Date: 03/20/2017 Length: 2 pages Cost: $25.00

Abstract:
Arista Networks announced a containerized version of its Extensible Operating System (EOS), the software that powers its data center network switches. This containerized software (cEOS) can be run on any Linux distribution. There are two primary outcomes of this software change. First, data center operators who use cEOS-based Arista switches will be able to unify network management with DevOps orchestration. Second, cEOS will run on third-party switch hardware, which makes Arista the latest mainstream manufacturer of network switches to embrace the disaggregation of network hardware and software.
