Cisco switches running on NX-OS provided high security. Expanding the network with these switches was a breeze. It was easy to use to configure VPN. This switch provides good throughput and good reliability. NX-OS run switches are good for medium to high-sized businesses.

We are using the infrastructure Nexus 7K -> Nexus 5K -> Nexus 2K in our datacenter for all our customers. It's working really fine. The performance [is] really good, and the scalability is nice too. For instance, if you want to move from 10 Giga speed to 40 or 100, you just have to buy new line cards and put [them] inside the chassis. As well, ISSU upgrade is very handy for OS upgrade.

We run NX-OS on 3548s and 5548s as that is the only firmware option available. Given that we are not utilising the fibre channel features I am not sure this is a benefit since all other switches run iOS or iOS-XE. I was not involved in the original purchase so I cannot comment why these were deployed in the network.

This has allowed us to add more wiring closets without worrying about if our core will be able to handle it. Cisco also provides equipment that is highly available and secure. We also know that we can contact TAC with any issues that may arise. We've found TAC to be useful when we did have an outage. They were responsive to help us.

Cisco NX-OS switches are connecting to Sophos XG firewalls and to Cisco Catalyst 9500 switches, which are the building blocks for our network inside HQ and DC. This solution gives us the connectivity and speed needed for our applications and handles user needs with fast response in a secure way.

NX-OS is Good but not Great

Our network is a multi-vendor network design so we have to integrate the Cisco NX-OS switches into our code devices from Juniper. We have not observed any compatibility issues in integration. Overall NX-OS switches are good to integrate with other vendor devices since it supports multiple features like lldp and all active routing protocols.
