 routing and deep-package is buffering to deliver the massive performance required to scale bandwidth-hungry, distributed cloud apps. Arccus has also updated ArcOS a number of on-chip scales and traffic management. These updates include traffic-aware scheduling for the detection and re-prioritization of elephant flows; dynamic load balancing that optimizes multi-path routing (ECMP) in the cloud and high-performance computing (HPC), a shared buffer architecture that reduces tail latency, group management, and a larger route scale.

Arrcus joins the three big switch players—Cisco, Arista Networks, and Juniper Networks—with the launch of its 400GB switches, all three of which offer switches integrated with their own software.
