Arista Partner Program

Arista’s Channel Partner Program, designed for Resellers and Systems Integrators, rewards partners with lucrative financial outcomes commensurate with their level of investment in building expertise and core competencies around the Arista solution set. In addition to the substantial resell opportunity related to the $35B TAM that Arista serves, we encourage our partners to establish a high-value services practice which we’ll help enable by providing Arista-certified service delivery training. 

The Program offers three (3) partnership levels. All new partners are on-boarded as AUTHORIZED and operate under InDirect-Supply arrangements with Arista Distributors. As engagement activities with Arista accelerate and we collectively experience mutual success in collaboration, partners are welcome to up-level to ELITE and realize additional commercial benefits. Our highest partnership level, ELITEPLUS, is by-invitation-only, and reserved for solution providers with global operations who are committed to executing a strategic GTM initiative with Arista.
