Michael Morris, one of the first Cisco Certified Design Experts, and trusty engineer Kamal Vyas are blogging about their experience is setting up a Cisco Nexus based Data Center. They are going through an extensive proof-of-concept in Cisco’s CPOC lab right now and covering this near-real time on the Cisco Subnet blog over at Network World.They have the Cisco Nexus 7000 in the AggregationThe Cisco Nexus 5000 for 10GbE AccessThe Cisco Nexus 2000 for 1GbE AccessCatalyst 6500 for Network ServicesCisco ASR 1000 for WAN EdgeThey then went and tested the Virtual Port-Channel code to eliminate Spanning Tree from being a topology bound protocol to simplify the network, reduce convergence times, and enable, if necessary, a larger and flatter topology to support virtualization more effectively.Michael- what is working well? Also where can we improve and what would make this easier for you and Kamal?dg
