High Performance and Power Efficient Data Center Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Data centers demand high performance networking solutions. The Arista 7010X offers a purpose built high performance and power efficient solution for high density data center deployments with rich features for modern networks. The Arista 7010X series delivers line rate switching at layer 2 and layer 3 with support for VXLAN and EVPN to enable simple 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.

Offering a choice of two models the 7010X Series supports both AC or DC power. Both models have 48 RJ45 ports for 10/100/1000Mb Ethernet and 4 SFP28 ports for 25G, 10G and 1G uplink connections using a wide range of optics and cables.

Arista EOS and 7010X Series

The 7010X Series enables highly scalable two-tier network designs with MLAG, ECMP and VXLAN 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

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.

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

VXLAN Layer 2 over Layer 3 - Best of Both Worlds
