Deploying EVPN Multihoming in Data Center Networks
The intended audience of this guide is those who are already familiar with EVPN protocol and are planning for, deploying, or maintaining a EVPN based network fabric.
The Overview and Nomenclature sections of this guide are intended to serve as a reference for, and cover in detail, BGP, BGP-EVPN control-plane and VxLAN protocols. It is recommended that the reader has a sound comprehension of these technologies prior to planning and deployment.
The guide describes BGP Based EVPN All-Active Multihoming mechanisms, defined in RFC 7432, allowing network operators to provide resiliency for network system/link faults. If the reader encounters a topic or concept not well understood within the topology and deployment sections, it is recommended that they refer back to the Overview and Nomenclature sections of this document.

Macro-Segmentation Service™ (MSS™) Design & Deployment Guide with Layer-3 Firewalls
In modern data center environments, the concept of ‘secure the perimeter’ has become effectively irrelevant. Due to the distributed nature of applications with a variety of interaction models, whether it is cross cluster communication or application to database queries etc, the East-west traffic patterns are dominating in the data center. It is no longer sufficient to just have a firewall for north-south traffic to protect the data center. Arista Macro-Segmentation Service addresses a growing gap in security deployment models wherein embedded security in the virtualization hypervisor addresses inter-VM communication and physical firewalls address at-depth protection for north-south traffic leaving the data center.
EVPN Deployment Guide
The intended audience of this guide is those who are planning for, deploying, or maintaining a Data Center network leveraging a VXLAN data-plane with an EVPN control-plane.
The Overview and Nomenclature sections of this guide are intended to serve as a reference for, and cover in detail, the VXLAN dataplane and EVPN control-plane protocols. It is recommended that the reader has a sound comprehension of these two technologies prior to planning and deployment.
The content found within the topology and deployment sections assumes that the reader is comfortable with VXLAN and EVPN concepts. As such, detail around configuration, deployment recommendations, and validation will be provided. If the reader encounters a topic or concept not well understood within the topology and deployment sections, it is recommended that they refer back to the Overview and Nomenclature sections of this document.

Arista Networks Macro-Segmentation Service (MSS™) Design & Deployment Guide
Contemporary trends in data center architectures such as mobile applications and IoT present many new possible entry points for security breaches that are not protected by legacy security infrastructure. Installing a firewall at the Internet edge no longer meets the security control requirements for many companies. The complexity of providing secure access, protecting critical data and end-user privacy, and ensuring business continuity in these hyper-dynamic, high-performance compute and data management infrastructures is leading to a demand for a new approach in network and data security. Arista Macro-Segmentation Service addresses a growing gap in security deployment models wherein embedded security in the virtualization hypervisor addresses inter-VM communication and physical firewalls address at-depth protection for north-south traffic leaving the data center.
Layer 2 Leaf & Spine Design and Deployment Guide
The intention of this guide is to provide a systematic and well thought out series of steps to assist the reader with the design and deployment of a Layer 2 Leaf and Spine (L2LS) topology. The example deployment is based on a design which meets a set of prede ned requirements as listed in the System Requirements section of this guide. This guide was written for network engineers, administrators and cloud architects but can be informative to any role dealing with layer 2 networking. A good working knowledge of networking principles is assumed.
