Arista Networks Announced Major Customer Milestone

This week Arista Networks, a provider of Networking Solutions for large data center and computing environments, announced a landmark achievement with regard to customer acquisition.

In a press release, the company announced that it has managed to build up a customer-base consisting of 1000 customers in only three years. The customers come from variety of industry verticals and are of different sizes and types.

With the expansion of clientele in such a short span of time, Arista has established its position as the premiere cloud network infrastructure vendor. By delivering a modern OS, best-of-breed platforms architectures and operational capabilities, the company is enabling IT managers to make informed network decisions that improve their overall application performance.

Arista attributed this success to the widespread popularity of Arista EOS software and data center switches among the global technology companies. Companies such as MIXI, Chicago Board Options Exchange, SingTel and StumbleUpon (News - Alert) have deployed Arista software and switches, which are known in the industry for their leading port density, low power and robust software.

“Arista Networks is becoming the clear choice for companies that want to build public and private cloud computing systems with the best available performance and advanced networking capabilities,” Jayshree Ullal, president and CEO of Arista Networks, proudly claimed in a press release.

SingTel's (News - Alert) Head of Infocomm Services Alvin Kok maintained that thanks to Arista Network, its Alatum cloud services are enabling the businesses to be more agile, reduce their operating costs significantly and operate more productively.

Japjit Tulsi, vice president of Engineering at StumbleUpon acknowledged that the low power consumption and high density of Arista's switches is unmatched by the competition.

Last month, Arista Networks announced that it had been recognized by VMworld and TechTarget's as the Best of VMworld 2011 in the Hardware for Virtualization category.
