Comprehensive Network Virtual Services Platform
The Cisco Nexus 1100 Series Virtual Services Appliances offer dedicated hardware platforms for the deployment of network services critical to virtualized data center infrastructure.
Features and Capabilities
The Cisco Nexus 1100 Series appliance offers customers several benefits, a few of which are highlighted below.
Simplified Management and Compliance
Placing management and control path elements, such as the Cisco Nexus 1000V Virtual Supervisor Module (VSM) on the Cisco Nexus 1100 Series Virtual Services Appliance allows you to manage policies separately from virtualization administrators. This makes it easier to attain compliance and audit requirements, and to reduce administrative errors.
Offloading the VSM to a dedicated appliance can deliver scalability and performance improvements to the virtualized data center infrastructure.
Accurate Network Statistics
A virtual services platform close to, but not resident within, the virtualization infrastructure permits a virtual-machine-aware solution such as the Cisco Network Analysis Module to gain accurate network statistics directly from data sources. That includes virtual ports.
The following services are available for the Cisco Nexus 1100 Series Virtual Services Appliance:
- Cisco Nexus 1000V Virtual Supervisor Module
- Cisco Virtual Security Gateway providing trusted multitenant access with granular, zone-based, and context-aware security policies
- Cisco Network Analysis Module providing accurate network statistics directly from virtual ports and other data sources
- Cisco Data Center Network Manager providing VM-aware path analytics and performance monitoring, offering simplified management of virtualized data centers
