Fixed Port L3 Managed Ethernet Switches

The Arista 7050SX 10/40 Data Center Switch Series offers 1RU and two 2RU models delivering high-density 1/10G SFP+ based-ports and 10/40G ports using QSFP+, or embedded optics with MXP multi-speed ports for higher density. All models deliver rich L2 and L3 features with wire speed performance up to 2.56 Tbps. All Arista switches run on the same Arista EOS modular switch operating system with a unique state-sharing architecture that cleanly separates switch state from protocol processing and application logic.

Cloud Networking Ready

The Arista 7050SX 10/40 Data Center Switch Series offers a choice of seven different 1RU and two 2RU models, delivering high density 1/10G SFP+ based ports and 10/40G ports using QSFP+ or embedded optics with MXP multi-speed ports for higher density.

All models deliver rich L2 and L3 features with wire speed performance up to a level of 2.56 Tbps with low latency from 550 ns in cut-through mode and a shared packet buffer pool of up to 16 MB that is allocated dynamically to ports that are congested. environments.

Supports flexible combinations of 10G and 40G that allow you to design a large leaf and spine network to accommodate both east-west traffic patterns found in modern data centers, high-performance compute and big data environments.

With typical power consumption of less than 2 Watts per 10GbE port, this series has industry leading power efficiency with airflow choices for back to front or front to back.

Supported by Arista EOS

The Arista EOS software simplifies network administration, as it is built on top of standard Linux kernel, all EOS processes run in their own protected memory space and exchange state through an in-memory database.

All Arista switches run on the same Arista EOS modular switch operating system with a unique state sharing architecture that cleanly separates switch state from protocol processing and application logic.

This multi-process state sharing architecture provides the foundation for in-service-software updates and self-healing resiliency together with stateful switchover, without the loss of data plane forwarding.

Offers advanced monitoring and automation capabilities such as Zero Touch Provisioning. VMTracer and Linux based tools can be run natively on the switch with the powerful x86 CPU subsystem.
