My experience with Cisco NX-OS dates back to about five years ago, using it to prevent network outages and optimization of networks. My team uses the software to gain visibility into network data and ASIC telemetry. We have integrated Cisco NX-OS with other DevOps automation tools to simplify all NX-OS programming.

This Cisco NX-OS switches were used as main switches by my client. It solved the business points like providing high performance in its job. EIGRP and VXLAN were configured on these without slowing down their performance. This NX-OS operating system run switches are mature enough and these NX-OS switches run for long durations without any issues.

Cisco NX-OS is used on some Nexus switches in our datacenter. These switches connect to both blade enclosures and individual servers, all of which contain virtual machines. The Nexus switches have the ability to connect to servers with 10GbE and can also converge Ethernet and FibreChannel on a single cable hence simplifying the data centre layout.

Cisco NX-OS is being used on core Nexus switches to tie together closets as well as tie in VM infrastructure. It is being used across the organization. Cisco NX-OS provides resilience to our infrastructure, because we have all closets tied into both Nexus switches. It also provides VPCs which are helpful with resilience.

We are using Cisco NX-OS for the operating system of our Nexus switches. We are using it for multiple purposes, one of them as a Data Center core switch, which is used to connect all our servers, storage, and systems. We also use it as a core switch for remote sites.

Cisco NX-OS is used as the component of Fabric Interconnect in the Cisco UCS solution in our organization. The UCS is a core of infrastructure where unified communications services are hosted. The services that are running on top of the NX-OS are used across the whole organization. The main business problem solved is a single point of management and maintenance for the systems hosted on top of the NX-OS.

We used Cisco NX-OS on our various Cisco Nexus 7000, 5000, 4000, and 1000V deployments. It is being used globally or across the whole organization. It resolves the following business problems we have:
1. Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) - for centralization and administration of our connected departments.
2. Virtual PortChannel - we required to have Layer 2 multipathing without changing the existing deployments.
3. Software compatibility - we needed to have flexibility with other network OS.

Cisco NX-OS is being utilized by our customers as a CORE Switch on their organization. We deploy it via VPC to be able to have redundancy on the links. It addresses the problems of high traffic aggregated to your internal networks. Our customers are currently using Nexus 7000 but are currently migrating to Nexus 9000 because some N7K are now EOL.
