Cisco Nexus Review

A reliable product that has helped to modularize our data center

What is our primary use case?

This solution is used as a switch in our data center.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has made our environment more modular.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is its reliability.

What needs improvement?

The technical support for this solution needs to be improved.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is pretty good with respect to stability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is not very good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using this solution, we used Avaya switches. We experienced some hardware failures so we wanted to get a more reliable product. This is why we changed to the Cisco Nexus line. We also wanted more modularity, because when a part failed with our previous solution, you had to replace the whole switch.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup for this solution is a bit complex. Not just anybody without the technical know-how can set it up.

What about the implementation team?

We had a specialist from Cisco Professional Services assist us with the implementation. Their service was all right.

What was our ROI?

The return on investment has been pretty good.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
