Michael Howard, Infonetics Research
"Increasing network bandwidth, choking numbers of workloads in motion, inefficient scaling of the network and the shift to SDN is creating a complex, highly dynamic environment in today's data centers that begs for new solutions. It appears that the high degrees of configurability, scaled capacities, analytics and ability to take part in control and optimization, together make the StrataXGS® Tomahawk Series a dream to help tame the operations of mega scale data centers. Broadcom obviously worked with the thought leaders and innovators among the largest data center operators and those supplying the network equipment in order to develop this chipset."
Bob Wheeler, The Linley Group
"Broadcom continues to deliver tools for architects of next-generation software defined networks. The StrataXGS Tomahawk Series delivers not only immense bandwidth, but advances in switch instrumentation and network control. These features should be a catalyst for developers of operating systems, network-virtualization software and orchestration controllers as they look to SDN in solving the challenges inherent in mega scale cloud networks."
