Cisco SG300-28 switch

We have 1 SG300-28 port switch, and are looking at purchasing another layer 3 switch. This switch was already here when I joined the company.

From what I have read the SG300 is an old Linksys switch, re-branded under Cisco, and updated with Cisco OS.

I can't complain about our existing SG300 because it hasn't given us any problems, but feeling a bit skeptical after finding out that it's a Linksys switch.

We will be using this switch in our datacenter environment which is our DR. Hopefully we will never have to use this environment.

Please let me know your experience with this switch, and your confidence level of using such a switch in a DR environment.

It seems like our product is not listed as the EOL product. It seems like it's being listed as a replacement for the EOL product. The Mfr # is SRW2024-K9.

Yes, so it should be good to go for awhile.  

Linksys was actually owned by Cisco from 2003 until March of this year when Belkin bought them.

This shouldn't be an issue because technically SG300 was rebranded under Cisco, so I don't think it will be coming along to Belkin.

I read some reviews on Amazon and NewEgg, and it seems like a lot of people are buying the 10 port version of this switch for their home labs. This makes me think that even though we are looking at the 28 port version of this, it's not quite enterprise level. I'm hoping someone can prove me wrong.

The 300 series switches are designed for small business.  They are not quite as robust as some of the other lines. We currently have 2 of them in use for the front end of our SAN and they work well.  I am not real fond of having to use the GUI to configure them. I am more of a CLI person though.
