We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The reliability of Brocade is the most valuable feature. The solution has been up and running for over ten years without any fail, fixes required, or breakdowns. It is a very strong piece of equipment.""The switches last for a very long time.""It has good integration with HPE Primera. They have smart zoning in which the administration is very easy. You don't have to do anything. Zoning and other things are done automatically if you just enable the smart zoning. That's one very good thing in HP.""I have not had any issues with our Brocade switches."
