Arista 7060X and 7260X Series Introduction

The Arista 7060X and 7260X Series are the benchmark for performance, scale and power efficiency in fixed configuration data center switches. The expansion of next generation applications for machine learning and artificial intelligence to support a broad spectrum of cloud applications and intelligent services is driving the evolution of scale-out networks. The growth in datacenter performance is leading to the widespread adoption of 25G, 50G and 100G servers and accelerating the need for dense 400G and 100G networking solutions that accommodate a broad range of interface speeds. The Arista 7060X and 7260X Series extends Arista’s industry leading fixed configurations with the highest performance, scalability, density and innovative features optimized for software driven cloud networking.

7060X and 7260X Deployment Flexibility

The Arista 7060X and 7260X portfolio of 1RU and 2RU data center switches, deliver a rich choice of interface speed and density allowing leaf-spine networks to seamlessly migrate from 10G/40G to 25G/100G and 200G/400G. The 7060X and 7260X powered by Arista EOS, the worlds most advanced network operating system, are available in a range of models:

  • 7060X4

    — 400G and 100G with a choice of OSFP & QSFP-DD ports
  • 7060CX and 7060CX2

    —10/25G and 40/100G with QSFP100 ports
  • 7260CX and 7260CX3

    — 40/100G connectivity with QSFP100 ports
  • 7060SX2

    — 10/25G SFP25 and QSFP100 for 100G
  • 7260QX

    — 40G connectivity with QSFP+ ports
Each of the 7060X and 7260X models offers high performance, rich features and advanced provisioning and monitoring tools that provide flexibility in building scalable leaf and spine designs. The flexibility combined with a consistent architecture offered by the 7060X and 7260X series ensures suitability for a variety of deployment scenarios. The following are a selection of use cases:

  • Hyper-scale cloud

    — for large scale multi-tier networks
  • Dense top-of-rack

    — for server racks with 1/10G, 25G to 100G systems
  • High performance storage

    — NFS and NVMe high performance systems
  • Grid / HPC

    — designs requiring cost effective and power efficient systems to enable non-blocking or minimal over-subscription for servers
  • Leaf-Spine

    — open standards based L2 and L3 with monitoring and visibility features — VM Tracer, LANZ, sFlow and Tracers
  • 100G Scale Out Designs

    — Small to medium locations requiring power efficiency and high density compact systems
  • Software Defined Networking

    — with support for CloudVision, VXLAN, OpenFlow, DirectFlow and eAPI
  • ECMP designs up to 128-way

    — cost-effective multi-pathing using open protocols and fixed configuration spine switches
  • High Performance Trading

    — consistent low latency with higher speed servers results in lower end to end latency

Arista EOS

Arista EOS is a modular switch operating system with a unique state sharing architecture that cleanly separates switch state from protocol processing and application logic. Built on top of a standard Linux kernel, all EOS processes run in their own protected memory space and exchange state through an in-memory database. This multi-process state sharing architecture provides the foundation for in-service-software updates and self-healing resiliency.

7060X and 7260X Series Systems

Arista 7060X and 7260X Series all support hot-swappable power supplies and N+1 fan redundancy, EOS high availability and live software patching, a choice of L2 and L3 multi-pathing designs and powerful EOS innovations for visibility, application level performance monitoring, traffic management and virtualization.
