Aruba CX 8360 Switch Series

This intelligent, high-performance switch is designed for both enterprise campus cores and data centers needing top-of-rack server connectivity and scale-out, rack-rack, spine, and leaf fabric topology aggregation.

High-performance enterprise campus and data center switch

The Aruba CX 8360 offers a flexible and innovative approach to addressing the application, security, and scalability demands of emerging end-to-end, enterprise edge-cloud network connectivity requirements.

Icon for simplify your IT operations Simplify your IT operations

Simplify your IT operations

Offering a combination of cutting-edge hardware, a cloud-native operating system, and intuitive software-defined orchestration tools, the CX 8360 helps to simplify operations, improve IT efficiency, and enable always-on network availability.

Icon for accelerate IT provisioning Accelerate IT provisioning

Accelerate IT provisioning

Aruba Fabric Composer, a smart, software-defined orchestration solution, simplifies operations, increases network speed, and enhances overall infrastructure provisioning.

Icon for unique high availability Unique high availability

Unique high availability

The ability of ArubaOS-CX to maintain a synchronous state across dual control planes allows a unique high- availability solution called Aruba Virtual Switching Extension (VSX). VSX is delivered through redundancy gained by deploying two chassis with an inter-switch link, with each chassis maintaining its independent control.

Icon for increased visibility and control Increased visibility and control

Increased visibility and control

Aruba AIOps offers real-time, network-wide visibility with analytics in every switch. Aruba’s next-generation AI uniquely combines network and user-centric analytics to not only identify and inform staff of anomalies, but also apply decades of networking expertise to analyze and provide prescriptive actions with greater than 95% accuracy.
