    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.

    Juniper SRX

    SRXs seem to be well suited at the enterprise level for plain routers, firewalls, and IDP/IDS. They work well on MPLS and Ethernet, including Internet. I have 3 SRXs also performing edge duty, with 2 in a high availability (HA) cluster. The Juniper line of SRXs provides a good range of scaling from small business to extremely large enterprise. Wire speed is a common comparison factor and Juniper shines in that area.

    Pros

    Arista 7000 series

    • The 7304's along side our core network design has provided 100% uptime during the 5 years of deployment.
    • The multi-chassis LAG has provided near 100% connectivity to the distribution and access switches.
    • Very low maintenance attention is needed.

    Cons

    Arista 7000 series

    • The 7304's lack a graceful non-intrusive upgrade method even though they are dual supervisor.
    • I would like to see more integration with Aruba's ClearPass and Airwave products.

    Juniper SRX

    • My only real criticism of the product is that it's hard to figure out how to upgrade the firmware from the CLI via TFTP via the docs, but it works great once you get it sorted.

    Juniper SRX 6.4
    Based on 6 answers
    This is the one area where I have a beef with Juniper. When I called into Cisco TAC, 90% of the time, the first person I spoke with was able to resolve my issue. With Juniper TAC, 90% of the time, the first person I speak with is not able to resolve my issue, seems to almost be reading from a script, and must escalate my ticket. All of which takes time.

    Alternatives Considered

    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.

    The comparison between the different firewalls is really down to preference and price at this point. The SRX is a solid device, and we have not seen a hardware failure to date. The Juniper support I have had is stellar and has helped me out with larger more complex scenario development.

    Return on Investment

    Arista 7000 series

    • The Arista 7000 series met or exceed our data center switching and routing needs.
    • It provided a more cost effective alternative to other products we were considering.
    • Implementation was quick and easy due to the simple standards-based configuration.

    Juniper SRX

    • Although I'm not a part of the budgeting process, I do know that by using Juniper SRXs, we were able to get the products we needed with much less issues and justifications as other product we've purchased in the past.
