Cisco’s Most Innovative Data Center Switches with Cloud Scale Technology
Based on Gartner, vendors will ship almost 8.5 billion connected “things” to users and companies in 2017 and that the total spending on these endpoints and services will reach almost $2 trillion. Amidst this digital transformation, your data center infrastructure is the backbone of your business and key ingredient for success. But what if I told you most of the off-the-shelf switches are similar? This is because most data center switches in the market are based on the same Merchant silicon with limited differentiation, and hence, little room for innovation.
Cisco wants to make sure that you are ready for the digital transformation tsunami. This tsunami is about having the performance and scale combined with intelligence to hand a large scale of applications that will bombard the data center in the form of microservices and containers. To fulfill this promise, Cisco brings you a new generation of Nexus 9000 data center switches powered by the Cloud Scale ASIC technology. The Cloud Scale ASIC is designed from the ground up by our best engineers, and is deployed across the Cisco Nexus 9200 , Nexus 9300-EX , and Nexus 9500 modular switches.
One may think, a custom ASIC doesn’t mean better solution. But I am going to prove to you that “different is better” when it comes to the competitive advantages of Nexus 9000 switches with Cloud Scale ASIC.
