Ask the expert: Virtual Port Channel on Nexus– Configuration, Best Practices & More

08-22-2016 12:45 PM PST thru 09-02-2016 09:45 PM PST

This topic is a chance to discuss more about VPC configuration, best practices and troubleshooting. vPC is a virtualization technology that presents both Cisco Nexus family paired devices as a unique Layer 2 logical node to access layer devices or endpoints. A virtual port channel (vPC) allows links that are physically connected to two different Cisco Nexus devices to appear as a single port channel to a third device. The third device can be a switch, server, or any other networking device that supports link aggregation technology. A vPC can provide Layer 2 multipathing, which allows you to create redundancy by increasing bandwidth, enabling multiple parallel paths between nodes and load-balancing traffic where alternative paths exist.
