Arista DCS-7308-CH is an ultra-high performance, fixed-configuration, data center switch with cloud networking capabilities. It combines Arista’s cutting edge hardware with advanced software, delivering maximum performance and scale while delivering improved operational efficiencies. With the DCS-7308-CH, organizations have access to the highest density 10/25/40/50/100 GbE combinable optical ports and support for high power PoE (Power over Ethernet) and enhanced multicast. The DCS-7308-CH is designed as a part of Arista’s 7000 Series of switches with a nonblocking QSFP28 spine switch with 48 line-rate 100GbE ports in a single 1ru form factor. This allows for high speed backbone connectivity linking TOR spines in large scale data centers. The switch supports a broad selection of next generation forwarding features including MPLS, TRILL, VXLAN, routed fabric, and traditional routing protocols like BGP, OSPF and EIGRP. Additionally, the system provides compatibility with many hypervisors such as VMware ESXi and vCenter, as well as Microsoft Hyper-V and System Center. The DCS-7308-CH is powered by Arista’s custom built ARM CPU’s (Cavium Nitrox XL) that utilize embedded memory to provide superior switching throughput performance. The ARM CPU cores operate at speeds up to 2Ghz and have embedded DDR4 traffic buffer and internal control plane queues. This combination provides line rate switching at all speeds up to 100Gbps while maintaining ultra low latency, on an energy efficient platform that eliminates costly external chassis fans. Arista DCS-7308-CH also supports flexible port configuration options including auto speed negotiation and allows multi-rate speed multiplexing with 10/25/40/50/100GbE safe wavelenghths on one pair of fibers. Furthermore, it offers increased power allowing for features such as 802.3bt Type 4 PoE+ which requires up to 90W of PoE power on a single port. Finally, the DCS-7308-CH is equipped with 1 GB of flash storage and has industry grade temperature sensor and Smart Fan support for improved system reliability. Overall, Arista DCS-7308-CH provides customers with best in class network performance capability through its innovative hardware designs that can maximize power efficiency while simplifying the Data Center architecture. As an all in one solution it provides unparalleled combination of flexibility, performance and scalability making it an ideal data center switch for today’s modern networks.
