Cisco's Virtual Switches Gain User Acceptance With Cloud Move

Early adopters say Cisco's Nexus 1000V Series switches are helping them break down silos in IT, making it easier to deploy virtualized systems to customers more quickly.

Cisco Nexus 1000V Series switches were designed to facilitate networking in a converged environment. These virtual machine (VM) access switches integrate well with VMware vSphere while running the Cisco NX-OS operating system. This virtual switch actually operates inside the VMware ESX hypervisor to provide policy-based VM connectivity, mobile VM security and network policy.
