Andy Bechtolsheim and Jayshree Ullal discuss Arista Networks and Cloud Computing


7010 Series Technical Specifications

The Arista 7010T family of Ethernet switches combine a compact form factor, low power and cooling with performance, scalability, availability and operational ease to meet the demands of todays higher performance enterprises.

Featuring a choice of two models the 7010T Series provide a choice of AC or DC power. Both models have 48 10/100/1000Mb RJ45 ports and 4 SFP+ ports for both 1G or 10G uplink connections with a full range of optics and cables. The Arista 7010T switches offer low latency and a shared packet buffer pool that is allocated dynamically to ports that are congested.

Arista EOS and 7010 Series

The 7010 Series enable highly scalable two-tier network designs with MLAG and ECMP technologies, open protocols and a comprehensive set of advanced monitoring and provisioning features to meet the demands of high performance networks.

MLAG - All Active Multipath for Layer 2

  • Standards based protocol (LACP)
  • Simplified or eliminates Spanning Tree topolog
  • Simple to understand and easy to engineer traffic
  • ISSU for fully independent upgrades of MLAG members

High Availability

  • Standards based protocol (OSPF, BGP, ISIS)
  • Eliminates L2 for exceptional scalability and fault tolerance
  • Exceptional scale with consistent performance in 2 tiers

IPv4 and IPv6 Routing Support

  • Comprehensive L2 and L3 forwarding table resources for more design choice
  • IPv4 and IPv6 Layer 3 routing (OSPF, BGP, ISIS and PIM), enabling highly resilient multi-path networks.

Advanced Monitoring and Provisioning

  • ZTP fully automates network and server provisioning using standards based protocols and scripting tools
  • Advanced Event Management suite (AEM)
  • eAPI provides an open interface to EOS to allow Netops to build robust workflow automation
  • OpenStack Neutron Support for integrated orchestration
  • CloudVision for a topology agnostic single point of management
  • VMTracer integration with VMWare to simplify monitoring of physical and virtualized environments
