Arista 7000 series

Core and data center applications are the strengths of Arista products. The distribution layer is also a good fit. For the access layer, it would be more of a niche product.

Cons

Arista 7000 series

I have used the Catalyst 6500 series in the past. From my point of view, the Arista surpasses the Catalyst on just about every front. Originally we were planning on implementing the Nexus 7000/7700 series switches for our core. Though a little more feature rich, it did not provide features we needed that the Arista did. The Nexus also was a confusing and complex platform to work with. Also, the Nexus was a significantly more expensive solution. Although very happy with the Arista switches we may evaluate the Aruba HPE 8400 chassis-based switches along with Arista switches in the future.

Dell EMC PowerSwitch S Series

My journey in connecting with our product suppliers and reporting on daily sales relies on the great networking infrastructure created by this great tool. Integration of this platform with our applications was easy and it started operations immediately after configuration. Though I have not used similar networking for comparison, I have always gained suitable insights that have led to effective decision-making. It has the best data security features that have defined a secure working environment for all our staff.
