Aruba CX 10000 Switch Series
The Next Evolution of Switching Architecture
Deploy software-defined stateful services where data is processed
The Aruba CX 10000 provides 800G of distributed stateful firewall for east-west traffic, zero-trust segmentation, and pervasive telemetry.
Optimizes network bandwidth and performance
The Aruba CX 10000 offers performance, scale, and automation 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. Instead, it simply applies services at the services network access layer edge, where the applications are running.
Improves security posture and limits appliance sprawl
Centralized security appliances are inefficient and expensive at inspecting and protecting east-west application traffic within the data center. Hair-pinning traffic to an appliance at the data center edge comes with heavy performance and cost penalties. The Aruba CX 10000 provides an entirely new switching solution to overcome these legacy limitations.
Extends Zero Trust and micro segmentation
The Aruba CX 10000 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.
Aruba Fabric Composer 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.
Distributed Services Switch
The CX 10000 provides distributes advanced services to the data center edge, with unified network and security automation and policy.
High-performance data center switching
3.6Tbps of switching capacity, 48 ports of line rate 10/25GbE (SFP/SFP+/SFP28), and 6 40/100GbE ports (QSFP+/QSFP28).
Programmable DPU (Pensando Elba)
800G of distributed stateful firewall for east-west traffic, zero-trust segmentation, pervasive telemetry, and in the future stateful NAT, encryption services.
Unified network and security policy
Centralized switch/network configurations and distributed firewall policy definitions orchestrated by Aruba Fabric Composer.
Security ecosystem integration
Integration with a wide variety of security and network performance tools including Advanced Security, Application Dependency Mapping and Performance Management.
Next Generation Migration
Stateful software-defined services, at scale, proving orders of magnitude scale and performance improvements over traditional data center L2/3 switches at a fraction of their TCO.
