High Availability and Reliability

Both the fans and PSUs are hot-swappable to increase uptime, and front-to-back airflow allows the creation of optimal cooling configurations.

MLAG enables efficient network topologies that also increase uptime with dual-management, control planes, and upgrades that don’t affect services.

Load Sharing
Enables both PSUs to evenly distribute the load to increase reliability and lifetime.

1+1 redundancy
Maintains uptime even if a power supply fails.

Virtualisation and Data Center Features

VXLAN allows deployments of larger and more flexible VLAN architectures by using a 24-bit ID, which enables deployments of up to 16 million isolated logical networks across Layer 3 subnets to accommodate the increasing scale of virtualized cloud environments.

24-bit ID
Uses this network identifier to address L2 segments.

16 million
VXLAN greatly increases the number of simultaneous VLANs.
