When compared to these data center switches, I think Cisco Nx-OS based data center switches fare very well in terms of performance and reliability. When looking and talking about security, Cisco and Juniper Junos are comparable but Huawei switches lag in terms of security due to various reasons like who owns and controls them.

Cisco NX-OS is very well suited for datacenter environment. It's more powerful, more scalable, and more reliable than all the other Catalyst switch families. Even if it's a bit more expensive when you buy it and you need to learn a bit [about] the specificity, it's a must-have in your organization.

I am much more familiar with the commands in Cisco IOS as it has been around for many more years. I know why NX-OS is a different system and can see the benefits of the fibre channel integration, but I do not understand why the commands had to use a different syntax. With the Nexus switches you don't get a choice of operating system unfortunately.

Cisco NX-OS is more advantageous in terms of return-of-investment, built-in functionalities, regular updates or patches, and security compliance. Competitors mentioned for sure lack one or two items that I stated that Cisco NX-OS has. Also, very notable is the good after-sales support in which competitors need more improvement in comparison to Cisco NX-OS.
