Arista Offers EOS as Subscription Software

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Arista Networks today announced a disaggregated offering that aligns to new cloud business models. The Arista EOS (Extensible Operating System) platform will now be available as a subscription. With this offering Arista is addressing the business challenges cloud providers face in building out capacity in advance of customer demand.

“The traditional up-front CapEx model is not cost efficient for us as a business as we continue to scale our hybrid cloud infrastructure. Arista's EOS as a subscription offering, for consuming network infrastructure, allows us more flexibility in managing our Capex and Opex spend, allowing Ormuco to continue to provide a competitive and progressive platform for our customers," said Orlando Bayter, CEO of Ormuco Communications.

EOS as a Subscription (EaaS) service is an alternative for procuring today’s integrated offerings. With the current offerings, Arista hardware and EOS software are integrated into a single bundle, mapping to CapEx budget allocations for a perpetual licensing period. The new software subscription-based licensing model offers customers a way to better balance their CapEx and Opex budgets.

General availability for EOS as a Subscription (EaaS) is Q2 CY2015.

EaaS pricing starts at $495/month for select fixed configuration products and includes all EOS advanced feature licenses along with 24x7 A-Care support.
