Apstra Operating System (AOS) is a Distributed Operating System for the data center network. The platform can deploy AOS across a network infrastructure that comprises a wide variety of name-brand or white-box network hardware, decoupling network service design and operations from the lower-level, error-prone, manual workflows required by vendor-specific networking hardware. It reduces time and risk in all aspects of network design and operations.

AOS functionality is designed confidently with built-in industry best practices and operates physical and virtual networks as a single system. With Closed-Loop Telemetry, teams can validate intent continuously on both physical and virtual elements.
The Apstra Operating System (AOS) takes a distributed systems approach, is intent driven, and integrates all aspects of Day 0, 1, and 2+ operations including closed loop, continuous validation. It takes a device-driver approach to supporting a variety of vendor equipment and works in conjunction with the per-box network OS.
