Big Shift in Data Center Networking with HPE Arista Consulting

AudreyCox

Hewlett Packard Enterprise's partnership with Arista Networks continues to evolve and strengthen, presenting significant opportunities for mutual benefit to both companies, with the potential of impacting the IT infrastructure market.

The relationship began in the summer of 2015 when Arista became an HPE datacenter networking reference architecture partner for converged infrastructure. It was a mutually beneficial arrangement, providing HPE with a stronger datacenter networking offering in conjunction with its in-house server, storage, and management products while providing Arista with access to converged infrastructure sales opportunities that were difficult for it to reach on its own and giving it broader access to regional and country markets.

On March 6, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise expands strategic Arista Networks partnership with the introduction of a host of comprehensive, new HPE Technology Consulting, Support Services, plus the addition of innovative new Arista switching solutions.  These new offerings help you transition to hybrid, software-defined and cloud data centers.

For cloud-centric customers, HPE believes it brings significant differentiation and value in conjunction with Arista's datacenter networking portfolio. Here, HPE points to several factors, including its Pointnext consulting services and global support services, global footprint, HPE OneView, Flexible Capacity, Azure public cloud, HPE Financial Services, HPE converged infrastructure, and HPE+Arista reference architectures.

Accelerate your data center network virtualization with Hewlett-Packard Enterprise to realize the full financial and operating benefits of composable infrastructure and software-defined approaches. With our network virtualization building blocks, speed up IT service delivery and streamline provisioning for increased self-service and great user experiences.

The HPE partnership with Arista Networks becomes increasingly important to meet our customers’ demanding requirements. HPE and Arista share a common vision around the need to deliver secure Hybrid IT solutions based on industry-leading software-defined infrastructure ensuring application availability, performance, and security. Also, helping customers to operate their workloads with speed and agility to grow their business.
