Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Nexus Series Switches

We are implementing DC projects for different customers that use [Cisco] Nexus 9000 [Series] Switches. Both the technical department and presales department are using these switches. Since the switches are most of the time in ACI mode (there are some NXOS instances as well), there are several business problems [that] are being addressed: high availability of services, geo-redundancy, and lowering operational costs through the use of automation.
  • VPC
  • Low latency
  • Rest API
  • Telemetry
  • Less bugs
It is clear that [Cisco] Nexus 9000 [Series] Switches are built for DC, with specific features and hardware for DC, while Catalyst 9300 is a campus switch.
