Trying to decent on a switch for a new rack install where 10GB to the server is requested. The storage is up in the air right now, but it will likely be iscsi. If we're strickly doing iscsi or nfs storage presentation, and the SAN has 10GB uplinks, would there be any benefit to the 5548UP? I understand if we decide to go w/ a FC SAN and want to use FCoE we'd be getting the 5548UP. Will have a blade chassis with 8 servers and 4 nics each for starters.
The latest NX-OS code has support for iSCSI TLV/DCBx which can be very useful for QoS since with that the Nexus 5K can direct the SAN how to mark the packets and then the N5K just needs to have policies on what to do with the traffic. On the iSCSi side that would definitely be one advantage for the N5K.
