Brocade FCoE switches will be available from OEMs starting end of May 2009. We expect that customers will be able to order the product from OEMs starting June 2009.

you are talking about FCoE switches that are top of the rack or about switches for HP c-class blade system ?
there is a big difference . Hp silent about they support for FCoE
i don't want to buy classic FC switches for c-class blade system http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/saninfrastructure/switches/b8gbsscblade/index.html ) and to replace them with new switches in one more year or less

I was talking about availability of FCoE top of rack switches. I need to find out about the timeline for blade switches for HP C-class and get back to you on that early next week.
