The Arista 7010T oﬀers a purpose built high performance and power eﬃcient solution for high density data center deployments. With 48 ports of 10/100/1000 and 4 integrated 1/10GbE SFP+ ports the switch delivers non-blocking forwarding of 176Gbps combined with feature rich L2 and L3 switching. A natural extension to the 7050X Series the 7010T are members of the Arista portfolio of data center switches.
The 7010T delivers the flexibility to be deployed as the server edge of 1Gb Ethernet leaf and spine designs or as a dedicated management network switch. With broad support for QoS, security, automation and monitoring features the 7010T provides an ideal solution to the challenges of implementing network policy consistently in both 1G and 10G environments when combined with the Arista fixed configuration 10G switches. Arista EOS advanced automation, monitoring and provisioning features that are consistent to all Arista 7000 Series switches, eliminate the complexity associated with managing mixed environments with inconsistent feature sets. Addressing the need for server Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) and out of band (OOB) network monitoring, demands solutions that are simple to deploy and manage, with full support for 100Mb and 1Gb with redundant power and cooling for availability.
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.
Consuming under 52W the 7010T are extremely power eﬃcient at less than 1W per port. Built in power redundancy and customer reversible redundant fans allows cooling airflow in either forward or reverse direction in a single system.
The Arista 7010T runs the same Arista EOS software as all Arista products, simplifying network administration. Arista EOS is a modular switch operating system with a unique state sharing architecture that cleanly separates switch state from protocol processing and application logic. 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. This multi-process state sharing architecture provides the foundation for in-service-software updates and self-healing resiliency.
With Arista EOS, advanced monitoring and automation capabilities such as Zero Touch Provisioning, VMTracer and Linux based tools can be run natively on the switch with the powerful x86 CPU subsystem.
The Arista 7010T series switches were designed for high availability from both a software and hardware perspective. Key high availability features include:
- 1+1 Redundant internal power supplies
- Redundant and reversible dual inline fan module
- Color coded fan module to indicate airflow direction
- Live software patching
- Self healing software with Stateful Fault Repair (SFR)
- Up to 32 ports per link aggregation group (LAG)
- Multi-chassis LAG for active/active L2 multi-pathing
- 64-way ECMP routing for load balancing and redundancy
Out of Band Networks
The 7010T provides for the consistent application of access controls, network security features and remote monitoring to protect access to both dedicated management interfaces and restrict access to authorized users of out-of-band networks. Intelligent Platform Management Interfaces (IPMI) on servers provide a standard interface for complete system management including startup, management, maintenance and shutdown over standard Ethernet networks. Access to the IPMI ports allows for privileged access and full control of the server. The Arista 7010T with EOS provides rich features that are applied to both the management networks and the production data center networks consistently across the range of Arista 7000 Series switches.
Scaling Data Center Performance
The Arista 7010T series delivers line rate switching at layer 2 and layer 3 to enable dramatically faster and simpler network designs for data centers that lowers the network capital and operational expenses. When used in conjunction with the Arista 7000 series of fixed and modular switches it allows networks to scale to over 55,000 1G servers in a high performance and low-latency two-tier network that provides predictable and consistent application performance. The flexibility of the L2 and L3 multi-path design options combined with support for open standards provides maximum flexibility, scalability and network wide virtualization. Arista EOS advanced features provide control and visibility with single point of management.
