When i was looking for Cisco Nexus 9k series model switch, it was mentioned 2 types of mode. One of them is ACI mode and the other one is NX-OS mode. I searched smth about them but I couldn't find any utility information. So is there anyone to explain what is the difference between them?
Solved! Go to Solution.
basically, ACI involves clustering, and having leaf nodes and spine nodes. NX-OS mode means the switch is in standalone mode.
ACI Fabric Topology
Chapter: Converting from Cisco NX-OS to ACI Boot Mode and from ACI Boot Mode Back to Cisco NX-OS
So can we say ACI mode has much more feature than NX-OS mode? Do you know is there any expense difference between modes? Because it should be a cause why Cisco seperate them.
