“We are excited to have the Apstra Operating System® (AOS) as a supported networking platform starting in the Ansible 2.3 release. This allows Ansible to leverage AOS’ open APIs and enables you to more seamlessly integrate AOS within your existing DevOps methodology.”
Jeremy Schulman, Apstra
“Apstra’s vendor-agnostic, intent-based distributed operating system has been designed to help customers reduce operational complexity in their data center network while benefiting from choice in multi-vendor network hardware.”
Brad Casemore, IDC
“Apstra’s solution brings a new approach to managing multi-vendor environments. Its intent-based approach can deliver operational simplicity across the lifecycle of the network by masking the complexity and bring a DevOps feel to network operations.”
Zeus Kerravala, ZK Research
“Apstra can reduce risks, accelerate time to revenue and remove much of the complexity. With each administrator now able to manage more devices, you’ll have the ability to redeploy IT staff onto projects that have been held back for lack of resources, allowing you to accelerate your business.”
Patrick Moorhead, Moor Insights & Strategy
“Operational agility in networking is a critical benefit for IT organizations and is a leading benefit for network automation, cited by 35% of the respondents in a recent ESG Research report. As IT organizations aspire to follow the network architectures of hyper-scale cloud operators, achieving agility at scale will become important.”
Dan Conde, Enterprise Strategy Group
“…David Cheriton has been a quiet force behind the scenes in Silicon Valley for decades, using his brains and bank account to fund vendors…. Now he wants the customers of those suppliers to feel free to shop elsewhere.”
Don Clark, Wall Street Journal
“If Apstra proves to be another exception to the general rule—and we obviously see the potential –it potentially could help these established vendors and the rest of the networking industry by virtue of moderating Public Cloud adoption.”
Paul Silverstein, Cowen
