Arista Networks Announces Next-Generation Telemetry and Analytics Capabilities

Arista Networks announced next-generation telemetry and analytics capabilities designed for modern cloud networks. The new Arista EOS (Extensible Operating System) and CloudVision features provide customers with deep visibility into today's network workloads, workflows, and workstreams on a network-wide basis, accelerating completion of day-to-day tasks and reducing operational costs. Arista EOS is a state-based software architecture built on a foundation called NetDB(TM) (Network Database). With NetDB, Arista EOS devices store all real-time state in one common database and then aggregate that state from all devices into a network-wide view. By collecting every state change on the network, Arista customers will have access to both real-time and historic views of the network in one place and at a level of granularity never before achievable. To leverage this rich network data, the CloudVision platform's analytics engine provides telemetry visualization for this network-wide state. This approach includes the following capabilities and benefits: Instantaneous event-driven streaming of every state change, providing a dramatic improvement in granularity compared to traditional polling models. Complete state visibility from all devices in the network, including configuration, counters, errors, statistics, tables, environmentals, buffer utilization, flow data, and much more. CloudVision Analytics Engine for storing state history and performing trend analysis, event correlation, and automated alerts. The basis for both real-time monitoring and historical forensic event investigation. New Telemetry Apps for the CloudVision Portal, including the Workstream Analytics Viewer, providing simplified visualization of network-wide state for faster time to resolution. An open framework, built on standard RESTful APIs as well as OpenConfig-based infrastructure, providing a point for integration into a variety of partner solutions and customer-specific infrastructure. Expansion of existing EOS Telemetry Tracer capabilities across device, topology, virtual machine, container, and application components.
