Apstra® was founded by experts in networking (Arista, Juniper), distributed systems and automation (VMware, Google). We’ve built a solution to massively reduce network service delivery time, risks of failing compliance, TCO, and the number and duration of human-induced outages.

Apstra has pioneered and is leading the networking industry towards “Autonomous Network”, or “Self-Operating Network™: a network that configures itself, fixes itself, and defends itself.


Apstra Operating System (AOS™) 2.0 provides an abstraction layer that separates network design and operational tools from the ecosystem of network hardware options, enabling customers to leverage any vendor or hardware platform without having to change the management system.
