Cisco NX-OS

Return to Operating Systems

Cisco NX-OS is a network operating system for the Nexus-series Ethernet switches and MDS-series Fibre Channel storage area network switches made by Cisco Systems. It evolved from the Cisco operating system SAN-OS, originally developed for its MDS switches.

It is based on Wind River Linux and is inter-operable with other Cisco operating systems.[citation needed] The Command Line Interface (CLI) of NX-OS is similar to that of Cisco IOS.

Recent NX-OS has both Cisco-style CLI and Bash shell available.
