We have SLKWRM 300 brocades and want to purchase new 8GB switches; What model to buy?

We have SLKWRM 300 brocades (8GB) in our environment and want to purchase 2 new 8GB switches.

What model 8GB brocade should we buy? The same SLKWRM 300 or is there a newer and/or better 8GB brocade model?

Thanks!

kbay,

 

I would suggest from a point of view of ROI, to buy Brocade 6510

Other 8Gb Switches excepted Brocade 300 are End of Sales

Hi kbay,

 

See the 6505/6510 FAQ doc at the link below for a comparison of the 65xx series and the 300

 

http://www.brocade.com/forms/getFile?p=documents/faqs/6510-6505-faq.pdf

 

The 6505 & 6510 support 2, 4, 8, 16 Gbps speeds

Thank you both very much for your posts

I am looking into both the 6505 and 6510 for our environments.
