In partnership with Arista Networks, I am delivering a sponsored webinar on Arista EOS Software Architecture.
In this Webinar, the Packet Pushers will be interviewing developers and engineers from Arista and talking about hardcore network operating system architecture, designing a network OS for the Cloud, and how to build features that make network operators lives easier.
We will be deep diving into the features, functions and whizbang bits that make you go “you can do that !!”
We will have the developers of EOS on hand to talk with Greg about the how, why and what crazy ideas they have for delivering features you possibly haven’t thought of.
Panelist / Guests
Ken Duda, Founder and head of our software engineering team at Arista.
Hugh Holbrook – Hugh authored PIM-SM and did a bunch of high impact multicast work. He is kind of the moral compass in our SW team.
Adam Sweeney, Director of Software Engineering
And me, Greg Ferro in my other role as the host of the Packet Pushers Podcast will be leading the conversation and trying to sound intelligent.
Arista is doing things differently. They aren’t focussing on just speeds, ports and density – they are developing, and delivering a whole bunch of software features. In previous discussions with Doug Gourlay, it seems clear that Arista have decided to differentiate their EOS operating system by adding a wide range of support for Linux based tools. This matters. In the past the management and administration of the devices was SNMP or CLI. And writing CLI scripts with Expect is difficult and unreliable because the CLI changes all the time.
Arista is preparing, developing and already delivered a number of unique features in their EOS architecture, some relevant to very large data centers or cloudy networks, and other relevant to VMware such as VMTracer.
So lets ask questions on Arista’s approach to the OS architecture, feature development and how they are going to make a difference to so-called Cloud networks.
Join me, we will get nerdy. We’ve got serious technical people joining, and it’s not a marketing putz.
Because Too Much Networking would NEVER be Enough.
