The Cisco Nexus 1100 series Virtual Services Appliances (VSAs) offer dedicated hardware platforms for the deployment of network services critical to virtualized data center infrastructure.
Cisco Nexus 1100 series VSAs offer high-availability features for large-scale networking. Within a single appliance, a Cisco Nexus 1100 series VSA offers process-level availability conferred by the modular nature of Cisco NX-OS, as well as VSB availability features such as restart-on-failure. With dual Cisco Nexus 1100 series VSAs deployed in a high-availability cluster, active-standby failover of Cisco Nexus VSA manager and VSBs is also supported.
The Cisco Nexus 1100 Series Virtual Services Appliances (VSAs) offer dedicated hardware platforms for the deployment of network services critical to virtualized data center infrastructure. The appliances host a number of virtual service blades (VSBs), including the following: the Cisco Nexus 1000V Virtual Supervisor Module (VSM), the Cisco Virtual Security Gateway (VSG), the Cisco Prime Network Analysis Module (NAM), and the Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) for both LAN and SAN management.
