This is true.  Nexus 5000 is a low latency cut through switching
architecture.  High performance and low price per port 10G server access
connections is where Nexus 5000 was designed to fit, not to mention unified
server I/O.

Actually, you can assign an IP address to a VLAN for management.
First you need to enable 'feature interface-vlan'
>From there create an interface vlan for MGMT and assign it an IP address and
away you go.
