What are your recommended Layer 2 and Layer 3 network switches if the main consideration is performance?

@Sandeep Pandit Aruba (formerly ProCurve) most recently with LL3 switches being fed by a full L3 switch.  The L3 switch is SPF+ and we use Copper SFP+ cables to connect to servers in the room and put in a SFP+ fiber module for remote connections.  I also looked at Netgear.

@Michael Velasco 100% agree with you, if you need a highly secured and redundancy as a requirement I would look at Extreme's (old Avaya) fabric. So yes you are right depends on the requirements.

@Sandeep Pandit, there are some legacy Procurve / Aruba switches that are examples. The 2930 series had a single area OSPF. 
You were never going to use them as ABR or ASBRs, but they could participate in one OSPF area and had a great price point.

Ethernet Switches
What is an Ethernet switch? An Ethernet switch connects devices like computers, laptops, servers, and printers to a local area network (LAN) and to each other. The switch then functions as a central connecting station. You can boost the Ethernet’s capacity by wiring switches to each other. Unlike routers, Ethernet switches use multiple ports to enable devices in the LAN. Unmanaged switches are a type of plug-in switch that will work when connected, without the need to configure them...
