Bottom line.
You need to understand brocade and cisco language.
If you doing this to move hypervisors, you need to know your ports, the native vlan membership and the tag members of the ports.

If you look at a brocade, it is or was done in a vlan config:
IE:
vlan 248 name "Meow"  by port
 untagged ethe 0/1/15 ethe 0/1/22
 router-interface ve 248
 spanning-tree 802-1w

Converged ports may be a little different using a dual-mode. highly unlikely this is done on server ports.

On a Cisco switch, your going to have your vlans configured.
You then need to essentially trunk your ports.
take the example.
interface TenGigabitEthernet5/1
 switchport
 switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
 switchport trunk native vlan 248
 switchport mode trunk

you can also control what ports trunk over via the switch trunk vlan something something command.

You need to know if your doing a LAG on your hypervisors, odds are if your asking this question, your probably not.
If your doing Net attached storage, you may want to make sure you enable jumbo frames as pertinent.
