ANET uses standard Linux as its underlying operating system, providing customers with access to all Linux operating system facilities.

EOS has a highly modular architecture, which allows ANET to prevent network outages in deployments of its cloud networking solutions.
This architecture also allows ANET to rapidly develop new features and protocols without compromising the quality of the existing code base.
Because all of its switching products are powered by the same binary image of EOS, ANET is able to deliver these new innovations to its entire installed base with minimal disruption.
