The solution is fast, even though you might not necessarily get the speed out of the internet anyway.
For what I used this switch for, it did well.
Its easy management is most valuable. It is easy to use, easy to manage, stable, and very reliable.
From a data center implementation, with respect to competition from your data, there isn't really a product recovery for the different tests other than Cisco Nexus. For example, if you take Multi-tenancy for the data center, it's something which, I think, only Cisco has. There are some implementation from HP, but I think it's limited there.
Configuring the solution is very easy. It's quite a straightforward process, and it's not difficult at all.
The configuration is easy.
We have found the solution to be entirely stable.
The GUI makes it easy to configure, manage, and work with.
Its throughout and compatibility are the most valuable.
The most valuable feature is stability.
Cisco is the market leader in this space and it is a product that I recommend.
The most valuable features are the security, web control, and traffic control.
The 40 gig backbone InterConneX was valuable for our use case. It is even faster now. QFabric has spine-leaf technology or topology, which basically makes every single hop only one hop away in terms of connecting from one device to another. It is a pretty good and robust solution. It works pretty well in terms of scalability, and their technical support is amazing.
The price is low compared to the competition.
The unique ring topology is actually a handy innovation.

What is LAN Switching?
Interoperability is the single most important feature to look for when researching LAN switches, with operational ease coming in as a close second. Other factors that should weigh in on the decision include administrative functionality (both globally and individually as needed) to reduce resource consumption and alleviate a tedious workload for the administrators, as well as bandwidth and power consumption, stability/cooling, and of course, scalability for the future.
