The Arista 7160 Data Center Switch Series are purpose-built, fixed-configuration 10/25GbE and 100GbE systems with wire-speed layer 2/3 features, built for the highest performance environments and the largest scale data centers. It can be deployed in a wide range of open networking solutions including cloud designs, overlay networks, virtualized or traditional enterprise data center networks. The Arista EOS simplifies administration, as it is 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.

Features

High Performance 10/25/40/100GbE Leaf-spine

Arista 7160 Data Center Switch Series are purpose-built, fixed-configuration 10/25GbE and 100GbE systems with wire-speed L2/3 features, built for the highest-performance environments and the largest scale data centers.

Combines scalable L2/3 resources with high density and highly programmable and customizable switch architecture.

Can be deployed in a wide range of open networking solutions including large-scale L2/3 cloud designs, overlay networks, virtualized or traditional enterprise data center networks.

Simple software updates allow reconfiguratation of packet parsing, lookups, traffic scheduling, packet modification and traffic monitoring without re-engineering the switch.

Enables flexible choices of port speed providing unparalleled flexibility and the ability to seamlessly transition data centers to the next generation of Ethernet performance.

Supported by Arista EOS

The Arista EOS software simplifies network administration, as it is 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.

Supports next-generation virtualized data centers by tight integration with orchestration tools and emerging technologies.

Offers a single binary image, and a fine-grained truly modular network operating system.
