Arista is the hotness these days I think? When I worked in datacenter land 
I saw a lot of Arista for switching, some Cisco and Juni for switching. 
Lots of Juniper for routing, with tiny bits of Cisco for routing. One or 
two people had the newer Arista routers but they weren't that common.

We have a few of the Arista 64 port x 100gigabit switches and some of the 
48 x 25 gigabit + 6 x 100gigabit edge switches. They do pretty good so 

Pretty crazy thinking how much data they can theoretically move.
