Arista specializes in networking equipment for big cloud deployments by service providers, enterprises and a market segment Arista calls the “cloud titans,” including Microsoft Corp., which is one of Arista’s biggest customers. These companies are leading implementers of New IP networks.
“That’s what we do. We do cloud,” Jeff Raymond, VP EOS product management and services, tells Light Reading.
That focus differentiates Arista from arch-competitor Cisco Systems Inc., which is a complete networking solution provider, including routers, switches, data center rack-mounted servers, collaboration applications, security services and all.
