  • Details

    Cisco® Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI) in the data center is a holistic architecture with centralized automation and policy-based application profiles. Cisco ACI provides a robust transport network for today’s dynamic workloads. Cisco ACI is built on a network fabric that combines time-tested protocols with new innovations to create a highly flexible, scalable, and resilient architecture of low-latency, high-bandwidth links. This fabric delivers a network that can support the most demanding and flexible data center environments.

    The Cisco ACI fabric is designed from the foundation to support emerging industry demands while maintaining a migration path for architecture already in place. The fabric is designed to support the industry move to management automation, programmatic policy, and dynamic “workload-anywhere” models. The Cisco ACI fabric accomplishes this with a combination of hardware, policy-based control systems, and software closely coupled to provide advantages not possible in other models.

    The Cisco ACI fabric consists of three major components:

    ●   Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC)

    ●   Spine switches

    ●   Leaf switches

    These three components handle both the application of network policy and the delivery of packets. Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches support Cisco ACI, and organizations can use them as spine or leaf switches to take full advantage of an automated, policy-based, systems management approach.

    The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform leaf switches for Cisco ACI are fixed-port switches designed for top-of-rack (ToR) and middle-of-row (MoR) deployment in data centers that support enterprise applications, service provider hosting, and cloud computing environments. These Layer 2 and 3 nonblocking switches support 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) with up to 2.56 terabits per second (Tbps) of internal bandwidth.

Please visit the Cisco 40GBASE QSFP modules data sheet for more details.

    Features and Benefits

    The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform switches are high-density, nonblocking, low-power-consuming switches that are designed to work well in leaf-and-spine deployment in enterprise data centers, service provider facilities, and large virtualized and cloud computing environments.

    The platform offers industry-leading density and performance and capabilities with flexible port configurations that can support existing copper and fiber cabling (Tables 2 and 3). With 1/10GBASE-T support, the platform can deliver 10 Gigabit Ethernet over existing copper, enabling a low-cost upgrade from Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series Switches when used in an MoR or end-of-row (EoR) configuration.

    Table 4 summarizes the features and benefits of the Cisco Nexus 9300 platform.

    Table 4.       Features of Cisco Nexus 9300 Platform Leaf Switches for Cisco ACI

    Feature

    Benefit

    Predictable high performance

    Latency of 1 to 2 microseconds with up to 1.28 Tbps of bandwidth enables customers to build a robust switch fabric scaling from as few as 200 10-Gbps server ports to more than 200,000 10-Gbps server ports.

    Increased integrated buffer space

    Up to a total of 50 MB of integrated shared buffer space allows better management of speed mismatch between access and uplink ports.

    Designed for availability

    Hot-swappable, redundant power supplies and fan trays increase availability.

    Flexible airflow configuration

    Both port-side intake and port-side exhaust airflow configurations are supported.

    CPU, SSD, and memory

    Dual-core 2.5-GHz x86 CPU with 64-GB SSD drive and 16 GB of memory provide enhanced network performance.

    Power efficiency

    All Cisco Nexus 9000 Series power supplies are 80 Plus Platinum rated, providing at least 90% efficiency with 20% utilization.

    Advanced optics

    Cisco offers a pluggable 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ transceiver that enables customers to use existing 10 Gigabit Ethernet data center cabling to support 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. This technology facilitates adoption of 40 Gigabit Ethernet with no cable infrastructure upgrade cost.

    Power and Cooling

    The switches are designed to adapt to any data center hot-aisle and cold-aisle configuration. The switches can be installed with ports facing the rear, simplifying cabling of server racks by putting the ports closest to the servers they support. The switches can be installed with the ports facing the front, simplifying the upgrade of existing racks of switches in which network cables are wired to the front of the rack. The two deployment modes support front-to-back cooling through a choice of power supplies and fan trays designed with opposite airflow directions, denoted by red and blue tabs (Figure 7).

    These two deployment modes are available with AC power supplies. Additionally, DC power supply UCSC-PSU-930WDC (with port-side intake) can be used for deployments with -48 to -60V DC power.

    To enhance availability, the platform supports 1+1 redundant hot-swappable 80 Plus Platinum-certified power supplies and hot swappable 2+1 redundant fan trays.

    Cisco Nexus 9300 Platform Uplink Module

    The Cisco Nexus 9396PX, 9396TX, and 93128TX require an uplink module to be installed for normal switch operation that can be serviced and replaced by the user. Two uplink module options are available.

    The Cisco Nexus M6PQ and M6PQ-E uplink module provides up to 6 QSFP+ ports for 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to spine-layer switches (Figure 8). The uplink module provides 6 active ports when installed in the Cisco Nexus 93128TX, 9396TX, and 9396PX. Cisco Nexus M6PQ-E is a minor hardware revision of Cisco Nexus M6PQ. Enhancements include hardware capability for IP-based EPG classification in Cisco ACI mode.

    Figure 8.      Cisco Nexus M6PQ-E 6-Port QSFP+ Uplink Card

     

    The Cisco Nexus M12PQ uplink module provides up to 12 QSFP+ ports for 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to spine-layer switches (Figure 9). The uplink module provides 8 active ports when installed in the Cisco Nexus 93128TX, and 12 active ports when installed in the Cisco Nexus 9396PX and 9396TX.

    Figure 9.      Cisco Nexus M12PQ 12-Port QSFP+ Uplink Card

     

    Cisco Nexus 9300 Platform Leaf Switch Deployment Scenarios for Cisco ACI

    Cisco Nexus 9300 platform leaf switches along with Cisco Nexus 9000 Series spine switches enable an automated and policy-based Cisco ACI architecture (Figure 10). The high level of redundancy in leaf-and-spine architectures delivers increased availability with highly flexible workload placement.

    Figure 10.    Cisco Nexus 9300 Platform Leaf-and-Spine Architecture for Cisco ACI

     

    The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform leaf switches can operate as data center ToR switches or as MoR and EoR data center access-layer switches deployed with or without Cisco fabric extender technology.

    Software Requirements

    The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform leaf switches run on Cisco ACI software on a 64-bit Linux kernel (Release 3.4.10) with a single binary image that supports both Cisco ACI modular spine switches (Cisco Nexus 9500 platform) and fixed-port switches (Cisco Nexus 9300 platform). The software image is based on Cisco ACI Release 11.0. The single image incorporates both the Linux kernel and Cisco ACI software so that the switch can be booted through a standard Linux kickstart process.

    For the latest software release information and recommendations, please refer to the product bulletin athttp://www.cisco.com/go/aci and Cisco Feature Navigator.
