Modern Cloud Data Center Technologies – Lunch & Learn with Arista Networks and phoenixNAP


The modern data center is a constantly evolving organism that requires regular adaptation to coexist with modern business demands. At phoenixNAP, we want to showcase, along with our partners Arista Networks, how a data center can transform and support a business.

On September 12, we have the distinct pleasure of welcoming Michael Sparacio, Senior Network Engineer from Arista Networks, to speak at phoenixNAP. Michael has worked on projects with AT&T, Bloomberg, Paypal, GoDaddy, American Express, and several other notable companies.

Together with our Sales Engineer, Bryan Sarpad, Michael will share his experience with complex network projects, specifically focusing on the following topics:

Ethernet VPN in the Data Center – use cases and value of EVPN in today’s data centers
Real-Time Telemetry Streaming – a replacement for SNMP monitoring
The Push for OpenConfig – discussion of OpenConfig and YANG models
As a company that has been pioneering and delivering software-driven cloud networking solutions for over a decade, Arista Networks is an industry leader that continues to drive data center innovation. This is a rare opportunity to hear directly from an expert on some of the hottest topics in the industry.

The lunch and learn will take place at our Phoenix data center and will include two presentations as well as several live demos.

As usual, one of our visitors will have a chance to win a Kindle Paperwhite e-reader!

Seats are limited, so book yours today.
