Hi Expert,

I am planning a ISCSI SAN with an extra SAN stack with two switches.
They offered me 10GB switches from Dell , the N4032F series.
Do you have any suggestions for me ?
Is it wise to use them or is Cisco better ?

That is a very good switch. Just depends on your needs / if you are already invested in one vendor or the other as far as networking is concerned. Since you're using iSCSI and not Fibre Channel, that should more than be enough. Another thing to look at is overall bandwidth, but that goes back to what your needs are.

the main switches we have are 5 years old HP switches.
But the DELL switches are just for the iscsi SAN stack solution.
So you can recommend it ?
