Also, check out the Nexus 7000 demo, that showcases a new feature RISE (Remote integrated services engine), that in the initial phase, integrates Citrix Netscaler and Cisco NAM (Network Analysis Module) as dedicated service modules to the switch backplane. Our product experts are eager to meet you and walk you through the details. We also have white-boards to engage you at a more detailed architectural level, if you like, so do not miss out on this exciting opportunity.
The Nexus 9516 is the latest addition to the Nexus 9000 family of switches and it is already making headlines everywhere. The crowning moment came two weeks ago, when the Nexus 9516 was selected as Best of Interop 2014 finalists, in the Data Center category. Earlier the Nexus 9516 achieved grander results in an independent study conducted by Miercom Group, and emerged the industry-leader in port-density, low-latency and throughput performance benchmark tests. And in that celebratory vein,today, at Partner Summit, we are proud to introduce the Nexus 9516 and its sibling the Nexus 9504, two new additions that offer broad choices to customers to address business opportunities with cloud, big data, and complex applications and expanding the foundation for Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).
With Interop less than three weeks away, we were doubly excited to learn that Cisco APIC, the controller for our Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) fabric, and the Cisco Nexus 9516 switch have been selected as Best of Interop 2014 Finalists in the categories of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Data Center Networks respectively. As you may recall, when we announced ACI and our series of Nexus 9000 switches back in October, we announced that APIC would be the software controller for the application-centric policy model, and would be available in Q2, CY 2014.
As we get closer to that general availability date, Interop is a great venue to unveil more aspects of the ACI fabric, the policy model, and key APIC features. If you aren’t going to be in Las Vegas the first week of April, now may be the time to start making plans as we gear up for some exciting ACI news and events, and hopefully bringing home these Best of Interop awards.
