Brocade VDX EoL
« on: January 16, 2015, 05:25:37 PM »
Looks like Brocade is trimming the VDX line of fabric switches.  The 6710, 6720 and 6730's are getting the chop.  That is harsh because we bought a truck-load of 6710's just two years ago.

Hi Telair,

The switches should only be EoS.  EoL in five years time when no longer supported?

Brocade calls it "End of Life" now.  Post end of life support continues till 2020 though.  But they said there will be no more software upgrades available for the VDX 6710/6720/6730 after a specific version which should come out shortly.  Then your left to coast on whatever that version brings out for the next 5 years it sounds like.  I can't find the software notice right now.  If I find it I'll post it.
