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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
