There’s a monumental shift happening in the networking space. The significant innovation that servers and storage have enjoyed for years has finally arrived to the network. With over 10 years of development, and thousands of production deployments, Arista Networks is ushering in a new era of programmability, visibility, and interoperability to data center and enterprise switching.
At the heart of the Arista strategy is Arista's Extensible Operating System. EOS is built and run
on an unmodified Linux Kernel, and is enabled by the best hardware available to exceed your application performance demands. In addition to leveraging the power of Linux, Arista’s EOS is instantly familiar in command line and syntax to classically trained network operators. In other words…they can jump on an Arista switch and configure it day one. Bringing together the power of EOS and openness of Linux makes Arista the most unifying switching and routing platform in networking…and a safe investment.
Arista Networks founding principle is to deliver software-driven cloud networking solutions for IP based Broadcast facilities, large data center and computing environments. Arista’s award-winning 10/40/100GbE switches redefine scalability, robustness, and price–performance. At the core of Arista’s platform is Arista's Extensible Operating System (EOS), an advanced network operating system. Arista's EOS is a fully programmable and highly modular, Linux-based network operation system, using familiar industry standard CLI and runs a single binary software image across the Arista switching family. Architected for resiliency and programmability, EOS has a unique multi-process state sharing architecture that separates state information and packet forwarding from protocol processing and application logic.
Arista offers a broad portfolio of Gigabit Ethernet solutions including 1/10/40GbE and 100GbE large buffer switches that redefine network architectures, bring automation to the network, and dramatically change the price/performance of enterprise data center networks. Arista switches provide visibility and monitoring tools simply not available from other switching platforms.
