Network World's exclusive test of Cisco Nexus 7000

Check out Network World's exclusive test of Cisco's Nexus 7000 data center switch.  In Network World's

biggest test to date, we put the Nexus through its paces in six areas: high availability and resiliency; performance with layer-2 traffic, layer-3 IPv4 traffic, and IPv4 multicast traffic; features; and manageability and usability. Even Cisco's engineers told us they too had never before tested at this scale. Lab Alliance tester David Newman tells it like he saw it, and gives readers the good and bad about the Nexus.
