We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Easy to integrate with any of the other hardware platforms."
"The initial setup was really straightforward and easy."
"The technical support is good."
"There's a zone for each server and services in the storage."
"It has good integration with HPE Primera. They have smart zoning in which the administration is very easy. You don't have to do anything. Zoning and other things are done automatically if you just enable the smart zoning. That's one very good thing in HP."
"I have not had any issues with our Brocade switches."
"The number of surfaces that can be handled by the chipset could be increased."
"There are some performance issues."
"No graphical interface."
"It should be simpler. There are still some things that can be simpler in the Brocade switches."
"These switches are no longer supported."
