Hi All,

 

When looking at the NX-OS switch' features, some of them are below...... I like to ask which Juniper switch platform or series has the same or similar features?

 

High availability:

- VDC (Virtual Device Context, it can be created many virtual NX-OS for Fault Isolation).

Security:

-Virtual Port Channel -vPC

-Encryption 802.1ae Macsee

-Control Plane Policing -CoPP

Embedded Services:

Hi,

 

in general Juniper QFX series is the competitor to Cisco's Nexus series. You can find the datasheets of the different QFX Switches here:

Let me translate the above into Juniper-specific terms:

VDC == Logical Systems

vPC == MC-LAG

MACSec == MACSec

CoPP = Firewall Filter+policer on lo0

SPAN == analyzer

ERSPAN == remote analyzer

Netflow == Netflow/cflow

 

if You want ALL of these, then EX9K is the only Juniper SWITCH product that has support for ALL these features.

If You can live without VDC, then You have greater choice of mid-range EX and QFX models (but no MACSec on EX2xxx product line, and no MC-LAG on EX2xxx or EX3xxx lines see https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/topic-map/understanding_media_access_contro... and https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/concept/mc-lag-feature-summary-best-practic...)

 

Or buy MX and live happily ever after Smiley Happy

Thx
