Cisco MDS Series Review

Great for integrating SAN switch with multiple vendor links

Valuable Features:

- It enables us to integrate and load balance between multiple layer one fiber vendor link. Very useful! - The MDS 9222i VSAN technology allows us to create separate groups for multiple vendor links. - Less expensive than other multi-protocol routers in the market - Provides data compression QOS service at layer one which enables us to transfer larger data sets in less time

Room for Improvement:

- We had to go through a difficult configuration to integrate it with our IBM Brocade SAN switch. - I find it difficult to operate and troubleshoot.
