Celebrating One Million Ports of Software Defined Cloud Networking and Introducing the Arista Data Analyzer (DANZ)

For the past 5 years, Arista has been setting the agenda for software defined cloud networking. We are not addressing the legacy enterprise market for general-purpose applications. Instead our innovative customers expect us to enable high performance transactions and analytics with cloud-scale, self-healing resilience, programmability, precision data analysis and network wide virtualization, while radically reducing capex and opex. I am especially proud to celebrate a key measure of our success - we have now shipped our first one million ports for this new software-defined cloud-networking era.

The massive cloud-scale of these new networks has also created challenges in the areas of traffic visibility and the attendant analysis needed to diagnose problems for the terabits of data carried by these networks. Troubleshooting applications, assuring performance, and securing cloud networks are collectively impossible with legacy methods. I believe the key is innovating and building a modern network with programmability and openness - avoiding becoming a victim of old legacy and expensive habits. Arista EOS enables this through the power of SDN.

Today we are announcing another breakthrough SDN differentiator, Arista Data ANalyZer (DANZ). It analyzes data and network behavior, while providing detailed capture and accounting of traffic for forensic analysis as part of our Software Defined Cloud Networking (SDCN) strategy.
