Fixed Port L3 Managed Ethernet Switches

The Arista 7050X3 Series 10/25/40/50/100G Data Center Switches are high-performance flexible data center switches with a rich set of wire speed L2 and L3 features combined with extensive automation and programmability capabilities, low latency and consistent features for software driven cloud networking. These 7050X3 switches are available in a choice of configuration options. Combining high density and industry-leading power efficiency with typical power consumption under 7W per 100GbE port, the 7050CX3-32S model is ideal for both high-performance leaf and collapsed spine tiers. And offering 48 ports of 25G SFP ports and 12 ports of 100G QSFP ports, the 7050SX3-48YC12 model enables high performance in a compact 1RU form factor that enables high-density 25G solutions without network oversubscription.

What's new

  • Purpose-built in a compact and energy efficient form factors with wire speed Layer 2 and Layer 3 features combined with low latency and advanced features for software defined cloud networking.
  • Flexible combination of speeds including 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE and 100GbE.
  • Delivers rich features for big data, cloud, virtualized and traditional designs.
  • Allows customers to start with a design leveraging 10GbE/40GbE today and migrate easily to a 25GbE/100GbE solution in the future.
  • Designed to be efficient with power per port as low as 7W per 100GbE port which, combined with front to rear cooling, can improve the data center environment.

Features

Scaling Data Center Performance

The Arista 7050X3 Series 10/25/40/50/100G Data Center Switches delivers high performance combined with feature rich Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding, suited for both top-of-rack leaf and fixed-configuration spines.

All ports can operate in any supported mode without limitation, allowing easy migration from lower speeds and the flexibility for leaf or spine deployment.

The QSFP ports allow for a choice of five speeds including 100GbE, 40GbE, 4x10GbE, 4x25GbE or 2x 50GbE with a wide choice of transceivers and cables for increased flexibility of deployment.

With low latency and no oversubscription, the switch is enhanced for high-performance server and storage deployments.

Scale Out Network Designs

The Arista 7050X3 Series 10/25/40/50/100G Data Center Switches, deployed in cut-through mode, will forward packets with a consistent low latency of 800 nanoseconds.

Advanced traffic control and monitoring features help improve the agility of modern high-performance environments, with solutions for data monitoring, and next-generation virtualization.

Dynamic thresholds are used to allocate packet memory based on traffic class, queue depth and quality of service policy, maintaining a fair allocation to all ports of both lossy and lossless classes.

Smart System Upgrade provides a fully customizable suite of features that tightly couples data center infrastructure to technology partners allowing for intelligent insertion and removal of programmable updates to software releases.

Arista Extensible Operating System (EOS)

The Arista 7050X3 Series 10/25/40/50/100G Data Center Switches come with the Arista EOS, a modular switch operating system with a unique state-sharing architecture that cleanly separates switch state from protocol processing and application logic which improves performance.

Built on top of a standard Linux® kernel, all Arista EOS processes run in their own protected memory space and exchange state through an in-memory database.

Arista EOS automates complex IT workflows and simplifies network operations while reducing downtime. Its rich automation capabilities not only reduce the human error element in network operations but also enables IT operators to make the network work the way they want.
