2011 Finalist一覧

Data Center & Storageの Finalistは Alcatel-Lucent/Juniper/Mellanoxです。
Juniperとの比較では (この前段に Mellanoxとの比較)

  "Alcatel-Lucent's design from our other co-finalist, Juniper's QFabric.
   While both provide flat, high-performance, massively scaleable
   networks, QFabric seems more appropriate for a wholesale data center
   redesign, as it requires a greater architectural, hardware, and thus
   budgetary, commitment to deliver on the promise of a single flat yet
   highly scalable network.

   All three finalists were strong entrants. We can't help but admire
   the QFabric's innovative, extensible switch backplane and the
   impressive custom silicon enabling Mellanox to deliver 36 40 Gigabit
   ports in a 1U box. But in the end, Alcatel-Lucent had the most
   compelling design and supporting products for building extremely
   scalable, high-performance, cloud-like data center networks suitable
   for today's virtualized applications. - Kurt Marko, Judges

[san-tech][03035] Alcatel-Lucent Data Center Switching Solution, April 5, 2011

Alcatel-Lucentから Data Center Switching Solutionが発表されていました

"Alcatel-Lucent enables enterprises to deliver applications as services
 with breakthrough data center switching solution"
 April 5, 2011!ut/p/kcxml/04_Sj9SPykssy0xPLMnMz0vM0Y_QjzKLd4x3tXDUL8h2VAQAURh_Yw!!?LMSG_CABINET=Docs_and_Resource_Ctr&LMSG_CONTENT_FILE=News_Releases_2011/News_Article_002398.xml

  "today announced its new data center switching solution blueprint for
   enterprises. This unique solution provides a complete data center
   switching fabric that extends the boundaries of the data center
   through virtualization of the network with an innovative "mesh"
   architecture design. This reduces costs and allows an enterprise to
   leverage its IT resources and optimize application delivery to
   employees across sites and devices."
  "Alcatel-Lucent's data center switching solution delivers two
   architecture breakthroughs: the data center "mesh" and the "pod."
   Virtualization in the data center requires enterprises to optimize
   server-to-server traffic while striving to reduce costs.
   Alcatel-Lucent's "pod" architecture addresses this need with the
   new OmniSwitch 6900 by delivering a highly dense solution that
   allows enterprises to directly connect top-of-rack switches without
   relying on a core switch to carry server-to-server traffic."

  "Providing the ability to connect data center pods together across
   multiple sites, Alcatel-Lucent’s ground-breaking "mesh"
   architecture delivers a complete switching fabric that can bring
   together more than 14,000 server 10Gig ports with only two core
   switches, delivering end-to-end latency of less than five
   microseconds and unmatched resiliency."

キーワードは "mesh" と "pod" ですが、良く解りません。

2011年 5月 8~12日に開催される Interop Las Vegasで詳細発表みたいです。
