Re: Open Networking
They don't disaggregate EOS because they believe there is more money to be made keeping it tightly coupled with their own hardware. They say they don't see the customer demand for doing it yet.

Open Networking
"The heart of a white box is software," Ullal said. 

So why doesn't Arista walk the walk and disaggregate EOS?  I would be happy to run that on some Dell HW.

Yes but
Ullal is right that white boxes require software -- and integration, too. But that doesn't mean network operators will necessarily go to Arista or another proprietary software vendor for that. Open source alternatives are emerging, and companies such as Red Hat will happily do the integration and customization for network operators that don't want to take it on themselves.
