Cisco Nexus Review

Provides a flexible connection to a server that enables us to easily handle a server when it goes down

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for Cisco Nexus is for storage.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps for data servers.

What is most valuable?

It provides a very flexible connection to a server. When you go into history and the VPC, it provides a very flexible connection from it. Once a server goes down I can handle it easily. So the network actually keeps quality even if onsite it is down.

What needs improvement?

There is some room for improvement when it comes to the frequency on the network.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using Cisco Nexus 9000 for two months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I don't work in security so I do not deal with this subject. I just make the network available. I think it's probably good. From the networking point of view, we just provide them the network that is going to be Cisco 9000, but they are using the servers. I have not gotten any complaints. We just deployed less than two months ago.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very good. I really like the way Cisco handles support. I am building this 9000 network. I had a lot of issues because of the vast complications you find setting up a network. I knew I could get help from Cisco.

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

We switched to 400G. We provide 100G on our network. I needed something which can carry 100, so next time this has that option. That is the reason we went with this partner.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

As a customer of Cisco, we always have had meetings with them on their new products. We tell them what kind of solution we are looking for and Cisco says for this solution you need this kind of thing.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product. It does not give me any headaches. That is the best thing. There are lots of products, but when you use this, it does not give you any headaches.

It is good because when we went to purchase this, we did not have all the information and knowing that there are a lot of options with all those differences, we had some issues, but it is obvious that this solution is going to do everything that we need. That is fine.
