We have configured the Virtual Switching System (VSS) feature of this switch which clusters two switches and thus can be seen as a single switch to the network. This is advantageous in terms of simplifying the network and also adds high-availability by increasing the forwarding capacity while increasing availability by eliminating Spanning Tree loops.

We have not benefited from automation or virtualization much as we just haven't used them. But we have benefited from the analytics and being able to get good data flow information. We can get nice and easy reports generated from the system by using standard industry analytics tools and tying that into the 6800.

I don't see a whole lot of time saving in the automation department, as we really don't use that feature of see much of a need as its the only core switch we have. Same with virtualization, as the only thing virtual about this is the VM's that connect through it. Analytics on the other hand are super helpful and we get alot of useful information of the 6800 from our Cisco DNA system.

We have benefited from automation by using a network management and monitoring service (Solarwinds) with our Cisco [Catalyst] 6800 [Series Switches] and other Cisco switches and routers. It allows us to monitor them, keep backups of all configs, and manage updates/patches. We can also push configs to all supported devices. That automation has been a huge help for us and time saver.

With NetFlow and firmware control centrally located we now can have one pane of glass to go to for data and analytics. When we upgrade the core 6880's all of the edge switches are also automatically upgraded to be at the same code revision creating a stable and consistent environment.
