Designed for large virtualized and cloud networks the Arista 7500 Series modular switches are the industry’s highest performance data center switches. They combine scalable L2 and L3 features with advanced features for network monitoring, precision timing, VXLAN network virtualization and extensive hardware resources.
High Performance System
Rich Feature Sets
The 7500E Series modules enable highly scalable two-tier network designs with MLAG, ECMP and VXLAN technologies.
Flat Layer-2 MLAG Spine - All Active Multipathing
ECMP - All Active Multipath for Layer 3
VXLAN - Layer 2 over Layer 3 - Best of both worlds
The Arista 7500E Series is designed with the latest in switching silicon and software.
The unique fabric and deep buffer virtual output queue (VOQ) architecture eliminates head-of-line (HOL) blocking and virtually eliminates packet drops even in the most congested network scenarios. The Arista 7500 can handle the most demanding data center requirements with ease, including mixed traffic loads of real-time, multicast, and storage traffic.
Designed for continuous operations with system wide monitoring of hardware and software components, simple serviceability and provisioning to prevent single points of failure.
The hardware architecture supports high-availability with hot-swap of all components with redundant supervisors, power supplies, fabric and cooling modules.
High Performance 10/40/100Gb Ethernet Spine
High Performance Fabric Modules
The Arista 7500 Series modular switches are the industry’s highest performance data center switches, available in a compact 7RU (4-slot) or 11RU (8-slot) they combine scalable L2 and L3 forwarding and traffic management with advanced features for network monitoring, precision timing, and network virtualization to deliver deterministic network performance for mission critical data centers, cloud computing, enterprise and HPC environments.
The Arista 7508 and 7504 systems can be fully populated with up to eight and four linecards respectively.
