Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches are very well suited for a DC environment

Dell PowerConnect Switches

These Dell [PowerConnect Switches] will perform great on almost every scenario, that's no lie at all. On the other hand, they are expensive and if you have a small company or little to invest, they are not the best option. The model I worked with on my research paper is not the best out there, but performed great on all stress and comparisons made.

Dell PowerConnect Switches

  • Precarious graphical (GUI) mode, needing to be updated for more efficient technologies such as HTML5
  • Short support time, given how much these devices support in terms of use. I have owned the devices for years, but no longer have a warranty

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches

It is clear that Nexus 9000 switches are built for DC, with specific features and hardware for DC, while Catalyst 9300 is a campus switch.

Dell PowerConnect Switches

Dell PowerConnect Switches offer much better value for money than Cisco and a similar interface for deployment and management. They are interoperable and compatible with all open networking standards so will work with other vendors equipment. They also offer some unique hardware offerings such as 12 port 10GBe switches which is useful in smaller environments
