Aruba CX 8360 v2 Switch Series
The Aruba CX 8360 v2 Switch Series offers a flexible and innovative approach to addressing the application, security, and scalability demands of the mobile, cloud, and IoT era. These switches serve the needs of the next generation core and aggregation layer of campuses, as well as virtual and cloud data center environments. The first switch in this series is the Aruba CX 8360-48Y6C v2 switch.
- 48-port 1/10/25G with 4 MACsec, 6-port of 40/100G with 2 MACsec.
- MACsec secured connectivity over untrusted domains.
- Intelligent monitoring and visibility with Aruba Network Analytics Engine.
- High availability with industry leading VSX redundancy.
Modular Cloud-Native Architecture
The Aruba CX 8360 v2 Switch Series AOS-CX simplify the complexities of managing data center networks with automation options to match your IT organization’s operating model.
Proactively detect issues and speed troubleshooting with actionable insights provided by an analytics engine embedded in every switch. Always-on infrastructure designed for resiliency and upgrades with zero downtime.
REST APIs and Python scripting provide fine-grained microservices architecture enabling full integration with other workflow systems and services.
Continual state synchronization provides superior fault tolerance and high availability. Always-on infrastructure designed for resiliency and upgrades with zero downtime.
Aruba Network Analytics Engine
The Aruba Network Analytics Engine (NAE) for advanced telemetry and automation. NAE is an industry-first monitoring and troubleshooting system, providing greatly improved network operations. NAE uniquely provides the ability to monitor and easily troubleshoot network health and congestion issues.
Customers can use data from The Time Series Database (TSDB) to store configuration and operational state to write software modules to troubleshoot problems. This data may also be used to analyze trends, identify anomalies, and predict future capacity requirements.
High Availability and Resiliency
All software processes in the Aruba CX 8360 v2 Switch Series run as microservices that communicate via the state database of the switch, there is no direct communication between microservices. Should a software process crash, the impact of that failure will be limited.
The ability of ArubaOS-CX to maintain synchronous state across dual control planes allows a unique high availability solution called Aruba Virtual Switching Extension (VSX).
Aruba VSX provides a robust, yet simple solution for high availability with a unique design for control plane synchronization and an architecture that is redundant in both hardware and software by deploying two chassis with an inter-switch link, maintaining its independent control.
The Aruba CX 8360 v2 Switch Series is supported by Aruba Fabric Composer, a software-defined orchestration solution that simplifies and accelerates leaf-spine network provisioning and day-to-day operations across rack-scale compute and storage infrastructure.
Orchestrate a discrete set of switches as a single networking fabric to simplify operations and troubleshooting. This infrastructure and application-aware solution also automates various configuration and lifecycle events.
