The Arista 7050QX-32 is a member of the Arista 7050X series and a key component of the Arista portfolio of data center switches. The Arista 7050X series are purpose built 10/40GbE data center switches in compact and energy efficient form factors with wirespeed layer 2 and layer 3 features, combined with advanced features for software defined cloud networking.
Increased adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet servers coupled with applications using higher bandwidth is accelerating the need for dense 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet switching. The 7050QX-32 supports a flexible combination of 10G and 40G in a highly compact form factor that allows customers to design large leaf and spine networks to accommodate east-west traffic patterns found in modern data centers, high performance compute and big data environments.
Featuring 32 QSFP+ ports in a 1RU form factor the 7050QX-32 switch delivers feature rich layer 2 and layer 3 wirespeed performances with an overall throughput of 2.56 Tbps. For configuration flexibility the 7050QX-32 supports up to 32 x 40GbE ports or 24 ports can be used as 4 x 10GbE for a 96 x 10GbE and 8 x 40GbE system. The Arista 7050QX-32 offers low latency from 550 ns in cut-through mode, and a shared 12 MB packet buffer pool that is allocated dynamically to ports that are congested. With typical power consumption of less than 5 watts per 40GbE port the 7050X series provide industry leading power efficiency.
Combined with Arista EOS the 7050X series delivers advanced features for big data, cloud, virtualized and traditional designs.
