Cisco Nexus Review

Helps us with troubleshooting and uptime management in keeping a healthy network but needs better granularity

What is our primary use case?

We use Cisco Nexus primarily to check the health of our links. We use it to make sure if our links are good or not. It really helps with troubleshooting.

How has it helped my organization?

Cisco Nexus has improved the way our organization functions through the troubleshooting. We had issues where we've seen our links saturated. We were able to determine what was being processed on the link. 

It has reduced the complexity of our network monitoring because I'm able to drill down quickly and figure out what's going on. 

It has helped us make sure that we have the best uptime that we can have.

What was our ROI?

We have seen ROI based on the fact that we have more uptime.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this product a seven because it's helped out a lot in terms of troubleshooting.
