Customers are using RISE technology for an order of magnitude CAPEX and OPEX savings.
RISE (Remote Integrated Services Engine) is an innovative, industry-first architecture conceived by the Nexus Services engineering team to seamlessly integrate Nexus switches with appliances offering L2/L3/L4-L7 services. RISE makes the service appliance look like a line card in the Nexus 7K series and N5k/6k(upcoming). This integration allows any appliance to take advantage of the benefits of an in-chassis module such as increased application performance, high application availability, and data center consolidation.
