Synnex resellers will have access to the entire Arista Networks cognitive cloud networking portfolio. Gartner recently placed Arista among leaders in its Magic Quadrant for data center networking. The research organization recommended that large enterprises should include Arista on their shortlists for all data-center networking opportunities globally. At the same time, Gartner expressed concern about Arista’s lack of expertise in small and midmarket environments, particularly outside of North America and Europe.

“We are pleased to work with Synnex to expand our channel reach as we continue to invest in our data center and campus networking solutions,” said Ed Chapman, vice president of business development, strategic alliances and worldwide channel sales at Arista Networks. “Their expertise in secure networking, paired with their deep level of service and support offerings, will help resellers take their business to new heights.”
