Arista Networks was founded to deliver software-driven cloud networking for cloud scale, cloud class and hybrid cloud networking environments. Unlike intent-driven methodologies, Arista’s portfolio is based on cognitive and software-driven principles for cloud networking.

Arista, a pioneer and market leader in cloud networking, has emerged as one of the fastest growing companies in the industry. Arista has more recently forayed into the routing arena that offers another multi-billion dollar market opportunity. Arista has disrupted the market with two significant innovations. Arista’s principle invention is an advanced network operating system, Arista EOS® (Extensible Operating System), that is built from ground-up on a standards-based open architecture that delivers high reliability and unique programmability at all system levels, allowing integration with third-party ware to achieve best-of-breed solutions in multi-vendor networks. Topping it, EOS offers a cross-cloud network platform that automates IT workflows or videobased workstreams, provides network-wide visibility, and faster problem resolution.

Arista’s other key innovation is the exclusive use of best-of-breed merchant silicon that enables open standards-based networking with rapid time-to-market. Notably, our merchant silicon family from several vendors, delivers state-of-the-art platforms that provide greater price/performance enabled by technology advances associated with Moore’s Law. In stark contrast, legacy approaches typically have relied on custom ASICs that are tightly coupled with monolithic software – resulting in vendor lock-ins, and proprietary costly choices. The figure below illustrates Arista’s revolutionary approach of universal cloud networking.

Product Offerings

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 web-based 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 the leader in building scalable, high-performance and ultra-low latency cloud networks with low power consumption and a small footprint for modern data center and cloud computing environments. Purpose-built hardware with Arista 7000 and 7500 families Arista EOS and CloudVision, maximize system uptime, stateful fault repair, Advanced Event Management, Zero Touch Provisioning, latency analysis and a fully accessible Linux shell. Arista’s programmable platforms include native support for VMware, network-virtualization and hundreds of applications. Arista’s solutions 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.
