The Nexus 7000 is not shipping yet, although FCS is expected this quarter.

The Nexus 7000 will support Virtual Port Channels (vPC) in the next major software release. This provides the same capability to spread a Etherchannel across two physical Nexus 7000's, as you can do today with VSS on a Catalyst 6500.

However the only difference will be that each Nexus 7000 will maintain its own independent control plane (no merging of config files like VSS).

So you will get the same killer app as VSS (multi-chassis Etherchannel) on Nexus 7000 probably before the end of the calendar year.

Hope this helps.

How about the Nexus 5020 is that currently available? And does anyone have any experience with these?
