Cisco Nexus 1000V switch for vSphere resources

David Davis David Davis Profile: David Davis

In my last post (VMware vSphere Launch and Resources), I covered the VMware vSphere launch. On the same day that vSphere was launched, Cisco launched their revolutionary new virtual network switch that integrates with VMware vSphere.

Dubbed, the “Cisco Nexus 1000V” (or N1KV), this switch actually replaces and builds on the functionality of the VMware vSphere dvSwitch. The N1KV comes in two pieces – the VEM and VSM (or virtual ethernet module and virtual switch module, respectively).

Luckily for us all, Cisco is offering the Cisco Nexus 1000V available in a free 60 day evaluation mode (keep in mind that you need vSphere up and running to use it).

To learn more about the Cisco Nexus 1000V and download the 60 day evaluation, just visit the links below:

I hope that you will try out this cool new Cisco product with VMware vSphere!
