Score 9 out of 10

To be honest, we didn't really look very hard at any other network switch providers since we are already a heavy Cisco shop. Cisco has treated us well over the years by providing solid support, excellent reliability, and advanced security options that are top notch. One of the companies that we acquired did have a pair of Arista 7000 switches, so we did have to manage those for 18 months during the transition off of their network. The CLI and GUI on the Arista were pretty painful to use.
