We have a Virtualization project in the early design stages utilizing VMWare and a iSCSI SAN environment.
We are a Cisco only data center at present, but one vendor quote has all Dell equipment included.
For switching they have specified the PowerConnect 6224 (24 Gbit ports).
A second vendor quote is all IBM equipment, but leaves out the network switching equipment (our choice).
I'd like to keep our data center a Cisco only environment. I need to understand what Catalyst switch(s) would be comparable
to the PowerConnect 6224. A 24 port switch was quoted. May need a pair for failover depending upon
Today we use a pair of Cisco Catalyst 3750G (24 port) L3 switches for our core distribution environment.
Any advice would be appreciated.
