Extreme Networks Pitches Blueprint for Migrating Virtual Datacenters



+ Add a Comment


Recently got a new set of two 24-port switches in with 10GbE uplink ports on them for our virtualization project. The stacking and configuration was VERY easy to understand and the system seems to have the processing power to handle heavy traffic, including Jumbo Frames. Using VMware vSphere, our servers take about 10 minutes to install Server 2008 from scratch through ISOs stored on our SAN. Then, any installations are speedy, with no throughput bottlenecks. A pleasing surprise for iSCSI.

Dell's own SAN engineer said to use them over PowerConnects, since the internal processing power is superior! Imagine that!

Highly recommend the brand as a cheaper alternative to Cisco switches.
