Arista Networks Platform Pricing and License Cost

Dibyendu Das
Director at Apace Systems Corporation
Arista is very expensive. Not everybody is in a position to spend $70,000 to $80,000 for one switch. For our customers that have a budget of $4,000 to $5,000 for one switch fabric, we generally recommend NETGEAR. That is also a very good switch. If somebody wants something cheaper than that, we recommend they go for something else. For a market like India, Africa, and Asia, people always think twice because Arista is expensive compared to the competition. Of course, it's not an apples-to-apples comparison. There are no other products that you can directly compare with Arista. It's the difference between getting a V12 engine and a generic engine. You need to be able to afford a V12. Arista is not for everybody. View full review »
