How was the initial setup?

The initial installation is pretty straightforward, it takes approximately an hour. When you start with the configuration and moving forward from there, which is not only a matter of technical configuration or the key component but the integration into the environment, this can take several hours.

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

The solution is expensive.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise others before implantation this solution to study. There are some big changes in respect to the previous concept of networking. There is a learning curve that needs to be considered.

I rate Cisco Nexus an eight out of ten.
