Hi,

for Small SAN environments, Brocade 300 or Brocade 5100, or see in the Compatibility Matrix here under Matrices

Ageed the 300 series work well and are easily managed using the native WEB Tools GUI.

Check if the storage system supports direct connected hosts. This would avoid buying a switch. I am not an EMC expert. Some other vendors support this connection topology.
