Nexus 7k

I know the Nexus is still very new but does anyone have any feed back?

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

Re: Nexus 7k

Does anyone know why the Nexus 7000 does not support virtual switching: multiple physical switches per virtual switch?

Re: Nexus 7k

Hello,

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.

Re: Nexus 7k

Hi,

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

Thanks!

Re: Nexus 7k

Hi,

FCS on the Nexus 5020 was a few weeks ago, as posted here:

I haven't personally seen it yet, but maybe others here have...
