Here's the rub, the appliance is significantly cheaper because of the limit on bandwidth. With the appliance you can get 1GB, 2GB or 4GB. The 6500 has 4GB, 8GB or 16GB depending on the platform and license. The 6500 is for larger deployments. I would lean towards the appliance unless you know you'll be over 4GB. Also the appliance has a really nice GUI (and I hate GUIs).
A few more queries. I am not sure how much bandwidth will be in use. We already have two 6509E chassis with free slots. We have around 500 users on Oracle E Business suite, 500 for Single sign On for Oracle Appllication, 500 using OWA exchange mail, 200 users on Documentum Application. What sort of Bandwidth do you recommend we go in for? Just to make the right choice, so that we dont end up in a bottle neck at some stage.
You basically have two options; do some research and find out what a typical flow is for each app or monitor (SNMP) and see how much bandwidth is being used. This work up front will save your butt in the future.
