Case Study: Nexus NX-OS Customer Deployment


A major finance industry customer in Australia had expanded and upgraded their data centre network with Cisco Nexus 9Ks in NX-OS mode using VXLAN/EVPN/MP-BGP overlay technology (non-ACI).  Housley was asked to facilitate training and operational capability for the local team in charge of the infrastructure.


A Housley Instructor-Consultant constructed a training program based around a Nexus 9K environment, but added modules to the session that included EVPN, OTV, enhanced vPC – areas not covered in standard training, but of common relevance to DC solutions in enterprise environments where Nexus 9K is implemented and ACI is not deployed.  The session included 9K training via a remote lab, and well as customised sessions that included referencing the customer’s live environment and troubleshooting sessions for these technologies.


As a result of the train-mentor session, the customer Infrastructure team were in a much better position to operate and optimise the new environment, and interface with other areas of IT to drive value out of the 9K technology upgrade, and a more assured path to realising a positive ROI in a shorter timeframe.
