Runt Packet – Arista Networks and Data Centre Switching

Greg has asked Doug Gourlay from Arista Networks to get his feet under the workbench and talk about Arista Networks. A reasonably new vendor to community, Arista have a unique approach to building Ethernet switches that are software driven for enhanced data centre management and better operation.

Arista Networks have interested me for some time because their hardware architecture is very different from traditional network equipment, with a focus on their EoS software platform being consistent across the entire product line. We didn’t have time to talk in more detail but either contact Arista to learn more about their product, or get in contact by leaving a comment or use the contact form, and I can schedule more time.

You can check out Arista Networks or follow Doug on Twitter at @dgourlay.
