What is most valuable?

The ability to link simultaneously without user restrictions is the solution's most valuable aspect. The solution offers very good documentation.

What needs improvement?

I personally haven't found anything that is lacking. However, it depends on the use case of the company. It's a good technology. It's only a small part of the complete DC architecture. The pricing could be adjusted to make it easier to sell… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing could be lower, which would make it easier to sell to clients. Cisco has an entire product line and a setup team, which looks at the marketing and how to position the product, and I believe they do take this into consideration… more»

What other advice do I have?

We're a reseller as well as a partner. We primarily deal with Cisco products at my organization. I have some knowledge of Aruba as well. FabricPath is Cisco's version of TRILL, an open-source version. I work for a value-added reseller and… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We've used other solutions with OEMs. We've used, for example, Juniper and TRILL. Which we ultimately use boils down to the implementation and the OEM.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ability to migrate VMs between data centers.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better interoperability with other IT solutions. More support staff are required to support Cisco solutions in Italy.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Five or six years ago we had a solution with Blade server. This used to be shared with the customer. We kept the structure and expanded our data center using FabricPath.

What other advice do I have?

Since 2019, I have been part of the pre-sales team. I have been certified by Cisco for twenty years. I am a CCNP Network Specialist for Routing and Switching, for Security, and I have certification for CCDP Design. I also have other minor certifications including Aruba ACSP.

What is most valuable?

The advantage of FabricPath is that it's a reliable product and you know that it will work in the enterprise environment.

What needs improvement?

It's possible that some improvements could be made on specific technical issues such as implementation. The user interface could be improved and perhaps the command line as well. It's nothing too serious. Deployment is on the Cisco site or on the customer's site so it's quite difficult to talk about additional features - each situation is different. Because it's an enterprise environment you can't… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would suggest to anyone interested in implementing this solution to carefully analyze their situation and then prepare the configuration accordingly. I would rate this product an eight out of 10.
