i want to have data center design meeting the following :
edge switches ( most 1G ports ) , connected to Core switches .... Core switches will act as layer3 gateways
i saw in documents that always MLX is used as Core layer with VDX topology , is this mandatory ? why not to use VDX 8000 series ?
i want to dual home egde layer to Core Layer ( core layer should be 2 redundant switches )
what design / topology do u suggest ?

Not sure if you have seen the following VCS Design Guide . This talks about selecting and deploying the different Brocade VDX switches that might be useful to review before you decide which topology/ design to go with .
Hope this helps .
