Aruba, a HPE company, introduced its CX 10000 Distributed Services Switch, aimed at enabling enterprises to deploy software-defined stateful services where data is created and processed, with the goal of eliminating legacy appliances and host software needed to build the hybrid clouds demanded by modern applications and IT organizations. Futurum’s Ron Westfall explores why the new solution is a clearly differentiated competitive threat to centralized security appliance solutions and could make further inroads by making TCO benefits more tangible, demonstrating portfolio ability to comprehensively administer any switch/server/appliance fabric scenario, and sharpen the advantages and role of the Distributed Services Switch in relation to alternative SmartNIC/DPU implementations.
