We performed a comparison between Arista Networks Platform and Juniper Ethernet Switches based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two Ethernet Switches solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The most valuable features of the Arista Networks Platform are the EVPN and VXLAN. It has comprehensive features."
"Arista Networks Platform is comfortable, easy to deploy, and easy to manage, with non-blocking technology. Additionally, it has a useful CloudVision platform and automation capabilities."
"The solution has good load latency. They're the market leader in this aspect right now."
"The solution is very stable."
"The configuration capabilities were good."
"It's an extremely reliable platform for the network switches we use."
"It is very stable. It has good hardware and very stable code. It provides good value for its price. They are a very lean type of organization, so they are very responsive, and they're able to focus more on their platform versus having multiple products out there."
"Arista Networks Platform offers straightforward deployment, and has good features. Support for the platform is also good."
"The most valuable feature is switching on our network."
"I like the simplicity of it."
"The combination of hardware and software makes it a very good solution. It is a modern protocol that they have supported in the switches. The solution has good performance."
"Both Juniper and Cisco switches are interoperable."
"Juniper switches are very good with MPLS."
"The thing that sets Juniper apart from most switches is that when you're in the command line and you make a configuration change, you just write the command and then say "commit confirmed minutes". For example, I'm configuring a switch here in my office, which is five miles away, and I say, "commit confirmed 5". If I can't get back to the interface within five minutes to be able to make sure the switch came up, it rolls back to the previous configuration. This way I do not get locked out, or the switch doesn't get messed up because of the incorrect configuration. That's an automatic feature, which is pretty slick. I haven't seen that feature with other vendors that I've worked with. That's probably my most favorite feature."
"The most valuable feature is that Juniper is multiple kernels, so there's isolation, which means you won't get a process that runs away, creating problems across the whole platform."
"It is easy to configure, and there are three routing switches."
"The overall price of the Arista Networks Platform is expensive. It should be reduced."
"Arista Networks Platform should focus on improving the compatibility or integration with Cisco solutions."
"Its price can be better."
"The solution needs to accommodate new features."
"An area for improvement in Arista Networks Platform is its integration, e.g. it needs to have more integration with its new products. Incorporating more security and cloud is also another area for improvement in the platform."
"The solution is quite expensive. One of the negative aspects of it is the pricing."
"The solution needs to improve their product range."
"The stability of this solution needs to be improved as part of the next upgrade."
"Wireless and monitoring definitely could be improved."
"The updates are constantly breaking."
"We are not very pleased with their performance."
"The difficulty of the installation of Juniper Ethernet Switches depends on the environment it is being implemented in. It is fairly straightforward in terms of being able to source the technical information as we need it. However, this process could improve."
"All Juniper documentation is terrible."
"Juniper Ethernet Switches would be improved by upgrading the uplink port in EX2300 categories service from 10G to 25G."
"Its distribution channel and the ease of availability should be improved."
"Juniper Ethernet Switches' operating systems get corrupted when the power fails. They have to improve this issue. I may have to use a newer version."
