"Intel buys networking chipmaker because the data center is now
 the computer"

  "Update: Looks like Arista's Ullal agrees. She emailed GigaOM
   saying that deal was great for the industry because it validates
   the concept of merchant silicon as opposed to the specialized
   chips that Cisco and other networking vendors built. It also
   moves Intel into the networking sector helping it diversify.
   Now switch builders can choose from silicon from Intel, Broadcom
   or Marvell. She added, "This is great for Arista as Fulcrum now
   has backing of Intel (and truly address the enterprise to cloud
   networking migration in a mainstream manner). Arista has been
   one of Fulcrum's top customers.""
Jayshree Ullal, President and CEO of Arista Networks.
