Arista Networks Inc. Introduces its Newest Member to its Software Defined Cloud Network
Nov 4 13
Arista Networks, Inc. introduced its newest member to its software defined cloud network: the Arista 7000 X Series with the Arista 7300 and Arista 7250 delivering a resilient architecture, enhanced programmability, control of virtualized networks, improved power efficiency, and price/performance optimized for universal cloud and data center deployments. Powered by Arista EOS(R) the Arista 7000 X Series optimizes costs, automates provisioning, and builds more reliable scale-out architectures endorsed by an open ecosystem of partners. Complementing Arista's pioneering two-tier leaf-spine designs based around Arista's 7500E and 7x50 Series, customers can simplify cabling, consolidate servers, migrate between virtual to physical networks and control IP storage as well as big data and business applications with a Spline network. By collapsing the leaf and spine together into a single-tier network for performance and latency sensitive cloud applications, operating and capital asset costs are lowered by 40%. This brings deterministic performance for up to 2000 hosts in one cluster. Newer small form factor core devices can enable network managers to reduce capital costs by 30% to 70%, and save 30% or more on operations expenses, compared with chassis-based switches. The Arista 7300 and 7250X series achieve new levels of performance and density with resilient control planes at an optimized and linear cost model for the next-generation data center creating a new deployment model: the Spline Network. The Arista 7300 is comprised of three chassis: the Arista 7304, 7308 and 7316 with 4, 8 and 16 line card slots respectively. All three share a common resilient architecture that scales up to 512 ports of 40GbE or 2,048 ports of 10GbE, with wirespeed performance of 40Tbps (terabits per second) of throughput. X Series line card modules for the Arista 7300 include 10GBASE-T, SFP and QSFP configurations. Front-to-rear and rear-to-front airflow options along with platinum rated power supplies allow for improved efficiency and middle-of-row Spline configurations. Two Arista 7316 Series systems can fit in a single 42RU rack supporting over 4000 10GbE ports. With power consumption under 3W per 10GbE port and latency under 2 microseconds, a pair of 7300 series switches replaces two Catalyst 6509Es with more than ten times the scale, throughput, latency improvement and power efficiency. Complementing the 7300X series, the Arista 7250X Series is a high density solution delivering 64 ports of wire-speed 40GbE or up to 256 Ports of 10GbE in a compact and power efficient two rack unit fixed form factor with redundant and hot-swap power supplies and fan modules. Key features on the 7300X and 7250X Series: Unified Forwarding Table: The Layer 2 MAC table and Layer 3 routing tables dynamically expand based on the application to support up to 288K MAC entries, or 144K routes. New Duplex Fiber 40GbE Optics: Support for Arista's LRL4 QSFP optics requiring a single pair of single mode fiber, reducing the fiber requirements by 75% compared to existing choices. Network Telemetry: Real-time visibility into network congestion, buffer management and industry-standard sFlow support for traffic analysis. Physical-Virtual-Cloud Network: Arista VMTracer provisioning and native VXLAN support, workload mobility and migration at wire speed across multiple hypervisors.
Arista Networks, Inc. Introduces Next Generation 7050X Products
Oct 2 13
Arista Networks, Inc. announced two new additions to the Arista 7000 family of switches, offering new levels of density, performance and scalability. The new Arista EOS applications, Path Tracer and MapReduce Tracer, give customers deeper visibility for big data and cloud network applications while maintaining the open, standards-based, consistency for which Arista EOS is known. The Arista 7050QX-32 and 7050SX-128 offer 32 x 40GbE or 96 x 10GbE and 8 x 40GbE wire speed ports respectively. The compact 1 or 2 Rack unit form-factor, ultra low-latency, VXLAN and NVGRE capability, and high power efficiency make the 7050X ideal leaf switches for high-density compute and storage racks. The 32 x 40 GbE ports or 96 x 10 GbE and 8 x 40GbE port configurations make the 7050X ideal leaf switches for high-density server and storage racks, providing ultra-low latency and support for VXLAN. Network Tracers Offer Advanced Telemetry: The new tracers complement existing health and network virtualization offerings for a full suite of Arista EOS Network Telemetry applications. Path Tracer provides end-to-end visibility into Layer 3 ECMP (equal cost multi-path routing) networks, proactively detecting, logging and reacting to gathered information. Arista EOS MapReduce Tracer provides correlation between big data applications and directly connected nodes to assist with discovery, troubleshooting and performance tuning of the network. With Arista EOS software, customers and partners have access to open controller APIs. This controller-friendly approach gives Arista customers a full ecosystem of SDN (software defined-network) partners to work with in building programmable, self-healing networks. The Arista 7050X Series of switches builds on the toolsets provided by Arista Network Tracers and encapsulation technologies such as VXLAN, to enable designs based on the Arista Universal Network Architecture for physical and virtual workloads. Platform Diversity and Scale: This latest introduction expands the portfolio of switches available with consistent Arista EOS in the form of a single binary image across all products, greatly simplifying network administration. The Arista 7050X Series supports a flexible combination of 10GbE and 40GbE in a highly compact form factor. When used in conjunction with the Arista 7000 series of fixed and modular switches, it allows networks to scale to over 100,000 10 GbE servers in a low latency leaf and spine network that provides predictable, consistent application performance and monitoring. The flexibility of L2 and L3 multipath design options, combined with support for open standards, provides maximum flexibility, scalability, and network wide virtualization. Pricing and Availability: All new products are orderable now. The 7050QX-32 and 7050SX-128 are available immediately. Pricing starts at under $1500 per 40GbE port. Network Tracers are part of the EOS monitoring feature licenses available from under $2,000.
