When you think of your IT organization, if agility and speed don’t come to mind you are in danger of being left behind. Today’s IT needs to be fast, flexible and innovative – what Cisco has dubbed “Fast IT.”

If you think your network is complicated now, things are only going to get worse. According to Cisco, the number of connected “things” is expected to grow from 13 billion to more than 50 billion by 2020. What is an overburdened, underfunded IT organization to do?

One way to tackle the challenge is to make network administration more intelligent and automated, thus freeing up personnel to deal with other issues (and maybe even be less reactive!). Cisco’s Nexus 9000 switches are designed to help you do just that. As you may know, these high performance, high availability devices provide lightning quick data transfers, and are scalable and energy efficient.

What you may not know is that there are many different modes of operation and programming interfaces for the Nexus 9000 when running in NX-OS mode. Each one adds a new dimension to what you can do with the switches and enables you to further customize how you configure the switches.

In my latest Cisco Champions blog post, “Different Personalities of the Nexus 9000 in NX-OS Mode,” I offer an overview of different configuration modes that you can use to speed up and improve the accuracy of these switches. I hope you find it helpful.

As always, if you have questions about Cisco switches, feel free to contact GTRI. Our work with Cisco has earned us a “Gold Partner” designation. We are Cisco certified in a number of areas, and we are an Authorized Technology Provider for Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).
