Greg Ferro of EtherealMind comments:
Arista EOS already runs in VMs and used by customers for testing and software development of automation tools. Today, Arista chooses to packages their software with hardware, but recently Juniper has fully embraced whitebox with the OCX1100 switch which shows that the actual hardware matters less than years gone by (previous Ethernet switches in the EX-series are less obvious whitebox products).
Greg takes a serious look at whether or not Arista’s EOS could ever run on non-Arista platforms. And does some mental gymnastics about Cisco and their plans for whitebox.
