Description
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series is capable of more than 15 terabits per second (Tbps) of switching capacity and offers market-leading Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet density. Built on a zero-service-loss hardware and software architecture, the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series offers the kind of high availability needed in a next-generation data center, in which virtualization increases the scope of downtime and Unified Fabric demands Fibre Channel-like availability to properly support storage services. The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series was built with manageability in mind and incorporate.
