Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Nexus

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.
  • High level throughput
  • Very stable and robust
  • Good performance
  • Expensive support cost
  • High learning curve
  • Complicated licensing model
  • High bandwidth y speed ports
  • High availability and continuity of operation
  • Support and follow-up of cases
  • High equipment costs
  • Expensive Subscription and Support Contracts
  • Some limitations by licensing model
When comparing Cisco Nexus with other alternatives, the high levels of performance, port density and high speeds met the criticality levels required for the correct operation of our main and secondary data centers, all operating in high availability.

On the other hand, the great Cisco ecosystem has full compatibility with the different appliances that make up the network, firewalls, balancers, wan optimizers, they have certified Nexus to have full integration of different solutions, this gives us greater confidence in the solution.

Cisco Nexus provides a solution to connect your data center that is very reliable and solid. During our years of use with this equipment we have not had major problems such as service stops or network drops. Before any hardware problems [occured], the support quickly provided us with an RMA for replacement, five stars definitely.
