Arista Networks Exec On New Container Software Offensive And Its 'Biggest Fundamental Advantage' Over Cisco

Mark Haranas

Why should Arista customers be excited about your new cEOS?

The primary benefit that this containerized packaging and containerized EOS provides is the ability to seamlessly integrate into our customers' own workflow. The secondary benefit is it helps our customers choose other flexible platform options. Whether it's their own Linux distribution or their own hardware platform, that's where [the] point about white-box, third-party hardware comes in.

The customer use case for this wasn't just to support third-party hardware, it was to integrate more specifically into their workflows and into their DevOps framework. That's what we've really tried to do here.
