SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Arista Networks today announced three new network applications that
integrate with Arista Extensible
Operating System (EOS), the world’s most advanced network operating
system, to simplify IT operations: OpenWorkload, Smart System Upgrade
and Network Telemetry. Leveraging the industry’s only fully programmable
network operating system, Arista EOS, these network applications and
associated partner ecosystems bring a new level of awareness to critical
applications in the data center.
OpenWorkload - simplified networking for virtualized and cloud
environments. Enables a distributed system of network switches to
support truly mobile workloads. Arista and VMware
collaborated to enable Arista EOS switches to seamlessly integrate
with VMware NSX™, the platform for network virtualization, to provide
hardware-based gateway services for non-virtualized servers and
existing VLANs. Arista is also integrating with OpenStack and other
orchestration platforms to provide automated provisioning, stateful
workload portability and total workload visibility.
Smart System Upgrade - reducing the burden caused by network upgrades,
minimizing application downtime, and reducing the risks taken during
critical change controls. Provides a fully customizable suite of
features that tightly couples data center infrastructure partners,
such as technologypartners%23microsoft-tag&esheet=50696730&newsitemid=20130826005273&lan=en-US&anchor=Microsoft&index=3&md5=1d0462d53fd923d68865010b9921534f">Microsoft,
F5 and Palo Alto Networks. Microsoft’s Open Management Infrastructure
(OMI) allows devices to be seamlessly taken out or put into service.
This helps customers stay current on the latest software releases
without unnecessary downtime or systemic outages.
Network Telemetry - a new model for faster troubleshooting from fault
detection to fault isolation. Streams data about network state,
including both underlay and overlay network statistics, to
applications from Splunk, ExtraHop, Corvil and Riverbed. With critical
infrastructure information exposed to the application layer, issues
can be proactively avoided.
The three new Arista EOS applications are:
“Businesses are increasingly deploying network virtualization to
simplify IT and improve the speed of business,” said Milin Desai,
director, product management, VMware. “VMware and Arista are partnering
to integrate Arista EOS-based and VMware NSX™ to enable the same
operational model to be used for both virtual and physical workloads,
resulting in increased efficiency and agility for the data center
