Arista Networks pioneered software-driven, cognitive cloud networking for large-scale datacenter and campus environments. Arista's award-winning platforms, ranging in Ethernet speeds from 10 to 400 gigabits per second, redefine scalability, agility and resilience. Arista has shipped more than 20 million cloud networking ports worldwide with CloudVision and EOS, an advanced network operating system. Committed to open standards, Arista is a founding member of the 25/50G consortium. Arista Networks products are available worldwide directly and through partners.
At the core of Arista's platform is the Extensible Operating System (EOS™), a ground-breaking network operating system with single-image consistency across hardware platforms, and modern core architecture enabling in-service upgrades and application extensibility.
Gartner Magic Quadrant
Arista Networks Recognized by Gartner as a Leader in its 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Networking
Arista EOS, is the most advanced network operating system to enable open third party development. The award-winning software is built upon a stable, open source Linux core with a central state-oriented database that makes EOS inherently self-healing, in-service upgradeable and extremely robust. Arista EOS Central offers access to development tools, scripting examples, and support to deliver real-world solutions that bridge the gap between what vendors build and what users want. Arista actively shares code samples, engages in collaborative forums, and posts works in progress to get early insight into use cases.
Arista Networks is a leader in building scalable, high-performance and ultra-low latency cloud networks with low power consumption and a small footprint for modern datacenter and campus environments. Purpose-built hardware with Arista 7000 family and Arista EOS, maximize system uptime, stateful fault repair, Advanced Event Management, Zero Touch Provisioning, latency analysis and a fully accessible Linux shell. Arista's Ethernet switching solutions include native support for VMware, network-virtualization and hundreds of applications. Arista's hardware platforms are designed to meet the stringent power and cooling requirements of today's most demanding data centers, proven advantages already in use in many of the largest cloud data centers around the world.
Software Driven Cloud Networking
Arista Networks has championed the guiding cloud principles of cloud leaders with network designs serving private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud, enterprise and high-performance network use cases. These include the use of open APIs, cloud automation features, and self service provisioning and deployment – coupled with an open approach to network integration, customer programmability, and simplified standards-based deployment architectures.
Arista’s Universal Cloud Network (UCN) delivers these common cloud principles for simplified networking topologies and architectures across use-cases. As siloed Places-In-the-Network (PINs) are normalized to become standardized Places-In-the-Cloud (PICs), Arista’s UCN provides a consistent operational experience and simplifies the model for customers to extend their data center networking practices to many other use-cases.
Proliferation of cloud architectures and principles are transforming the traditional routing landscape. New business models around Service Provider NFV, Cloud WAN, Content Edge and data center interconnect (DCI) are disrupting the traditional approaches to networking.
Arista's Routing solution applies the cloud networking principles of "scale-out, simplify, software-driven networking" beyond the data center to routing use-cases. These solutions are based on Arista’s 7280R Universal Leaf and 7500R Universal Spine platforms, powered by Arista EOS® and CloudVision®. Customers can leverage these platforms for roles that require high performance Routing, combined with high port density and deep buffers, integrated DWDM with wirespeed MACSec encryption and cloud automation, which traditional Routers are unable to offer. With the Arista FlexRoute™ engine in Arista's R-series portfolio, customers can now architect, transform and modernize their Routing layer for different applications. Additionally, with the advanced telemetry solutions along with security at scale, delivered with Arista AlgoMatch, customers can avail highest visibility and security for their networks.
