Next generation of 10Gb data-centre Ethernet
The Cisco Nexus 5020 is designed to meet the challenges of next-generation data centres — including dense multi-socket, multi-core, virtual-machine-optimised environments — where infrastructure sprawl and increasingly demanding workloads are commonplace.
- High-performance, low-latency 10Gb Ethernet
- Optional unified fabric with Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) for I/O (input/output) consolidation
- Virtual machine-optimised services for higher asset utilisation
HighlightsThe Cisco® Nexus™ 5020 Switch provides a unified fabric over 10 Gigabit Ethernet for LAN, SAN, and cluster traffic. This unification enables consolidation and utilization of previously separate infrastructure and cabling, reducing the number of adapters and cables required and eliminating redundant switches. The Cisco Nexus 5020 Switch simplifies cable management, allowing hosts to connect to any network through a unified Ethernet interface.
Optional Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
- Straightforward encapsulation of Fibre Channel into Ethernet
- Eliminates the need for separate switches, cabling, adapters, and transceivers for each class of traffic
- Helps dramatically reduce power consumption
Virtual Machine Optimized Services
- The Cisco Nexus 5020 Switch is designed to support virtualization and virtual machine mobility by mapping virtual machines to network profiles, allowing network services to be allocated at per-virtual machine granular¬ity centrally from the unified fabric
- This cohesive capability to move virtual machines and network profiles together eases manageability and increases isolation
- Consistent network and security policies can be enabled centrally over the unified fabric
