Looking for a switch solution which could support 16 ports of 10GbE via XFP, and about a dozen 1GbE RJ45 ports.
I looked at the Nexus 5000, but as far as I can tell it only offers 12 x 10GbE ports.
I need something with some serious backplane. Our loading figures are around 800 megabytes (not bits) per second to a 10GbE RAID array port using iSCSI.
Also cannot have the big Nexus 7000 or anything huge like a 6500.
