This is a quick post to let you know that we recently released a case study with Cisco.

Criteo has been using Cisco gear since the early days. Last year, we decided to upgrade the network access layer in all our datacenters (7 total, in Europe, the US and Japan). Of course, it’s good practice to refresh hardware every now and then, but what we were really after was scaling our platforms and improving performance, especially for our Hadoop/HPC applications. Once again, we trusted Cisco and deployed the Nexus range (2248TP-E/5548/7000). All we can say is that it did the job pretty well 🙂
