November 19, 2012
Cleveland, Ohio, November 19th, 2012 – Park Place Technologies, a leading provider of data center hardware maintenance services, has expanded its service catalog to include Cisco support solutions for Nexus switches. Models involved in the new service plan include the Nexus 7000, 5000 and 3000 series devices.
Cisco Nexus switches were first introduced with the 7000 model in 2008. The modular network systems provide a holistic option for data center Ethernet networks.
Cisco Nexus modular switches all run the NX-OS firmware/operating system. This has made them a popular option in many data center environments. NX-OS is generally regarded as a superior Ethernet switch firmware solution that supports high availability attributes and is optimized for high-density 10 Gbps Ethernet operations. The solution is widely considered a better option than the Cisco IOS system.
