  • Since moving to these for our core data center switches, we don't have to worry about problems that they may have. They just get the job done, day in and out. You don't have to worry about whether the switch is functional tomorrow, they just simply work. For me, that's big on the ROI scale.
  • Expandability is excellent, as we've grown, these switches have grown with us. No need to do a forklift upgrade to get new compute and storage cabinets up and running. When we've needed to add a new compute and storage cabinet, we buy the parts and connect them to these existing cores, add a little code, and we are in business. Another soft dollar amount when it comes to thinking about ROI, you can buy cheaper switches, but you would be hard-pressed to find better.
  • As we've needed to add more features to the core network, these have allowed us to add those features and keep the business moving. For example, we needed to put some VACLs in place to control east-west traffic, so we quickly wrote some code, applied it to the switches, and it was that easy - we were done.

  • It reduced our cost for colocation space at the data center due to its modular feature that supports virtualization using virtual device contexts.
  • NXOS Checkpoint and Rollback feature helped us a lot during times when we had configuration errors and needed to rollback changes.
  • The Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) feature made our SAN implementation easier.

  • A positive ROI from the Nexus 9000 is cost reduction. We moved from a 2 core and 2 aggregation layer to just the 2 Nexus 9000 in our data center.
  • Another ROI is the increase of efficiency. We don't have to distinguish between FastEthernet, gigabit ethernet, or ten-gigabit ethernet when configuring the Nexus 9000, they are all ethernet.
  • Furthermore, another ROI is its reliability and stability. We have run our set of Nexus 9000 for over 5 years and have not had any hardware issues.
  • Lastly, the features of the Nexus 9000 are another positive ROI. The ability to utilize vPC, FCoE, 40 gigabits, etc. gives us options to accommodate future business needs.

  • We expected the switches to provide ROI and they did as advertised.
  • NX-OS was pretty similar to IOS so the learning curve was pretty low.
  • Being a Non-Profit we need to be extremely cost conscience and buy gear that has a long shelf life. Nexus line of switches met this objective.

  • These switches are really special to us as we improved performance. The implementation was hybrid and it was challenging for us at first but with the help of the support team. We improved the whole process. Low power consumption is a great advantage since it reduces costs and increases bandwidth. It really is a system of professional switches that allow maximum workflow.

  • Hard to quantify ROI only based on switches but it certainly enables large migrations (on-prem and to the cloud), which is part of our larger IT strategy.
  • It also brings in DC SDN in conjunction with applications and additional infrastructure, enabling additional automation and monitoring potentially lowering TCO.
