The VDX line of Brocade switches has been acquired by Extreme Networks and the ICX line has moved to another vendor. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I am okay with Cisco MDS switches as well as Brocade switches. I have also used Brocade switch in the old days when it was Dell EMC Clariion. I would recommend Brocade Ethernet Switches for using with HP solutions. I don't know how they work with other storage solutions. We are using this solution with HPE Primera, and it's working fine. It's very good. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

For storage it's a good solution, especially if you're working with e-paying solutions. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

I am supporting NVMe technology and it's a new technology, so I often struggle with performance issues. That is why I will rate this solution a nine out of ten only, and not a ten out of ten.

I have been using this solution for a long time and kept with it, because everything I need, is covered by it. I am happy with its performance and its features. I will rate it a nine out of ten.
