Managing Containers on EOS – container-manager

Containers on EOS Container-based deployments make creating cloud portable applications extremely easy. An application can be written on normal build infrastructure, that in turn can be run on a EOS switch or any Linux device that runs docker run time engine. So the same applications that are ran on a server for microservices can be run on switch with Arista EOS. Since Arista extensible operating system is simply linux (CentOS at this time – 2021) we are able to integrate docker run time engine into the operating system. Containers give us the agility and control to run any application without...

Network CI/CD Part 1 – Building network topologies with Docker and cEOS-lab

Introduction As the networking industry continues riding the DevOps wave and network engineers become more comfortable using automation tools like Ansible and Salt, network still remains the most brittle piece of IT infrastructure. Partially this can be justified by the fact that network underpins all other areas of IT infrastructure stack – compute, storage and virtualisation. However we, as network engineers, have done very little to improve our confidence in networks and until now some of the biggest outages were caused by trivial network configuration mistakes. When software industry was facing similar challenges, the response was to create Continuous Integration (CI) pipelines –...
