Arista Networks, Inc Introduces CloudVision Network-Wide Cloud Automation

Arista Networks, Inc. announced CloudVision, a network-wide approach for workload orchestration and workflow automation delivering a turnkey solution for cloud networking. EOS with programmable interfaces, publish-subscribe state separation, resilient fault containment and self-healing attributes. CloudVision extends the same architectural approach across the network for state, topology, monitoring and visibility. This enables enterprises to move to cloud-class automation without needing any significant internal development. CloudVision’s abstraction of the physical network to this broader, network-wide perspective allows for a more efficient approach for several operational use-cases: Centralized representation of distributed network state, allowing for a single point of integration and network-wide visibility and analytics, Controller agnostic support for physical and virtual workload orchestration through open APIs such as OVSDB, JSON and OpenStack plugins, Turn-key workflow automation for zero touch provisioning, configuration management and network-wide upgrades and rollback, Compliance dashboard for security, audit and patch management, Real-time Streaming for telemetry and network analytics, a modern approach to replace legacy polling per device and Provides visibility and troubleshooting for underlay and overlay networks.
