Arista actively shares code samples, engages in collaborative forums, and posts works-in-progress to get early insight into use cases.
The Arista 7000 family uses purpose built hardware to meet stringent power and cooling requirements of datacenters, runs Arista EOS to maximize uptime, enable stateful fault repair, give access to Linux shells with latency analysis. Their Ethernet switching solutions include native VMWare support, network-virtualization and hundreds of applications.
