Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switch by Cisco
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switch is designed for 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks and is built to be robust enough to handle the needs of a data center on a day- to-day basis. The Switch, which falls in line with Cisco's Data Center 3.0 vision, is made to be scalable and meet the needs of continuous systems operation. The Nexus runs Cisco's latest data center operating system, the Cisco Nexus Operating System, or NX-OS.
Currently the Nexus 7000 Series scales beyond 15 terabits per second with capabilities to handle 40Gb and 100Gb Ethernet and unified fabric I/O modules. Cisco has said the Nexus 7000 can perform fast enough to download 90,000 Netflix movies in less than 39 seconds or send a high-resolution two megapixel photo to everyone on earth in 28 minutes. Cisco also says the Nexus 7000 can cut power consumption in the data center by around 8 percent.
