Vmware NSX

I am planning to implement VMware NSX.
I am aware that for NSX to be implemented it requires vDS (virtual distributed switch)
But in my environment i am using Nexus 1000v.
Is it possible to have the NSX working on Nexus 1000v instead of Vmware's vDS.
Let me know if it is possible.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

AFAIK a virtual networking stack inserts itself on top of and independent of the physical hierarchy

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Any reply

Not sure if possible to run on 1000v vDS but I'd prefer not to in any case (I don't think it can).  The reason for this is that 1000v is using vDS 5.1 while going to NSX you can use latest greatest with vSphere 6 giving you a lot more capability.
