Arista Offers Subscription-based CloudVision for Workload Orchestration

Arista Networks introduces its CloudVision network-wide approach for workload orchestration and workflow automation.

The idea is to provide a turnkey solution for sharing network-wide switch state data across a cloud and integrating with SDN controllers from Arista's ecosystem partner community.

Arista CloudVision extends the SDN architectural approach across the network for state, topology, monitoring and visibility.

Key attributes of Arista's CloudVision:

  • 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.
  • Provides visibility and troubleshooting for underlay and overlay networks

Arista CloudVision is available now as a software subscription, expanding Arista’s existing software subscription offerings. Pricing starts at $295/device per month.

Arista CloudVision partners include, Dell, F5, HP, Infinera, Microsoft, Palo Alto Networks, Rackspace, Supermicro, and VMware.

“Today more than ever, customers are empowered with software-defined technologies from leaders such as VMware and Arista Networks to gain the agility they need to respond to market opportunities and a rapidly changing business environment,” said Hatem Naguib, Vice President, Networking and Security at VMware. “Through interoperability between our portfolio of software-defined data center offerings and the new Arista CloudVision solution, our mutual customers can move forward with confidence to achieve their IT goals of a more automated, secure, and highly available data center that drives business value.”

“Microsoft and Arista have a long history of partnering on industry-leading data center solutions, and we are committed to helping customers leverage software defined technologies to be more agile and efficient in today’s cloud-first world,” said Mike Schutz, General Manager, Cloud Platform, Microsoft. “CloudVision’s open and programmable underlay make it an ideal complement to Microsoft Cloud Platform solutions, which will enable us to jointly help even more customers transform their datacenter for the cloud era.”
