It's been a while since last time I used Brocade SAN swithc. Can anybody please recommended a Brocade model for NetApp cluster filers? We have 6 nodes cluster and they are FAS 8080.
Also, what is the version of recent OS?
Looking forward to hear you!

Mid-range would likely be a G610 or G620. This would future-proof your data needs for quite a while.
If you want to save some money, and still get 16G speeds, you can go with one of the 65xx switch family:
Both will run FOS 8.0.x, or 8.1.x. The next release coming out this fall is 8.2.x
I don't know anything about the latest NetApp, but they may be limited to 16Gb speeds. The 65xx switch in pairs for redundancy will surely give you all the BW you need.
