1- which one is less depended

1- which one is less depended to vcenter, if my vcenter died suddenly my network just blow up?

Answer; N1kv has more features than vDs. but again think of the license. 

If vcenter died nothing would happen you will just loose the managebility of the device through it were in all other things would be working fine.

2- which one is reliable and easy to manage?

Both are okay.

3- which one give my environment most features with less cost.

Cost again it depends more features high cost.

4- what about supporting of this two

yes it supports both.

Thanks for your replying

Thanks for your replying insharie

but with vmware vDS when the vcenter goes down, switching network stops responding,

i finally implement N1kv in my environment and using basic, free version. i just shut down vCenter to see what happened if it goes down and no interrupting , Nexus 1000v is great Product,

 

Thanks

Server folks prefer VMware DVS, which is (was) much easier to install and configure than N1k; network folks perfer N1k for obvious reasons; with the newer versions it got much easier with the installer to do the installation (L3 as the default made troubleshooting easier).

thanks wdeyin my experience ,

thanks wdey

in my experience , N1KV is very simple and easy to use, and more stable, and in perspective of networking , its better network team manage networking than virtual environment team,
