For anyone who has ventured to a tech conference, flown into an airport or even driven down CA highway 101 this past year, it’s clear that cloud is still top of mind for many technical and business decision makers. We believe this means that enterprises are no longer just talking the talk, but are looking deeper into their networking infrastructure to see if they are ready to meet the challenges of cloud, virtualization and workload mobility. At Cisco, it is our job to help build clouds that can handle elastic demand and efficiently use the networking infrastructure at both a virtual and physical level. This week, we are announcing several key upgrades to the Nexus 1000V family that bring scalability and cloud readiness to the network.
The key is that cloud, as a use case in the virtual environment, is demanding a higher degree of segmentation. The Nexus 1000V family, including the Nexus 1000V Series Switch and the Virtual Security Gateway (VSG) have all been upgraded to enable this scalability. The latest Nexus 1000V Series Switch Release 1.5, available now, supports Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN). We’ve been talking about VXLAN for a while now (For a refresher, check out Omar Sultan’s blog series, Digging Deeper into VXLAN), but it is an industry-wide development that scales the number of virtual LANs that can be created over cloud networks. It logically separates tenants and applications and enables customers to address cloud requirements and broaden VM mobility. Additionally, Cisco vPath built in the Nexus 1000V supports virtualized network services on VXLAN.
And, as a sneak peek into what is in the works for a future Nexus 1000V release, we are pre-announcing the Multi-VSM Controller Technology, which enables hierarchical Virtual Supervisor Modules in the Nexus 1000V to scale to over 10,000 ports. Look for a blog in the next week which will cover this upcoming feature in more depth.
The new Virtual Security Gateway (VSG) Release 1.3, which already provides trusted intra-tenant data center security, has been upgraded to extend zone-based firewall services to VMs on VXLAN as well. Additionally, Layer 2 and Layer 3 connectivity is now supported between VSG and the Nexus 1000V Virtual Ethernet Module (VEM), enabling a more flexible deployment model.

Hello,There are a couple of switches in the 9300 and 9200 series which use the UCSC-PSU-930WDC power supply - for example 9396px, 9372px, 92160YC and so on.Having in mind the UCSC-PSU-930WDC is end of life, I have checked the replacement product...
