Migrating from Cisco to Brocade

My customer has a Cisco MDS9509 SAN and has elected to replace them with a set of DCX's. Are there any tools to assist with the migration or any 'best practice' to follow. I realise that every SAN is different but I'm really looking to make this is painless as possible.

If they have good knowledge of Cisco switch, they can with VSAN = Virtual SAN and IVR = Inter VSAN Routing, migrate from Cisco to Brocade DCX over IR = Intergrated Routing.

Re: Migrating from Cisco to Brocade

seems IR is not as flexible as IVR...
