New Cisco Catalyst Nexus Products
Cisco has just introduced a new Nexus 7000 series Data Center Switching product, with a switching capacity of more than 15 Tbps. Cisco Catalyst Nexus products have spent more than $ 1 billion in R&D in the past 4 years.
Cisco TrustSec can be implemented as a whole within one company to meet government or industry regulations, such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley. So that investment that has come out in the development of IT systems will not be in vain, because the devices that have been purchased do not need to be replaced just because they do not comply with existing rules.
Destination Cisco Catalyst Nexus
Nexus 7000 was specifically designed for Data Center needs, and in accordance with the Nexus Catalyst Nexus vision of Data Center 3.0, namely: a data center that consists of a collection of networks, applications, storage, and computers that can be combined in realtime to meet business and application needs. To achieve this vision, a data center network must have several characteristics, such as: high availability, predictable performance, and virtualization of all network services. Cisco Nexus 7000 fulfills all the conditions above.
Data Center 3.0 is not a proprietary solution, because Cisco also collaborates with many players in this data center world, such as Accenture, Dell, EMC, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, and others.
Security of Cisco Catalyst Nexus
Back to the results of IDC research, the most important thing in the development of IT systems today is the issue of Security. One of the capabilities of Nexus 7000 in network security is Cisco TrustSec (Cisco Trust Security). Cisco TrustSec is a new breakthrough in the field of security, where Cisco TrustSec allows a company to implement overall network security rules.
Cisco TrustSec provides several functions such as:
Secure campus network access settings – how each person and device must go through a thorough inspection process before being allowed into applications and other resources on the network
The regulatory framework is unified – the way of authentication that is currently available is very diverse, making it difficult to implement on the ground. Cisco TrustSec resolves this problem by installing a centralized control engine to unify all the rules
Comprehensive Integrity and Security – all data entering and leaving the network will be maintained in integrity and security in accordance with applicable regulations
