Its unique features include a non-blocking architecture, advanced traffic management capabilities, and efficient power and cooling designs, making it an ideal choice for large-scale data center deployments.


The Arista DCS-7050SX2-72Q-R is a high performance, low latency switch optimized for data center switching and routing. The switch takes advantage of the latest 10/40/100GbE switching technology and its innovative Trident++ switch fabric to deliver wire-speed Layer 2 and 3 switching with less than 800 nanoseconds latency in all modes. With 48x QSFP+ ports, 2x SFP+ ports, and 2x QSFP cages, this switch is ideal for applications requiring high density 40/100GbE uplinks or stacking. Outfitted with 384GB of system memory and a 5.12 Terabits per second backplane capacity, the Arista DCS-7050SX2-72Q-R can easily handle large amounts of traffic without any sacrifice in performance. To ensure reliable transmission, the switch has been built with advanced error correction and reliability features such as ISSU (In Service Software Upgrade) and SDN (Software Defined Networking). This helps to prevent packet loss during software upgrades or changes in configuration. In terms of power consumption, the Arista DCS-7050SX2-72Q-R features energy efficient designs, including a fanless operation mode that uses less than 400 W. It also supports up to two 1+1 redundant power supplies and provides full power redundancy protection. For network security, the switch comes preloaded with Arista’s EOS (Extensible Operating System). This OS offers several advanced security features to protect your network from malicious attacks, including Access Control Lists (ACLs), 802.1x authentication, and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) snooping. The Arista DCS-7050SX2-72Q-R also stands out thanks to its intuitive graphical dashboard functionality. The dashboard allows users to quickly access and monitor critical metrics such as latency, port usage, traffic statistics and other performance related data. Additionally, the EOS offers advanced management features such as remote network monitoring, advanced alerting capabilities and automated troubleshooting systems. These features make it possible to easily manage an expansive Arista data center network from a single point solution. When it comes to real-world performance, the latest Arista DCS-7050SX2-72Q-R is able to offer impressive speed and low latency rates even under heaving workloads. This makes it an ideal choice for environments that require fast switching speeds and low latency.
