Arista Support for Azure Stack
The Arista vEOS Router is a virtual network appliance empowering customers to share the same connectivity platform, running identically in both Azure Public Cloud and on premises Azure Stack as well as other major cloud platforms. This approach provides a consistent and familiar operational experience via its industry-standard Command Line Interface (CLI), open APIs, value added-extensions, cloud-grade routing, telemetry, and orchestration tools in both on-premises and public cloud locations as well as across multiple clouds. Arista vEOS Router provides improved scaling and visibility for enterprise customers adopting hybrid cloud deployment architectures with a single-image routing stack.
By providing a single binary image across public and private clouds, Arista vEOS Router makes it easy to manage, troubleshoot and configure network connectivity across the cloud with centralized policy, provisioning and monitoring. Further, it becomes cost-effective to deploy a proven scalable leaf and spine topology within the public cloud with high availability and routing scale to hundreds of thousands of end-points.
For customers that already have an Azure public cloud subscription, the vEOS Router can now be easily added to their Azure Stack environments by simply syndicating a vEOS Router image to their Azure Stack platforms via the Azure Marketplace. Each instance of vEOS Router supports a full range of EOS features.
Arista Any Cloud Platform Continues to Expand
The Arista Any Cloud platform is designed to support any public or hybrid cloud environment, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), the Microsoft Azure public cloud platform, Microsoft Azure Stack, Google Cloud Platform and other public clouds. It is based on Arista EOS (Extensible Operating System), which provides the core of all Arista cloud networking solutions for next-generation datacenters and cloud networks.
With the Arista Any Cloud platform, enterprise customers can now deploy a reliable and secure multi-cloud experience with a common cloud networking design approach across all of the places in the cloud. This enables IT organizations to harness dispersed cloud resources anywhere for better availability of services and applications across any cloud, any workload and any location. Support in each cloud provider environment is coupled with validation and registration of these solutions in the cloud marketplace infrastructure provided by each cloud provider, thus making deployment simple for the enterprise customer.
