Now it’s easier to deploy cloud network services for the virtualized data center infrastructure. The Cisco Nexus 1100 Series Cloud Services Platform (CSP) offers a dedicated hardware platform that simplifies management and compliance, and improves performance.
The Cisco Nexus 1100 Series Cloud Services Platform (CSP) offers customers several benefits, including:
When placing management and control path elements, such as the Cisco Nexus 1000V Virtual Supervisor Module (VSM), on the CSP, you can manage policies separately from virtualization administrators. This makes it easier to attain compliance and audit requirements, and reduce administrative errors.
Offloading the VSM to a dedicated platform can deliver scalability and performance improvements to the virtualized data center infrastructure.
