SANTA CLARA, Calif.,–May 23, 2016 — Arista Networks, a leading provider of cloud networking solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the 16 May 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Networking.
“We consider our positioning in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant by Gartner, validation of continued market acceptance of our software driven cloud networking solutions,” said Mark Foss, Senior Vice President of Global Operations and Marketing at Arista Networks. “Innovations over the past year with the introduction of NetDB™, CloudVision®, Macro Segmentation Services security and the Arista 7500R Series Universal Spine, truly revolutionize the way customers design cloud scale service provider and next generation data centers.”
The data center (DC) networking solutions covered in the Gartner research provide logical and/or physical network connectivity within enterprise data centers. Organizations’ data center networking requirements have continued to evolve rapidly after a period of architectural stability that lasted more than 15 years. Over the past two years, organizations have increasingly adopted a two-tier fat-tree architecture that delivers high cross-sectional bandwidth for east-west traffic while increasing flexibility and reducing cost.
