Cisco Nexus Review

A versatile platform with good durability

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for the Cisco Nexus solution is for the data center.

How has it helped my organization?

We have a much more stable network now using the Cisco Nexus.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the durability. 

What needs improvement?

Being this is the first usage, we don't have any expectations yet. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of this solution is very high.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the Cisco Nexus is very high.

How was the initial setup?

Cisco Nexus is more complex than your standard Catalyst. It's a whole different environment.

The development and the program configuration is not like what you're used to after doing Catalyst for 20 years. It has a little bit of a learning curve.

What about the implementation team?

We went from the manufacturer for the deployment. We worked directly with Cisco. Our experience with them was very good.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to 10, I would rate the product a 10 for the stability. The durability exceeded our expectations. 

Don't discard Cisco Nexus because of the price. Take a hard look at it. I would highly recommend it
