NX-OS and Cisco Nexus Switching

Next-Generation Data Center Architectures

Second Edition

The complete guide to planning, configuring, managing, and troubleshooting NX-OS in the enterprise–updated with new technologies and examples

Using Cisco Nexus switches and the NX-OS operating system, data center professionals can build unified core networks that deliver unprecedented scalability, resilience, operational continuity, flexibility, and performance. NX-OS and Cisco Nexus Switching, Second Edition, is the definitive guide to applying these breakthrough technologies in real-world environments. This extensively updated edition contains five new chapters addressing a wide range of new technologies, including FabricPath, OTV, IPv6, QoS, VSG, Multi-Hop FCoE, LISP, MPLS, Layer 3 on Nexus 5000, and Config sync. It also presents a start-to-finish, step-by-step case study of an enterprise customer who migrated from Cisco Catalyst to a Nexus-based architecture, illuminated with insights that are applicable in virtually any enterprise data center. Drawing on decades of experience with enterprise customers, the authors cover every facet of deploying, configuring, operating, and troubleshooting NX-OS in today’s data center. You’ll find updated best practices for high availability, virtualization, security, L2/L3 protocol and network support, multicast, serviceability, provision of networking and storage services, and more. Best of all, the authors present all the proven commands, sample configurations, and tips you need to apply these best practices in your data center.

A lot of very detailed information in this reference book. I was able to successfully configure the Nexus 5548 devices for the project I was working on with vPC, FEX, BGP, and other features using this book and a handful of resources on Cisco's web site. Overall, I found the level of detail sufficient to answer most of the questions that came up during the planning and implementation phases of the project, and was also able to get a good grasp of other features that were not necessarily required for the current project, but that could be applied to other large data center projects I may be assigned to using Nexus devices for solutions down the road. I think this guide will be a good resource for those as well. There are a ton of features available in the new Nexus platform of products that are being offered for the Data Center from Cisco. These NX-OS is a little bit of a different beast than the IOS-based devices many of us with Cisco experience are used to, though. This book does a great job of bridging the gap of configuration commands for those of us that are accustomed to working with IOS, as well as introducing many of the new features available on the NX-OS platform that are not available on the IOS device platforms. Although this book did not answer every question that came up during the planning process, it definitely pointed me in the right direction and answered the majority of them. I definitely recommend it.

I have been waiting for this book to come out for a few months and am pleased with the content, readability and layout of the book. Nice examples throughout the book for most topics.
The 1000V chapter is quite big and very very good BUT with what cisco is doing in that space including vWAAS, VXLAN, and VASA (on HyperV and VMware) this really needs to be its own book. Cisco recently released the 6000 series Nexus and this almost paralleled the book release...so it is not in the book.

The are more than your average typos in this book. There is nothing more frustrating then trying to understand a concept only to question the integrity of the examples provided. There are many instances of inaccurate examples in this book, i.e.,
page 161 Area 51 or Area 51?
page 160 192.168.1.36/30 or 192.168.128.0/20
page 143 192.168.128.0 or 1921.168.1.0/20
page 128 fp-spine-1, 2/1, 2/17
page 113 Egypt(config)#switchport mode trunk
page 111 2/47? 2/48?

This book is written in a very clear and concise way. The book doesn't over elaborate on certain topics and often draws comparisons to the Cisco 6509-e switches. The book contains actual configuration and real life examples. The authors did a good job with this book. The book does briefly explain some of the protocols and technology as a refresher to jog your memory.

I really like the straight forward and right-to-the-point writing style of this book. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn the NX-OS.

This book was recommended by INE to read as part of studying for the CCIE DC exam. Their other recommendations have been great, but this book is poorly written, poorly edited, and excessively padded with fluff. There are many typos, several cases of examples being mixed up (which could lead to a lot of confusion for someone new to the subject), complete sections that are cut and pasted (such as spending pages describing OSPF, only to cut paste the entire section to describe EIGRP with only minimal edits, or the same when describing a feature on Nexus 7000 and then a copy/paste to do the same on Nexus 5000) and pages upon pages of unedited repetitive command line output with no truncation, no highlighting or commenting, and no helpful context. Out of 800 pages I would be surprised if the actual useful content comprised even half of that.

The authors should of looked to Data Center Virtualization Fundamentals by Gustavo A. A. Santana as an example of non-repetitive content and helpful examples with minimal editing errors. I'd highly recommend that book over this one, with an added bonus that the DC Virtualization Fundamental book covers nearly all of the content of this book.

I mostly bought this for the next gen datacenter design. Especially fabric path, otv, aci, etc. Wasn't in depth enough about those specific technologies, and wound up talking a lot about specific hardware model feature sets. It just wasn't laid out in a way the seemed super helpful in my opinion. If you are familiar with the basics of nx-os and vpc I would say pass. If you are filling out BoMs and for some reason don't feel like looking up the most current information than this book might be for you.

This book is a pretty good source of info for people moving from IOS to NX-OS. If you are moving from some other vendor to NX-OS with littl IOS knowledge you will probably have to review some IOS commands. It is not a complete nexus guide, you can get more detailed info from the configuration guides on cisco's website and other sources. Remember that the nexus product line is evolving and new hardware is being introduced that may not be in the book down the road. Same with the code.

The biggest negative of this books is that there are A LOT of typos and organizational mistakes. It will make you read some stuff 2 or 3 times. There are a few sections that are "wordy" and hard to understand if you are not an english major.
This book was recommneded by INE DC videos for CCNA. After watching the videos, reading this book has covered the questions I could not ask (it is a VoD). GREAT material to support for CCNA and some CCNP level for DC.
