Generally, Nexus 3000 Series Simplify management, increase network visibility and improve monitoring.

Now days data centers need high performance, enhanced programmability, less power consumed devices, continual system availability and require response to their ever-changing business needs. To meet these challenges, Nexus 3000 series switches provides following benefits:

  • Single Architecture across data center for speed from 100M, 1G, 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G and 100G.
  • Support for underlay as well as overlay technologies such as VXLAN.
  • Provides Low Latency platform for HPC, HFT environments.
  • Provides platform for Object model program and capabilities to support known Linux/server tools not limited to tshark, Guest Shell, Chief and Puppet.
  • massively scalable data center (MSDC), and cloud networks.

Cisco Nexus Licenses

Simplify management nexus 3000

Cisco Embedded Event Manager, Python scripts, touchless boot and configuration, Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager, XML management tools, and advanced reboot features are included. Use Cisco Nexus Data Broker for visibility and monitoring.

Open programmability

DevOps automation tools (Puppet, Chef, Ansible, etc.) are built in. NX-API offers a common programming approach across switches. Python scripts, Bash shell, and Linux containers support customer applications. OpenStack and OpenFlow support SDN.

Scalability and high performance

Achieve multitenant scalability with VXLAN support. Cisco bidirectional support simplifies migration to 40 Gigabit Ethernet. Algo Boost and Warp mode on Cisco Nexus 3500 Series Switches provide the lowest latency in the industry.

High availability and efficiency

Fault isolation is supported by Modular Cisco NX-OS Software. Switches benefits redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fan modules. Shared buffer space handles microbursts, regular data traffic flow, and jitter for increased network efficiency.

Cisco Nexus 3000 License 

Cisco Nexus 3000 switch license can be implemented by using traditional and smart licensing.

You can see the differences in the below chart:  

Description  Traditional Licensing  Smart Software Licensing  
License instance node locked to the product instance  Yes  No  
Product registration upon configuration  No  Yes  
Offers tools to report, monitor, own, and consume No  Yes  
Requires Smart Call Home  No  Yes 

 

Cisco Nexus 3000 Smart License 

As Cisco has introduced its Smart Licensing method for vast range of devices. Cisco 3000 switches smart license is now available for these devices and all product instances should be activated by registering 3K switches into Cisco Smart Service Management website through specific smart account. However, by purchasing Cisco 3000 switches PLR smart license all instances would be enabled once and forever.
