Cisco pitches new switch

Virtually there


Network giant Cisco Systems has released a new switch, called Nexus, which will be the successor to the Catalyst 6500.

The Catalyst 6500 is the most successful product the company has made, and is a chassis intended for the enterprise data center, into which customers stack blade servers for additional interfaces. But while the Catalyst ends up being a firewall, load balance or router, depending on what the user wants, the Nexus is designed for virtualization.

It virtualizes the network interface cards, host bus adapters, and cables that connect servers to networks and remote storage. It removes the need for a dedicated local area network and storage area network, with each using a separate network interface card and host bus adapter for every virtual server.

It means that everything is consolidated into a virtual server connecting through virtual NICs.
