Marketing Information: The Arista 7280R and 7280R2 are part of the 7280R series of fixed systems, which are key components of the Arista 7000 Series portfolio of data center switches. The 7280R MACsec systems are high performance compact routing platforms with built-in wire speed MACsec encryption that is purpose built for the highest performance environments, and to meet the needs of large scale data centers. They deliver scalable L2 and L3 resources and high density with advanced features for encryption, network monitoring, precision timing and network virtualization to deliver scalable and deterministic network performance while simplifying designs and reducing Opex. The built-in MACsec capability removes the need for external encryption devices and provides security against intrusion, passive wire tapping and other playback attacks. MACsec encryption meets regulatory compliance requirements and provides data protection without loss of performance.

The Arista MACsec solution utilizes proven encryption technology to protect traffic for simple, reliable and scalable data center interconnect and for securing links between tiers in leaf and spine data center designs. MACsec offers security in the data link layer and is transparent and non-disruptive to L2/L3 traffic. Flexible 100GbE QSFP pluggable optics ensures a broad choice of cost effective connections.

The 7280CR2M and 7280SRAM can be deployed in a wide range of open networking solutions including secure Data Center Interconnect (DCI), large scale layer 2 and layer 3 cloud designs, overlay networks and virtualized or traditional enterprise data center networks. Deep packet buffers and large routing tables allow for internet peering applications. The broad range of interfaces and density choice provides deployment flexibility.

Arista EOS

All Arista products including the 7280R runs the same Arista EOS software, binary image simplifying network administration with a single standard across all switches. 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 together with stateful switchover without the loss of data plane forwarding.

Arista EOS enables advanced monitoring and automation capabilities such as Zero Touch Provisioning, LANZ, VM Tracer and Linux based tools to be run natively on the switch.
