Cisco Nexus Review

Offers valuable user configurability and good support

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for the Cisco Nexus solution is network connectivity.

How has it helped my organization?

It's based on the Cisco line of products, so a lot of people are trained with them.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is user configurability.

What needs improvement?

In the next release of this solution, Cisco should keep trending on ease-of-use, with more human or regular language and commands.

Maybe they could add some machine learning and AI integration. Ease-of-use and making things more human-readable is most important.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Cisco Nexus is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is very scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The Cisco Nexus technical support is very good.

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

We needed to invest in a new solution because of speed. We used older versions of Cisco Cloud. The reason why we switched was just adapting with the times.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward with the right training. Search out there, find a lot of knowledge before you begin.

What about the implementation team?

I did the setup myself.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The license on a yearly basis is $200,000.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Cisco was on the shortlist with Extreme and Juniper. We chose Cisco because there was integration with other Cisco equipment in the data center.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to 10, I would rate Cisco Nexus an eight to nine.
