In the evolving landscape of applications, there is an increased bandwidth requirement due to emergence of AI-powered applications. Large cloud and data-center networking teams require a flexible, reliable solution that efficiently manages, troubleshoots, and analyzes their IT infrastructure. They need security, automation, visibility, analytics, and assurance. Equipped to support this next-generation cloud architecture, the Cisco Nexus® 9300-GX2 series switches are based on Cisco Cloud Scale technology.
The Cisco Nexus 9300-GX2 series addresses the need for high-performance, power-efficient, compact switches in the networking infrastructure. These switches are designed to support 50G, 100G, 200G, and 400G fabrics for next-generation leaf and spine designs and IP storage fabrics. The platform is built with backward-compatible 400G optical interface Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable–Double Density (QSFP-DD) to transparently migrate existing data center fabrics from 40-Gbps and 100-Gbps speeds to 400 Gbps; it also offers various lower port speeds and densities, including 10, 25, 50, and 200 Gbps, using breakouts. Cisco provides two modes of operation for Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches. Organizations can deploy Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI®) or Cisco NX-OS mode.
