HP and Arista Offer Data Center Reference Architectures

HP announced a new partnership with Arista Networks to provide verified reference architectures for data centers.


The HP Converged Architecture with Arista is designed to support private, public and hybrid cloud applications across compute and storage, including all-flash solutions with HP 3PAR StoreServ. The companies said their open and flexible solutions deliver simplified provisioning and ongoing maintenance, via the application of Arista Extensible Operating System (EOS) and network programmable platforms, with HP OneView integration at its core.

“The joint reference architectures from HP and Arista will deliver a dramatically simplified path to convergence and cloud-efficiency for our joint customers,” said Ed Chapman, vice president of business development and alliances, Arista Networks, Inc. “This will allow customers to rapidly realize the benefits of a converged infrastructure to accelerate their business and improve time to value while remaining flexible for future business needs.”

In addition, HP announced enhancements to its OneView 2.0 management platform, which unifies processes, user interfaces (UI’s) and the application programming interfaces (APIs) across HP server, storage, and Virtual Connect networking devices. The enhancements include new server automation tools for defining firmware and driver baselines as well as server, LAN and SAN settings in one place and consistently provision or update those settings multiple times. Additionally, new profile mobility makes it possible to migrate and recover of workloads across server platform types, configurations, and generations.
