Suffice it to say, I WANT ONE. If any of you watched TechTV today, you know of what I speak.

56 ports... mixed 10 Gig-E and FCoE... schwing!

The only thing I don't know if pricing. Anyone know if these things cost as much as my house?

There are only 10 kinds of people... those who understand binary, and those that don't.

    Apparently, the starting price for the Nexus 5020 is only around $36,000. Pick one up for me, while you're at it. icon_lol.gif

    that's probably $36000 for just the chassis, and maybe power supplies if you're lucky. Then you will need Sup modules, line cards, the works...probably looking around 200K for a usable switch. More than my house! :)

    Nah, the 5000-series is a rack-mount switch. Given, it's modular, just like a lot of Cisco's routers, but it's the "cheap" version. The 7000-series, THAT's where we're getting into making choices between buying a switch or sending our kids to college. icon_lol.gif

    Although, I have to admit, I am intrigued by the NX-OS. (Great, another thing to learn. . . and just when we had finally shaken off the CatOS and it looked like Cisco was going with the regular ol' IOS across the board.)
