From the FAQ

DCFM Enterprise provides unified management across 24 fabrics. It is designed for enterprise-class director- and backbone-based installations, FICON environments, and fabrics leveraging routing and extension as well as encryption, HBAs, and virtualization.

DCFM Professional Plus supports most of the features of DCFM Enterprise. It can manage up to four fabrics with a maximum of 2500 ports and 4096 devices. It supports FOS, M-EOS, and mixed FOS/M-EOS fabrics. The only products and features not supported by DCFM Professional Plus are the Brocade DCX Backbone and FICON.

DCFM Professional is a fabric management application included with Brocade switches that contains a subset of the DCFM Enterprise features. DCFM Professional enables the centralized management of up to 1000 ports in a single FOS-based fabric at a time. It performs important functions, including firmware downloads and fabric configuration for groups of switches, while accessing device-level information.
