Arista 7010 Series

Overview

 

High Performance and Power Efficient Data Center Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Data centers demand high performance networking solutions. The Arista 7010T offers a purpose built high performance and power efficient solution for high density data center deployments. The Arista 7010T series delivers line rate switching at layer 2 and layer 3 to enable simpler network designs for data centers that lowers the network capital and operational expenses. When used in conjunction with the Arista 7000 series of fixed and modular switches it allows networks to scale out in a high performance two-tier network that provides predictable and consistent application performance.

Arista EOS and 7010 Series

The 7010 Series enable highly scalable two-tier network designs with MLAG and ECMP technologies, open protocols and a comprehensive set of advanced monitoring and provisioning features to meet the demands of high performance networks.

MLAG – All Active Multipath for Layer 2

  • Standards based protocol (LACP)
  • Simplified or eliminates Spanning Tree topology
  • Simple to understand and easy to engineer traffic
  • ISSU for fully independent upgrades of MLAG members

ECMP – All Active Multipath for Layer 3

  • Standards based protocol (OSPF, BGP, ISIS)
  • Eliminates L2 for exceptional scalability and fault tolerance
  • Exceptional scale with consistent performance in 2 tiers

IPv4 and IPv6 Routing Support

  • Comprehensive L2 and L3 forwarding table resources for more design choice
  • IPv4 and IPv6 Layer 3 routing (OSPF, BGP, ISIS and PIM), enabling highly resilient multi-path networks.

Advanced Monitoring and Provisioning

  • ZTP fully automates network and server provisioning using standards based protocols and scripting tools
  • Advanced Event Management suite (AEM)
  • eAPI provides an open interface to EOS to allow Netops to build robust workflow automation
  • OpenStack Neutron Support for integrated orchestration
  • CloudVision for a topology agnostic single point of management
  • VMTracer integration with VMWare to simplify monitoring of physical and virtualized environments
