Cisco Nexus 7000
Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches provide the foundation for Cisco® Unified Fabric. They are a modular data center-class product line designed for highly scalable 1/10/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet networks with a fabric architecture that scales beyond 17 terabits per second (Tbps). Designed to meet the requirements of the most mission-critical data centers, the switches deliver continuous system operation and virtualized, pervasive services.
Get top-of-rack, Layer 2 and 3 switching.
- Simplified Operations: Cisco Embedded Event Manager, Python scripts, touchless boot and configuration, Cisco Data Center Network Manager, XML management tools, and advanced reboot features are included. Use Cisco Nexus Data Broker for visibility and monitoring
- Open Programmability: DevOps automation tools (Puppet, Chef, Ansible, etc.) are built in. NX-API offers a common programming approach across switches. Python scripts, Bash shell, and Linux containers support customer applications. OpenStack and OpenFlow support SDN
- Scalability & High Performance: Get multitenant scalability with VXLAN support. Cisco bidirectional support simplifies migration to 40 Gigabit Ethernet. AlgoBoost and Warp mode on Cisco Nexus 3500 Series Switches provide one of the lowest latency rates in the industry
