Vyatta says open source router scales to 10G

Customers can buy 10GB-configured x86 devices for a fraction of what other vendors developing proprietary systems charge.

Vyatta, a maker of Linux-based routers, this week said its software scales to 10 Gigabit Ethernet, providing enterprises and service providers with an open source alternative to proprietary routers for high-performance requirements.

Scalability tests were performed using IBM servers and 10 Gigabit Ethernet cards from Neterion. The 10 gigabit performance was achieved using an IBM System X3550 server and a Neterion Xframe E 10 Gigabit Ethernet card.

Vyatta says customers can buy entire 10 gigabit-configured x86 devices for a fraction of what other vendors developing proprietary systems charge just for the card. The company says a combination of its software with an IBM x3550 platform costs as much as 75% less than a functionally comparable Cisco 7200 series router.

Vyatta says its Linux-based routing software has been downloaded more than 100,000 times over the past year.

Neterion participates in Vyatta's Ready partner program.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
