Software Defined Networking - SDN Switch

The Arista 7150S Advantages:

  • SDN Switch architected for leading-edge applications including Big Data, Cloud Networks, Financial Trading, HPC and Web 2.0 environments
  • Industry leading accurate and predictable performance in a range of densities (deterministic high performance, lowest latency and jitter for all traffic)
  • Unprecedented balanced resources and deployment flexibility for "Any Application" suitability
  • Network–wide virtualization platform for next generation cloud bursting support with wire speed VXLAN hardware-based Tunnel Endpoint termination
  • Supports sub-microsecond Network Address Translation (NAT)
  • Deterministic latency and high-performance 10G/ 40G switch and IEEE 1588 Platform
  • Integrated switch for precision data analysis and capture (DANZ) - redefining instrumentation, automation and analysis of high-end infrastructure

The 7150 Series includes the 7150S and the 7150SC models. The 7150SC models are equipped with a higher performance control plane and meet newer ROHS requirements. The 7150 Series provide 24, 52 or 64 10Gb ports. Each model supports wire-speed performance at both layer 2 and layer 3. Both the 7150-24 and 7150-52 support SFP+ on all ports. The 7150-64 has 48 SFP+ and 4 QSFP+ ports. The SFP+ ports support 1G and 10G operation and also 100Mb support with 100/1000-TX transceivers. The QSFP+ ports support 40GbE and 4x10GbE modes.

Arista offers a new approach to TAP Aggregation that delivers security, availability and data analysis for high density, non-blocking 10/25/40/50/100GbE networks at any scale– all powered by Arista EOS® software to deliver an order of magnitude improvement in the economics of building cloud-scale visibility.

Next generation TAP Aggregation using Arista CloudVision® with Arista Data ANalyZer (DANZ) makes it possible to cost-effectively and losslessly monitor all datacenter network traffic, while capturing and analyzing only the traffic that is needed. DANZ is a precision visibility architecture that can scale to thousands of access points and hundreds of Terabits bandwidth.

DANZ lowers CAPEX and OPEX versus traditional packet brokers or in-band monitoring approaches with its cloud-scale architecture, best-in-class business value and deep lossless visibility features. DANZ provides both an in-band and out-of-band telemetry and packet capture architecture, not available in lower scale, proprietary add-on visibility fabrics. With DANZ, customers can transform opaque datacenter traffic into comprehensive visibility for security threat detection and mitigation, application and network performance management, service availability monitoring, traffic recording and troubleshooting.

Arista TAP Aggregation capabilities deliver the ability to integrate visibility into current and future enterprise cloud, service provider and other large scale cloud environments with the same highly scalable platforms optimized as Arista’s Universal Leaf and Spine, including:

  • High density, non-blocking, wire-speed 10/25/40/50/100GbE packet capture with advanced traffic management capabilities for lossless monitoring of network traffic
  • Support for up to 432 ports of 100G and 1152 ports of 10/25G in a single non-blocking platform that simplifies deployment by providing higher density and capacity with fewer devices
  • Programmability and automation for operations in a cloud environment that is all provided on Arista’s proven open switching platforms, including: 7150-Series, 7280R-Series and 7500R-Series, without proprietary fabrics or inflexible designs
  • Advanced network packet broker functionality delivered at wire-rate without the need for additional service-nodes or “smart” blades that create performance bottlenecks
  • CloudVision as single point of control for provisioning, orchestration and real-time telemetry for both the TAP Aggregation network, as well as the general purpose datacenter network infrastructure

The DANZ solution delivers scalable end-to-end network and application visibility with exceptional flexibility and precision, while enabling existing third-party security and monitoring tools to integrate directly with captured data.
