Joint Solution Provides Converged Cloud-Class Networking
SAN FRANCISCO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 31, 2015 — VMworld Booth 2017 – Arista Networks unveiled today at VMworld 2015, HP OneView support for its award-winning programmable network portfolio. The joint solution automates and integrates HP’s Converged Systems of servers and storage with Arista by seamlessly provisioning virtual infrastructure, allowing IT teams to dramatically improve operations while reducing costs and manual errors that cause downtime.
The solution utilizes the programmability of Arista EOS (Extensible Operating System) and its CloudVision suite to leverage HP OneView’s application programming interfaces (APIs) to automatically provision virtual local area network (VLAN) interfaces between HP Virtual Connect and Arista’s programmable platforms with no administrative intervention. In large scale cloud data center deployments, this translates into significant savings in time and operational expense such as deployment, updating, migrating and troubleshooting. Time spent on these processes is reduced from hours or days to minutes.
“HP and Arista’s partnership is off to a successful start with HP winning deals from Arista opportunities. Arista brings a unique expertise to HP’s converged architecture by providing high performance networking for customers in the financial, government, and media and entertainment verticals. HP OneView provides a universal infrastructure management platform that is flexible enough to scale from a single enclosure to the data center level and is optimized for infrastructure teams,” said Ric Lewis, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Converged Systems, HP. “Arista EOS interoperability with HP OneView will enable our joint customers to configure and manage the IT infrastructure in a more automated and efficient way. Customers are seeing high value in the joint solution and have already placed sizable orders in key vertical markets such as financial services and Enterprise SaaS.”
“The programmability of Arista EOS combined with HP OneView offers customers a compelling converged cloud-class network between HP compute, storage and Arista’s programmable networks,” said Mark Smith, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Business Development. “The OneView and VirtualConnect support working together with Arista’s CloudVision, delivers real-time automation and network provisioning for cloud data-centers.”
The joint solution is currently being demonstrated at VMworld 2015 in San Francisco, CA, at booth #2017. Customers will be able to download the Arista EOS extension for HP OneView in CQ4, 2015.
