No.  Nexus switches use vPC (virtual Port Channels) to achieve multi-chassis etherchannel capability.  

VSS is only available on 6500's and 4500's (AFAIK).

Thanks Don so  is  5K suitible as a core switch ?
Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
Since there is no official definition of "Core Switch", literally any switch can be suitable as a Core switch.  It depends on the environment.  How much traffic? How many devices? What's the topology?

A 5K switch could be a better core switch than a 3850, 4500 or even a 6500.  Then again, it could also less than optimal. But the 4500's and 6500's are modular so you can add linecards as you need.  But the they are kind of limited at the 10g port capability.  From a pure performance standpoint, the 5K's have better throughput than just about any IOS switch.

So... yeah, sure.  The 5K is a suitable core switch. ;-)
