Arista Networks today announced new EOS (Extensible Operating System) capabilities for advanced data analysis for the SDN (Software Defined Networking) market. Arista’s data analyzer, named Arista DANZ, brings an advanced suite of TAP Aggregation functions integrated into the Arista 7000 series, providing IT departments the data they need at a fraction of the cost of competitive solutions.
Arista DANZ is the first integrated switch-based solution at cloud-scale that provides precise visibility of network conditions without additional hardware infrastructure offering uncompromised performance. With the inherent openness of EOS, Arista interoperates with a broad ecosystem of partners, ensuring fine-grained visibility and traffic monitoring across the network.
“Organizations continue to consolidate data centers, creating increasingly large and complex network environments that are forced to handle massive amounts of traffic. In order to meet or exceed demanding service levels, it is imperative to have visibility into the environment,” said Bob Laliberte, senior analyst at ESG. “Arista leveraged its SDN capabilities in EOS to develop a compelling offering for organizations requiring precise and accurate network analytics reporting.”
Next Generation TAP Aggregation is Here
Arista DANZ’s advanced monitoring capabilities provide strategic and integrated network-wide analytics across leaf and spine-based cloud networks. State-of-the art innovations such as multi-destination mirroring, packet filtering and manipulation, port-mirror source aggregation and forensics, work together to reduce the complexity and cost associated with deploying network analysis at multiple locations at multi gigabit wire speed.
Enhancements to the current Latency Analyzer, LANZ, provide early alerts of application-level congestion and correlations of events. IT operators can now proactively profile their network, applications and cope with microbursts and congestion hot spots before critical business applications are impacted.
Arista DANZ makes next generation tap aggregation a SDN reality. Typically, monitoring the network costs network administrators time and money with slow, expensive probes and external monitoring devices. Arista DANZ is a compelling alternative, offering open API’s tightly coupled with advanced event management (AEM), giving customers tremendous programmability. This enables quick reactions at wire-speed performance without any human intervention.
Arista DANZ is available immediately on the Arista 7150 series as an EOS “Z” license option augmenting OpenFlow support on the Arista 7050 series. Additional examples of Arista SDCN applications are also available on EOS Central.
The company was founded to deliver software defined cloud networking solutions for large data center and computing environments. Arista’s award-winning 10 GbE switches redefine scalability, robustness, and price–performance, with more than one million cloud networking ports being deployed worldwide. At the core of Arista's platform is EOS, the world’s most advanced network operating system. Arista Networks products are available worldwide through distribution partners, systems integrators and resellers.

As the world moves towards more DevOps and microservices, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, NetFlix and so on, is at the heart of Cloud Foundry - a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is IaaS agnostic and supports vCloud, OpenStack and AWS. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Raghavan "Rags" Srinivas, an Architect/Developer Evangeli...

There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
