We are using it for the data center. We have its latest version.

What is most valuable?

Its low latency is most valuable. Its performance is good, and it is also very stable.

What needs improvement?

The operating system needs to be improved. There should be stability in the operating system, and it should not have as many vulnerabilities.

I have been using this solution for ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We do it ourselves. We have about four admins for deployment and maintenance.

It is very expensive. Its licensing is on a yearly basis.

We didn't evaluate other options.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. Cisco is a good vendor to work with.

I would rate Cisco Nexus an eight out of ten.
