Arista 7280E Advantages:

  • Improve performance of bandwidth intensive applications found in High Performance Storage or streaming video
  • Ultra deep buffers and VOQ for lossless performance in demanding environments where congestion and large flows are present - as in Big Data environments or Media and Entertainment
  • Wirespeed VXLAN expanding next generation virtualized datacenters
  • Integrated SSD storage allows for unique extensibility abilities, traffic monitoring and Software Defined Networking applications
  • Hardware assisted Precision Time Protocol (PTP) enables accurate timing solutions across Ethernet based networks without costly investments in deploying separate timing networks

Open Solutions using 100GbE

  • Choices of 100GbE interface increases deployment flexibility
  • MXP 100GbE ports offers range of 10/40/100GbE in a single port up to 400m over OM4 fiber
  • Hot-swap QSFP100 ports for ease of plug and play and simple migration from 40G to 100G
  • Full range of standards based 100GbE cables and optics from 3m up to 10km

Unparalleled Performance with Ultra Deep Buffers and VOQ

  • Ultra deep 9GB of packet buffers enables lossless traffic flows for storage networks
  • Solves 10GbE and 40GbE speed mismatches in High Performance Computing and Oil and Gas Exploration Systems due to TCP incast
  • High performance solution for top of rack at 10/40/100GbE
  • Virtual Output Queue (VOQ) that eliminates head of line blocking and virtually eliminates packet drops due to network congestion

Integrated SSD for Extensibility and Traffic Analysis

  • Install EOS extensions and tools locally using high capacity SSD
  • Use local storage to host network services at the rack inside EOS or without extra equipment in remote datacenters
  • Locally capture mirror, LANZ or sFlow data for analysis
  • Provide long-term, power loss safe historical data on switches for enhanced monitoring in any environment

Datacenter Optimized

  • 1 rack unit (RU) for up to 72 ports of 10GbE
  • Front to rear and reversible airflow for flexible installation
  • High availability and simple provisioning
  • MXP ports with support for 10GbE, 40GbE and 100GbE in one interface
  • Tool-less rack rails
