I'm a Brocade enthusiast and I'm having a debate with a Cisco colleague of mind and were discussing the differences between the Brocade VFabrics vs Cisco VSAN's.
1. Do they pretty much provide the same functionality?
2. The Cisco 9222i storage router does not allow you to configure VEX to VE, only VE to VE, I told my Cisco colleague that if t you can't configure VEX to VE the fabrics will merge and that configuring VSAN/Inter-VSAN routing will not isolate the fabrics from one another, but they will isolate the actual traffic.
Can someone confirm this?

1) Brocade Virtual Fabric, and Cisco VSAN are different things,
2) VSAN (cisco ) Routing to VF (brocade) is not supported - statement FarioOS 6.2 however will be available in a planned Release i believe 6.4.
( Of course, If is current supported in 6.3 is unknow to me )
