Finally, Arista ships modern switches for 25G edge and 100G in the spine for non-blocking ECMP architectures.
The 7260X3 and 7050X3 Series are available in configurations to address both leaf and spine roles.
7260CX3 supports up to 64 ports of 100G or 12.8Tbps with up to 4.2Bpps of packet forwarding in 2U and a 42MB packet buffer
7050X3 Series offers consistent features and innovations in two models:
The 7050CX3–32S is a compact 1U with 32 ports of 100G
The 7050SX3–48YC12 delivers high density 25G server and 100G uplinks
The EtherealMind View
- Early sighting of Broadcom Trident 3 ASIC in product. x
- fixed-form factor leaf and spine platforms based on the Broadcom Trident 3 and Tomahawk 2
- Non-blocking leaf/spine architectures for 25G attached servers on a non-blocking ECMP fabric
- This hardware should last for a decade or more in an enterprise data centre since most haven’t achieved 10G yet so 25G edge is long term strategy.
