Cisco Nexus Review

A flexible and feature-rich solution that is easy to integrate and use

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for this solution is enterprise networking.

How has it helped my organization?

The ease of integration with existing systems has been helpful.

What is most valuable?

This is a very feature-rich solution, but the most valuable feature is flexibility.

The interface is as user-friendly as you can make it.

What needs improvement?

There are too many different model numbers and too much complexity. The Nexus 9K, for example, came from a family of twenty offerings.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a very stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of this solution is very good.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support for this solution is very good.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Based on client demand, which was moving towards software-defined networking, the Nexus 9000 was the next step. We used the prior generation, Catalyst, before this.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of this solution is fairly straightforward. It is very user-friendly.

What was our ROI?

The return on investment for this solution is very good. It is very practical and versatile.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not have other vendors on our shortlist.

What other advice do I have?

This is a very good product, although it would be nice to restrict the number of offerings. My suggestion is to evaluate ACI, SDN, and the Nexus 9000.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Reseller.
