Huge collection of supported free apps in Play Store. Supports a wide range of devices. Extremely customizable. Available for mobile and tablet devices, even for desktops and virtual machines.

Cisco NX-OS

Cisco NX-OS is designed to run on data centre switches, and for me the key benefit is the ability to merge Ethernet and fire channel management into a single switch hence reducing cabling and management. However we don't require fibre channel at present so these are just being used for the fact they offer 10GbE on every port, which is still a useful feature in the data centre core.Given we don't use the fibre channel features, having to learn the difference in commands from iOS is a little frustrating at times.

Cisco NX-OS

  • Stability of the software (in the early days).
  • Lacks some of the features of regular IOS.
  • The command syntax is sometimes just that little bit different from iOS, causing issues for automation, scripting, etc.

NX-OS has many similarities with the traditional IOS which is quite beneficial when it comes to configuration and learning. As a native Linux system, there are a lot of tools and features that can be enabled for any use case.

Our switches running NX-OS have provided solid consistent throughput. We haven't had any issues with it not being able to handle what we threw at it. The latency is extremely low. It also has multiple management options that we hope to pursue in the future.

There have been only two times that I have needed to contact Android support for technical issues and both times I received some support. I received more helpful tips from Youtube, so I now bypass support and try to do most of our troubleshooting on my own with these support videos online.

Cisco support never fails me. In terms of timely response, no one is on par with them. They really value the impact of having technical issues and potential business stoppage. Also, their support staff are well equipped with knowledge and skills and easily resolve the most common incidents. Most of the time, we can resolve an issue by just calling them once.

Alternatives Considered

Android

Android allows users to customize their systems. It is very simple to use and there are a lot of devices running it. The interface has been improving a lot since Android Lollipop and it has been becoming more useful.For developers, Android gives more possibilities and the license for distributing your app is cheaper than the Apple Software Developer Program.

Cisco NX-OS

We studied the solutions from both vendors but we went for Cisco because it's powerful out of the box and has great support. It's also easy to find knowledge and support communities, and we already had a relationship with Cisco.

Security is something I know Cisco take seriously and there are many security features across all their devices. I don't think features like zero-trust are enabled by default though, so it does require reading the relevant guide and applying commands that suit your environment which can mean the implementation is not always as robust as intended.
