Course Description


The world is moving to the cloud to achieve better agility and economy, following the lead of the cloud titans who have redefined the economics of application delivery during the last decade. Arista’s innovations in cloud networking are making this possible. New, modern applications such as social media and Big Data, new architectures such as dense server virtualization and IP Storage, and the imperative of mobile access to all applications have placed enormous demands on the network infrastructure in data centers.

Network architectures, and the network operating systems that make the cloud possible, need to be fundamentally different from the highly over-subscribed, hierarchical, multi-tiered and costly legacy solutions of the past.

Arista Networks was founded to deliver software-driven cloud networking solutions for these large data center and cloud computing environments. Arista is focused on building 10/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches that redefine network architectures, bring extensibility to networking and dramatically change the price/performance of data center networks.
