Date: Tue, 02/01/2011 - 19:18
Arista Networks, a US based company and the leader in 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches for Cloud Networking, announced the opening of an engineering centre in India
The Bangalore R&D centre will focus on expanding Arista’s Extensible Operating System (EOS) which is purpose-built for large data centre and cloud scale deployments. Arista Networks is planning to grow the Arista Bangalore R&D centre to fifty engineers in the next two years, selecting exceptional high quality technical talent from premier engineering institutions and companies.
The presence in India will allow Arista Networks to expand global software development capabilities across three continents, Asia, Europe (UK) and North America (California). Arista’s cloud networking approach offers a balanced trade-off between closed networking platforms of today and new open development environments of the 21st century. The killer applications driving network deployments are no longer email; instead social networking such as Facebook, video delivery, search applications, Hadoop clusters and financial algorithmic trading running on private or public cloud networks are driving significant bandwidth, latency, and automation requirements. Backed with a thousand man-years of development and software expertise, Arista has built a ground-up networking OS purpose-built for clouds and data centres. EOS solves important pain points in today’s network deployments offering consistent high levels of scalability, provisioning and resilience.
Jayshree Ullal, president & CEO Arista Networks states, “Arista Networks' success lies in building innovative, cost effective, cloud networking solutions. This has been possible due to our world-class engineering team of highly experienced veterans from leading networking and server companies. We see tremendous opportunities in India for us and our partners”
The Arista India R&D centre will be based in Koramangala, Bangalore led by Amod Dani, Director of Engineering, reporting into US based Ken Duda, Arista’s Vice President of Software Engineering. Arista has demonstrated a strong base of over 500 Customers worldwide in just two years across a broad range of industry segments including capital markets, scientific computing, defence, carrier/mobility, media and entertainment, and cloud computing.
