Grazed from Arista Networks

Arista Networks today announced an expanded family of platforms delivering 10x performance for switching and routing. The new generation of 25G and 100G systems add new capabilities for visibility, load balancing, network segmentation, scale and allow both Cloud and Enterprise customers to easily migrate their networks, retaining operational consistency.

The Arista 7050X3 and 7260X3 Series are fixed-form factor leaf and spine platforms based on the Broadcom Trident 3 and Tomahawk 2 chip sets running Arista EOS for rich automation and visibility. The 7050 and 7060 Series scale performance at a tenfold increase in just seven years, enabling versatile two-tier cloud networks.

"We are seeing customer adoption of on-premises cloud-scale applications with high bandwidth, driven by virtualized and containerized servers, driving a migration to 25/100G in Enterprise networks to address the increasing bandwidth. These new systems require improvements in network telemetry and performance monitoring tools, aligned to an expectation of an ‘always-on' operation," said Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst for 650 Group.
