Overview:

Designed with the next generation of large-scale data centers in mind, the Aruba CX 10000 Switch Series delivers a flexible and innovative approach to address the security compliance, performance, agility, and scalability demands of the highly distributed, hybrid, multi-cloud application era.

In conjunction with Pensando, Aruba has defined a new market category of data center switches. The CX 10000 combines the best-of-breed network operating system, Aruba AOS-CX, for data center, campus, and edge in addition to the fully programmable Pensando DPU. This allows the CX 10000 to deliver stateful software-defined services inline, at scale, with wire-rate performance and orders of magnitude scale and performance improvements over traditional L2/3 switches at a fraction of their TCO.

The Aruba CX 10000 allows operators to extend industry standard leaf-spine networking with distributed stateful segmentation, east-west firewalling, NAT1, encryption1, and telemetry services—all delivered inline, all the time, on every access port, closer to where critical enterprise applications run. The CX 10000 distributed services architecture is agnostic of network deployment architecture. This allows the flexibility to enable stateful services delivery, when deployed as access, leaf Top of Rack (ToR), or End of Row (EoR) in a datacenter, and potentially in the aggregation layer in campus or edge data center designs.

The CX 10000 offers 3.6Tbps of line-rate switching capacity with interface configurations supporting 1/10/25GbE (SFP/ SFP+/SFP28) and 40/100GbE (QSFP+/QSFP28) connectivity, in a compact 1U form factor. Consequently, these switches offer a fantastic investment for customers migrating from older 1GbE/10GbE to faster 25GbE, or from 10GbE/40GbE to 100GbE ports.

What's New

  • A category of Distributed Services Switch.
  • Aruba CX with embedded Programmable DPU (Pensando Elba).
  • Unified network and security policy via Aruba Fabric Composer.
  • Security ecosystem integration with 3rd party vendors.
  • Leverages existing Aruba AOS-CX Cloud Native Switching.

Notes:
1. Supported in future software release

Features:

Improves Network Bandwidth and Performance

Aruba CX 10000 Switch Series with Pensando offers a unique blend of performance and scale for distributing advanced networking and security services where it’s impractical and costly to force traffic back and forth across the network to a centralized policy enforcement point.

Simplify application of services at the services network access layer edge.

Limit Security Appliance Sprawl and Cost

Aruba CX 10000 Switch Series with Pensando improves network bandwidth and performance by not having to trombone local traffic to a centralized chokepoint, helping to improve security posture while limiting appliance sprawl complexity and cost.

The Aruba CX 10000 provides a compelling architectural alternative that distributes these advanced services to the data center edge, with unified network and security automation and policy management.

Extend Zero Trust and Micro Segmentation

Aruba CX 10000 Switch Series with Pensando allows operators to extend industry standard leaf-spine networking with 800G of distributed micro-segmentation, east-west firewalling, NAT, encryption and telemetry services—delivered inline, across every port, closer to critical enterprise applications.

Organizations with dedicated SecOps teams can leverage Policy and Services and Manager (PSM) based on specific security roles and responsibilities for increased scalability and fault tolerance.

Simplify Operations

Aruba CX 10000 Switch Series with Pensando is integrated with Aruba Fabric Composer which provides unified network and security management, automated switch and network configurations, and unified security policy and distributed firewalls across the entire switching fabric.

The Aruba CX 10000 integrates via a Rest API and provides flow data to security and network performance tools including Advanced Security ML (XDR), Application Dependency Mapping (ADM), Network Performance Management (NPM), SIEM/SOAR, firewall compliance rules, and identity group mapping tools.

Product Differentiators:

  • AOS-CX - a modern software system
  • Pensando Stateful Software Services
  • Aruba Network Analytics Engine
  • Aruba NetEdit—Automated switch configuration and management
  • Aruba Virtual Switching Extension

Managing The Aruba CX 10000

Aruba Fabric Composer

Aruba Fabric Composer is an intelligent, API-driven, softwaredefined orchestration solution that simplifies and accelerates leaf-spine fabric provisioning and day-to-day operations across rack-scale compute and storage infrastructure. What makes Aruba Fabric Composer different from other solutions is that the software can orchestrate a discrete set of switches as a single entity, which significantly simplifies operations and troubleshooting. This solution is fully infrastructure and application aware, providing automation of various configuration and lifecycle events.

Aruba Fabric Composer also provides unified network and security management for the Aruba CX 10000 platform. This provides automated switch and network configurations, while also unifying security policy and distributed firewalls across the entire switching fabric. This unified network and security policy management significantly simplifies operations and troubleshooting. This solution is implemented to augment switch-by-switch configuration, so operators can access any device directly and make local changes, which means you get the best environment for both traditional network operators in addition to DevOps and SecOps automation.
