The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches combine the highest levels of scalability with operational flexibility. The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches comprise a modular data center-class product line designed for highly scalable 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks with a fabric architecture that scales beyond 15 terabits per second (Tbps). Designed to meet the requirements of the most mission-critical data centers, it delivers continuous system operation and virtualized, pervasive services. The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series is based on a proven operating system, with enhanced features to deliver real-time system upgrades with exceptional manageability and serviceability. Its innovative design is purpose built to support end-to-end data center connectivity, consolidating IP, storage, and interprocess communication (IPC) networks onto a single Ethernet fabric.
For data centers and LAN cores that require the best in infrastructure scalability, Cisco Nexus 7000 can provide support for consolidated networks with virtual port channel innovations to scale beyond 1500 ports. Cisco Nexus 7000 uses the multicore, multi-threaded NX-OS to optimize CPU resources and offload tasks to processors distributed across the chassis modules. Cisco Nexus 7000 also features Cisco Trusted Security (TrustSec) for scalable security with link-layer encryption, security group access control lists, and role-based access control. Cisco Nexus 7000 also offers transport flexibility, providing a foundation for unified fabrics with Cisco DCE, unified I/O, and FCoE. Virtualized control plane and data plane forwarding on Nexus 7000 provides performance, virtual device contexts (VDCs) maximize software and hardware resource utilization while providing strong security and software fault isolation.
