To provide better visibility to the network team for the growing virtual server access layer, Cisco worked with VMware to develop Cisco’s first software-based switch, the Cisco Nexus 1000V switch. The Cisco Nexus 1000V switch comprises a VSM and a VEM and these modules create the vSwitch. This course describes the problems that are solved by Cisco Nexus 1000V Series Switches and how the Virtual Supervisor Module (VSM) and Virtual Ethernet Module (VEM) integrate with VMware ESX. You'll learn how to use the VMware ESX and Cisco Nexus 1000V CLIs to validate connectivity of the Cisco Nexus 1000V Virtual Supervisor Module (VSM) to Virtual Ethernet Modules (VEMs) and VMware vCenter.
