Cisco Nexus Family

Switching Designed for Your Data Center

The Cisco Nexus family of switches is designed to meet the stringent requirements of the next-generation data center. Not simply bigger or faster, these switches offer the following characteristics:

  • Infrastructure that can be scaled cost-effectively and that helps you increase energy, budget, and resource efficiency
  • Transport that can navigate the transition to 10 Gigabit Ethernet and unified fabric and can also handle architectural changes such as virtualization, Web 2.0 applications, and cloud computing.
  • Operational continuity to meet your need for an environment where system availability is assumed and maintenance windows are rare if not totally extinct.

All these switches use NX-OS Software, an operating system designed specifically for the data center and engineered for high availability, scalability, and flexibility.

Cisco Nexus 7000 Series

Modular switches with zero service loss architecture meet Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet needs and future unified fabric requirements.

Cisco Nexus 5000 Series

Rack switches deliver high-performance, low-latency 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Data Center Ethernet (DCE), and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) (Video - 12:06 min).
