VDX Options

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 ?

Re: VDX Options

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 .
