  • I mean, they do really well with setting up connections between each other. It gives quick, just gives all the speed they have, the bandwidth throughput, et cetera.
  • I don't know.

  • API
  • Commit feature is hard to use and not explained properly on the website. Not all commands are valid, deploying configurations in NX-OS should allow for commits and rollback in an easy format. In this area, Juniper does a better job and allows to avoid mistakes or wrong config deployment with commit and rollback feature

  • Relatively stable and feature rich
  • Different form factor to meet different connectivity requirements
  • API-driven and easily integrate with Bank automation pipeline
  • In service software upgrade and / or reliable maintenance mode (GIR)
  • Less high-impact software bugs from bug scrubs
  • Longer period for so called "longlife" software version release for stability reasons

  • Well it runs its own NX iOS, which is iOS like, which I'm very familiar with. So it's easy to configure, there's lots of support for it, lots of documentation. I got to say I've never had a problem with it in three years. So it does pretty much everything well that we needed to do.
  • I can't think any off the top of my head.

  • Things that we really like about the Cisco Nexus products is that they are incredibly reliable. That's a big thing, right? As we're running the core of a system and they need to be up all the time and we need to have reliable not just reliable performance, but also high performance.
  • We want to have everything run as fast as it can run and they provide low latency, fast performance in our data center with, you know, high availability, high uptime, and that's what we need and that's what it does.
  • Well, I mean the Cisco Nexus products are high-end data center switches. They're not the easiest thing to configure. They have a lot of ins and outs you need to know about them. But you know, it's getting better with some of the newer products, but we're still running those out like Nexus Dashboard and ACL and things like that. But yeah, they're definitely not like, you know, not for the beginner to try and implement.

  • Favorable effects on traffic handling, good traffic segmentation, and seamless network integration.
  • The energy expenditure is minimal and favors us economically.
  • Now we have more benefits with our LAN network.
  • Downtime is over, we are now more productive and with great traffic segmentation.
  • It is an expensive product with a high learning curve to implement, so it is necessary to ask for help from the technical support service.

  • High speed dataswitching
  • Fairly easy to administer in CLI
  • Stable
  • Good looking ;-)
  • NX OS is way cooler than CatOS
  • Easier visual access to hardware information (MAC-addr / SN / PN, etc) Servers has a cool plastic label to be pulled out in the front to get essential information. Cisco has a label on top of chassis, which is impossible to see when installed in rack.
  • Ability to locate a certain switch - just like switchport beacon. Maybe flashing logo/hostname on front AND back when enabled.
  • Lower prices.
