Chapter 14. Nexus Migration Case Study

The case study in this chapter demonstrates a migration from a traditional Catalyst-based data center infrastructure to a next-generation Nexus-based data center. This case study brings together a great deal of the topics discussed individually throughout this book and combines them with work performed by the authors in Cisco engineering labs and multiple real-world customer scenarios, including their requirements, designs, and deployments. This case study can provide a foundation for organizations looking to make a similar migration.
