Cisco Nexus 1000V Resources

I was having a very difficult time trying to find some whitepapers and trial download links for the Cisco Nexus 1000V but I found an excellent forum post in the Cisco Communities with exactly what I was looking for. User “Scaywood” put together an excellent list of resources for the Cisco Nexus 1000V that includes the following:
  • General Info on the Nexus 1000V
  • 60 day free evaluation download
  • Webinars
  • Cisco Validated Design Guides
  • Whitepapers
  • Deployment Guides
  • and more
Here is the link: https://communities.cisco.com/docs/DOC-24984

You do not need to register for a Cisco.com account in order to access this forum post in the Cisco Communities. But you must have a Cisco.com account in order to download trial software and PDF whitepapers. Cisco.com accounts are free and you can register for a Cisco.com account via this link.
