He says Arista is in a race to zero latency. That is what's needed in
high-frequency financial trading where "every micro-second counts", he
says.


Hell guys - we can do better.
We've got some serious physics talent on this list.
Zero-latency for making more money on the exchanges than the other
brokers?
Heck what we need is  less than zero latency. We need switches which
anticipate what
the next packets are, and have already sent them on to the outgoing
port.
A bit of time travel - shouldn't be too hard for this list now should
it?
