When to recommend Nexus 9000

New application architectures

If your customers are upgrading their servers with the latest networking technologies, such as 25/50 G connectivity, they need a 10/25/50/100 Gigabit Ethernet switching access layer to keep up with the servers, storage requirements, increasing virtualisation density and to support more powerful applications and workloads.

Implementing or upgrading applications

If your customers are upgrading applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Oracle Database, SAP, collaboration tools (video, white boarding) and big data analytics.

The dashboard provides a unified view into proactive operations with continuous assurance and actionable insights across data centre fabrics for seamless management. Incorporates Nexus Insights, Network Assurance and Multi-Site Orchestrator, as well as seamless access to network controllers, third-party tools and cloud-based services.

ACI/NX-OS software for data centre switches

Cisco Nexus 9000 switches can operate in Cisco NX-OS Software mode and also support Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI™) mode, making these switches ideal for traditional or fully automated data centre deployments as they support multiple architectural choices.

Cisco ACI enables policy driven automation for data centre networks and fabrics. Cisco NX-OS is the most extensive and open network OS to help automate and manage the modern data centre.

  • ACI is supported by Cisco Data Centre Networking (DCN) software
  • ACI software licences are available in three- and five-year terms
  • Available in Essential, Advantage and Premier
