“The Nexus 1000V simplifies collaboration within the IT department by clearly separating responsibilities for our server group and network group”
Rory Regan, Telecom Manager
“Taking control of the Cisco Nexus 1000V was simplified and intuitive. The process of virtualization of our datacenter will in fact accelerate and we will be able to virtualize everything that has been not possible in the past.”
Julien Mousqueton, Technical Architect

Virtualize 30% More Applications
Virtualize general compute with a consistent policy workflow from P V
Virtualize DMZ’s with VLAN isolation, and security policy enforcement with ACL
Virtualize PCI, SOX, HIPAA applications with Netflow, ERSPAN, and port statistics
Virtualize Tier-1 applications with LACP, vPC host mode
Virtualize VDI with DHCP Snooping, Port Security, Dynamic ARP Inspection
How will the Nexus 1000V allow me to virtualize 30% more of my datacenter?...
Mileage may vary. 30% is conservative. Many customers are seeking to virtualize in excess of 60% of their datacenter.
Operational readiness assessments across a variety of VMware customers have shown that network hurdles are some of the most difficult challenges in virtualizing more servers. That is where the Nexus 1000V comes in to increase the rate of server virtualization and allow companies to realize the benefits of more server virtualization right away.
Virtualize 30% more applications
DMZ applications can be virtualized with the help of private VLAN isolation, and security policy enforcement with ACL
Regulatory applications can be virtualized with Netflow, ERSPAN, port statistics that persist after vMotion
Tier-1 applications can be virtualized with increased visibility and IO optimization with LACP, vPC host mode

30% Less Hours on vNetwork
With a distributed switch, network change requests take 1 hour per domain rather than 30 minutes per server (for 3 servers that is 30% less hours/yr)
With Nexus 1000V, regulatory and organizational audits take 20 minutes per server rather than 1 hour
With Nexus 1000V, the server admin may offload network configuration to the network admin, this division of labor increases productivity
Fewer hours “keeping the lights on” means more hours “innovating”
How will the Nexus 1000V allow me to spend 30% less time maintaining my virtual network?...
Example, in a 3 server cluster it would take 30 minutes each (or 1.5 hours) for a typical change request. With the 1000V this same change takes 1 hour for all 3 servers in the cluster. This is a 30% reduction in the number of hours to manage the virtual network, which grows as the cluster grows.
Let’s try it out for ourselves…

Two Ways to See the ROI of the Cisco Nexus 1000V

vSS = VMware Standard Switch with Enterprise Edition
vDS = Virtual Distribute Switch with Enterprise Plus
1000V = Cisco Nexus 1000V Virtual Distributed Switch

servers
For a 100 server environment with 10% server virtualization, the Nexus 1000V can save the customer 1 million dollars. The savings comes from capex (buy less servers) and opex (spend less hours on virtual network).
Primary savings is capex, and comes from buying and powering fewer servers. Capex does not even include reduction in software costs for Windows, SQL, VMware, and Nexus 1000V licenses.
Opex savings is a result of the one-and-done concept of port-profiles. For example, rather than spending 30 minutes for each server, a 1000V network admin needs on average 1 hour, with 3 requests on average per year.
