We use dual Cisco Nexus 9500 Series Switches at the core of data centers for all east-west traffic as well as north-south. One switch is an A side device and one is a redundant B side device. These switches are responsible for all layer two switching out to the compute and storage cabinets as well as all the layer three routing inside the data center. I have virtual servers running in the compute and storage cabinets that are directly connect to the Cisco Nexus 9500 Series Switches.

We are implementing DC projects for different customers that use [Cisco] Nexus 9000 [Series] Switches. Both the technical department and presales department are using these switches. Since the switches are most of the time in ACI mode (there are some NXOS instances as well), there are several business problems [that] are being addressed: high availability of services, geo-redundancy, and lowering operational costs through the use of automation.

Cisco Nexus 7000 series switch is being used across the whole organization. It is one of our data center core switch. It provides core routing and fast switching functions for our data center services. All our services from email, DHCP, DNS, and SVIs to other services like web, app and DB pass through this switch.

In addition to purchasing a new switch, it is possible to completely expand desires or scales completely, so the modular configuration of the large switch is fair. We use these switches with the company's core switches and provide reliable performance and reliable performance that works properly. These switches are very strong and relatively long running that offers excessive performance.

We use the Cisco Nexus 9000 as the core router of our data center, which is the hub of the company. Besides being our main routers, they are also being utilized as the main switches in our data center. We have a pair for redundancy with 40-gigabit connections between. One business problem the Cisco Nexus 9000 helps resolve is to reduce the space use and power consumption in our data center. Migrating to it, allowed us to combine our core routers and core switching environment. We also wanted to take advantage of the Nexus' features and flexibility in our growing environment.

Use a Cisco Nexus 900 Series switch as the primary switch in your data center. I have used various functions like EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, etc. These switches are easy to configure compared to other families. The setup is simple but comprehensive, and since the vendor is Cisco, you can count on ongoing support throughout its lifetime. The high costs associated with purchasing Cisco products are a disadvantage.

It is a very necessary system for us since before the traffic management was very bad, although I am from the Human Resources department we decided to be part of the implementation because better results would be achieved if all the departments were totally soaked. The Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches have surprised us since they offer smooth navigation traffic. It is a scalable system, and they also have low power consumption, which generates positive economic results. It is excellent for CC environments, which allows better data integration, greater fluidity of very high traffic, ensures greater network connectivity, and very favorable results.

Implemented a multi-pod ACI design in order to provide active/active DC services for our critical applications. The Nexus 9Ks have performed admirably and efficiently for use cases, especially on 14.x/15.x versions of code. Having the underlying complexity of the VXLAN/COOP/MP-BGP/IS-IS fabric abstracted away has allowed us to focus on shaping - and implementing - the business policy instead. We also implemented Nexus 9Ks for the inter-pod network in NXOS mode.

We use Cisco Nexus 900 Series Switches in all our datacenters due to the heavy traffic that we pass through, both north-south and east-west, to consider lower families of switches such as Catalyst. We use Cisco ACI in conjunction with the Cisco Nexus 900 Series Switches flattening the network topology aiming towards an SDN (Software Defined Network) approach. I admit we are not using ACI the way we should in order to maximize the investment though.

We use Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in our data centers. They have provided stable switching functionality and have proven to be durable and stable long term. The configuration is simple but expansive, and with the vendor being Cisco, you can count on continued support for the entire length of life. The downside is the higher cost that is associated with purchasing Cisco products.

This is our core datacenter switch, and all our traffic routes through it for internal and external traffic. We have it installed as a dual switch, so we have redundancy and a backplane between the two switches. We use copper and fiber connections to get the best throughput possible out of it.

Cisco Nexus acts as the primary DC switch, that get integrated with other solutions, with the aim of data integration, connectivity, and standardization. Besides, Cisco Nexus handles very highly traffic database, with the accuracy and the sensitivity demanded. Cisco Nexus is a data center, where there is guarantee of quality screening, no redundancy, and there is articulate speedy performance. Cisco Nexus provides us with almost 120 GBPS Cores, which has 6 groups, that advances the performance.

Currently, we use a traditional three-layer architecture (core, access, and distribution), and our applications have increased by 50%, and east-west traffic increased considerably, so it was possible to detect that there is a high latency in communication between servers. [...] We found a solution and is to change our architecture to spine-leaf using the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series [Switches].

We use Cisco Nexus as [...] distribution, aggregation, and core switches. We use these switches across the globe in our pop to connect our inline devices. This helps us to manage our internal core infrastructure as we as build our cloud infrastructure. These switches provide us [with] high availability and redundant infrastructure for our core devices. Cisco Nexus [is] easy to build, manage, and implement. We get nice and quick support [from] Cisco.

Cisco Nexus is used to process invoices and purchase orders - this includes automatic workflow trees for the appropriate approvals. These can be approved, rejected, queried from within [Cisco] Nexus. [Cisco] Nexus is also used to run reports on the data stored within, such as payment records which is helpful when a set of data needs to be isolated for investigation.

Some time ago when our data center was made up of stand-alone physical servers and some virtualized servers, we had the need to have a solution of more powerful and robust Switches. This is why, for our main datacenter, we opted to use Nexus Switches as Top of Rack and increase the speed and performance levels towards 10Gbps and 40 Gbps speeds that a datacenter must operate at.

Cisco Nexus switches are being used within our organization as our data center core. This means that it handles all the highly valued traffic for development, production, quality assurance[,] and more. Cisco Nexus switches are a must in a data center environment where you need to guarantee traffic at particular speeds and reliability.

We're using Cisco Nexus platform on our primary and secondary datacenters on a leaf-spine architecture for about 6 years now.
Our need to increase the communication throughput on our Datacenter, between the datacenter equipments and also from datacenter to end-users, lead us to decide for this design / architecture.
We had some guidance from Cisco and from a local Cisco partner / channel during the implementation project.
We have Cisco Nexus 7k as our top of racks and 2 Cisco Nexus 9k as our datacenter's core. All the communication is redundant and we have at least 10Gb communication between all datacenter equipment.
