Product Overview

Organizations everywhere recognize that changing application environments are creating new demands for the IT infrastructure that supports them. Application workloads are deployed across a mix of virtualized and nonvirtualized server and storage infrastructure, requiring a network infrastructure that provides consistent connectivity, security, and visibility across a range of bare-metal, virtualized, and cloud computing environments:

Application instances are created dynamically. As a result, the provisioning, modification, and removal of application network connectivity needs to be dynamic as well.

Business units demand accelerated application deployments. IT departments have to provide shared IT infrastructure to address time-to-market needs and to increase their return on investment (ROI).

With organizations deploying a mix of custom, open source, and off-the-shelf commercial applications, IT departments must manage both security and quality of service (QoS) for environments that support multitenancy.

Applications have been transitioning over time to a less monolithic, scale-out, multinode model. IT infrastructure that supports this model must scale with the speed of business and support both 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.

The Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches include both modular and fixed-port switches that are designed to overcome these challenges with a flexible, agile, low-cost, application-centric infrastructure (ACI).

The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform consists of fixed-port switches designed for top-of-rack (ToR) and middle-of-row (MoR) deployment in data centers that support enterprise applications, service provider hosting, and cloud computing environments. The switches are Layer 2 and 3 nonblocking 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)-capable switches with up to 2.56 terabits per second (Tbps) of internal bandwidth.

With the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series, organizations can quickly and easily upgrade existing data centers to carry 40 Gigabit Ethernet to the aggregation layer or to the spine (in a leaf-and-spine configuration) through advanced and cost-effective optics that enable the use of existing 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber (a pair of multimode fiber strands). Please visit the Cisco 40GBASE QSFP modules data sheet for more details.

Cisco provides two modes of operation for the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series. Organizations can use Cisco® NX-OS Software to deploy the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series in standard Cisco Nexus switch environments. Organizations also can use a hardware infrastructure that is ready to support Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) to take full advantage of an automated, policy-based, systems management approach.

Features and Benefits

The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform switches are high-density, nonblocking, low-power-consuming switches designed for ToR, MoR, and end-of-row (EoR) deployment in enterprise data centers, service provider facilities, and large virtualized and cloud computing environments.

The platform offers industry-leading density and performance with flexible port configurations that can support existing copper and fiber cabling (Table 2).

Table 3 summarizes the features of the Cisco Nexus 9300 platform.

Table 3. Cisco Nexus 9300 Platform Switch Features

Feature

Benefit

Predictable high performance

Latency of 1 to 2 microseconds with up to 1.28 Tbps of bandwidth enables customers to build a robust switch fabric scaling from as few as 200 10-Gbps server ports to more than 200,000 10-Gbps server ports.

Increased integrated buffer space

Total of 50 MB of integrated shared buffer space allows better management of speed mismatch between access and uplink ports.

Designed for availability

Hot-swappable, redundant power supplies and fan trays increase availability.

Flexible airflow configuration

Port-side intake and port-side exhaust airflow configurations are both supported.

Power efficiency

All Cisco Nexus 9000 Series power supplies are 80 Plus Platinum rated.

Advanced optics

Cisco offers a pluggable 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ transceiver that enables customers to use existing 10 Gigabit Ethernet data center cabling to support 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. This technology facilitates adoption of 40 Gigabit Ethernet with no cable infrastructure upgrade cost.

Power and Cooling

The switches are designed to adapt to any data center hot-aisle and cold-aisle configuration. The switches can be installed with ports facing the rear, simplifying cabling of server racks by putting the ports closest to the servers they support. The switches can be installed with the ports facing the front, simplifying the upgrade of existing racks of switches in which network cables are wired to the front of the rack. The two deployment modes support front‑to‑back cooling through a choice of power supplies and fan trays designed with opposite airflow directions, denoted by red and blue tabs (Figure 7).

To enhance availability, the platform supports 1+1 redundant hot-swappable 80 Plus Platinum-certified power supplies and hot-swappable 2+1 redundant fan trays.

Figure 7. Cisco Nexus 9300 Platform Switch Components

Cisco Nexus 9300 Series Uplink Module

The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform requires an uplink module to be installed for normal switch operation. There are two uplink module options.

The Cisco Nexus M6PQ uplink module provides up to six QSFP+ ports for 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to servers or aggregation-layer switches (Figure 8). The uplink module provides six active ports when installed in the Cisco Nexus 93128TX, 9396TX, and 9396PX.

Figure 8. Cisco Nexus M6PQ 6-Port QSFP+ Uplink Card

The Cisco Nexus M12PQ uplink module provides up to 12 QSFP+ ports for 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to servers or aggregation-layer switches (Figure 9). As specified earlier in Table 2, the uplink module provides 8 active ports when installed in the Cisco Nexus 93128TX, and 12 active ports when installed in the Cisco Nexus 9396PX and 9396TX. The 40 Gigabit ports on the uplink module do not support the break-out mode of four 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, but they can be converted to a single 10 Gigabit Ethernet port with the QSFP-to-SFP QSA adapter.

Figure 9. Cisco Nexus M12PQ 12-Port QSFP+ Uplink Card

Deployment Scenarios

The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform is a versatile data center switching platform with switches that can operate as ToR data center switches, as MoR and EoR access-layer switches deployed with or without Cisco fabric extender technology, and as leaf switches in a horizontally scaled leaf-and-spine architecture.

Top-of-Rack Data Center Switch

The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform is designed for a ToR design, with increased port density, deep integrated buffer space, and performance.

With 48 fixed ports, the Cisco Nexus 9396PX and 9396TX have enough ports to support the densest 1RU server configurations. A pair of these switches can support redundant connectivity to each server in a rack with ports to spare. In the configuration shown in Figure 8, the 480-Gbps uplink capacity from each switch is sufficient to provide full 10-Gbps bandwidth to each server with no oversubscription.

The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform can support multiple racks (or pods) of dense 1RU servers. For example, the 96-port Cisco Nexus 93128TX can provide 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to all servers across two racks, with a pair of these switches providing full redundancy. In less dense configurations with 2RU servers, the Cisco Nexus 9300 platform can support even more racks of servers in an MoR configuration.

Figure 10. Cisco Nexus 9300 Platform Switch in ToR Configurations

End-of-Row Access-Layer Switch

In addition to being an excellent ToR switch, Cisco Nexus 9300 platform switches can be configured as MoR and EoR access-layer switches. They can connect to almost any blade or rack server through 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections including the following (Figure 9):

Third-party and standalone Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS®) rack servers

Third-party blade server chassis with chassis-resident switches or pass-through devices

Cisco UCS

The Cisco Nexus 9396PX and 9372PX can be used to connect both 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet-equipped fabric extenders, Cisco Nexus B22 Blade Fabric Extenders in Dell and HP blade chassis (not shown), and 10 Gigabit Ethernet-equipped servers and systems such as Cisco UCS. The Cisco Nexus 9396TX and 93128TX provide excellent connectivity for large numbers 10 Gigabit Ethernet-equipped blade or rack servers equipped with 10GBASE-T ports.

Figure 11. Cisco Nexus 9300 Platform Switches as EoR Access-Layer Switches with and without Cisco Fabric Extender Technology

Collapsed Access and Aggregation Layers

As Figure 10 shows, the Cisco Nexus 9300 platform supports Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders to establish a centrally managed yet physically distributed collapsed access- and aggregation-layer switch. Although each fabric extender resides physically at the top of each rack or within each blade server chassis, each device is handled as a remote line card of the Cisco Nexus 9300 platform switch, yielding massive scalability through flexible bandwidth oversubscription but with only a single point of management.

By using Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders at the top of each rack, organizations can reduce the cabling complexity, overall power consumption, and number of management points. This approach facilitates a “rack-and-roll” deployment model in which individual server racks can be prewired using ToR fabric extenders, with the only connections required to bring them into the data center being network uplink and power connections.

Figure 12. Collapsed Access and Aggregation Layers with Cisco Fabric Extenders

Leaf-and-Spine Architecture

Cisco Nexus 9300 platform switches are excellent choices for leaf switches in a leaf-and-spine architecture (Figure 11). The Layer 3 capabilities established by both Cisco Nexus 9500 and 9300 platforms enable the two to be used with Equal-Cost Multipath (ECMP) routing to accelerate the flow of traffic and reduce reconvergence time in the event of a failure. The degree of redundancy in a leaf-and-spine architecture delivers increased availability with a high level of flexibility in workload placement.

Cisco NX-OS Software Overview

Cisco NX-OS is a purpose-built data center operating system designed for performance, resiliency, scalability, manageability, and programmability at its foundation. Cisco NX-OS provides a robust and comprehensive feature set that meets the demanding requirements of virtualization and automation in present and future data centers.

The Cisco Nexus 9000 Series uses an enhanced version of Cisco NX-OS Software with a single binary image that supports every switch in the series, simplifying image management. The operating system is modular, with a dedicated process for each routing protocol, a design that isolates faults while increasing availability. In the event of a process failure, the process can be restarted without losing state. The operating system supports In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU), hot and cold patching, and online diagnostics.

Main features include the following:

Power-On Auto Provisioning (POAP) automates the process of upgrading software images and installing configuration files on Cisco Nexus switches that are being deployed in the network for the first time.

Intelligent API (iAPI) provides operators with a way to manage the switch through remote procedure calls (RPCs; JavaScript Object Notation [JSON] or XML) over HTTP/HTTPS infrastructure.

Patching allows Cisco NX-OS to be upgraded and patched without any interruption in switch operations.

Line-rate overlay support provides Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) bridging and routing at full line rate, facilitating and accelerating communication between virtual and physical servers as well as between multiple data centers in a campus environment.

Cisco NX-OS Features and Benefits

The software packaging for the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series offers flexibility and a comprehensive feature set while being consistent with Cisco Nexus access switches. The default system software has a comprehensive Layer 2 security and management feature set and base level Layer 3 feature set. To enable advanced Layer 3 IP unicast and IP multicast routing functions, you must install additional licenses. Table 4 lists the software packaging and licensing available to enable advanced features.
