Nexus 6001 for small DC as a collapsed core/distribution instead of 4500X

Hi,

I am looking for a switch platform for a small DC that can provide high density 10G and good L3 performance. I was thinking of Nexus 6001 as L3 performance is better thant 5548/5596 and it supports FabricPath. Than I have also looked at the 4500X but I think that it is more a campus switch than a DC switch. Moreover I would like to get rid of Spanning Tree ;-)

My last concern is what is the difference in the buffer capacity (when talking 10G to 1G conversion) when comparing the Nexus 6001 to the CAT4500X?

Thanks in advance,

Regards,

Laurent
