Nexus 9000 Series

Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Nexus

Use a Cisco Nexus 900 Series switch as the primary switch in your data center. I have used various functions like EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, etc. These switches are easy to configure compared to other families. The setup is simple but comprehensive, and since the vendor is Cisco, you can count on ongoing support throughout its lifetime. The high costs associated with purchasing Cisco products are a disadvantage.
  • Extremely scalable.
  • Integration with the network is very good.
  • Cost is high.
  • First time setup is tiresome.
  • Positive ROI as I have seen fast switching and improved productivity.

It is the leader in data center switches and I can say that managing the required traffic throughput is essential for any large enterprise. In addition, Cisco support is industry-leading, always very useful with hardware or software issues, and well worth the extra cost.
