    Colo network design

    Create an LACP trunk to each device. create a VLAN for storage, a VLAN for VM traffic, and a VLAN for your management (can include IPMI in this same VLAN probably)

    Who, besides Cisco, for enterprise access switches?

    I've used a bit of everything. Dislike brocade, avaya, nortel, and Dell. HP is good, but limited feature sets (mostly worked with 28xx, 29xx and zl chassis. CLI is very close to Cisco Juniper is my current favourite (disclaimer, I'm a Juniper partner, but also a Cisco Partner) I love...

    I've used flowviewer in the past and liked it, simple: plixer is also okay:

    nice! I know what you mean about the commit time, it's annoying waiting for my SRX240 cluster to commit, our config is getting rather large, and commit does take a while.

    if orion/npm is too pricey, there is always ipmonitor (also from solarwinds). HP sitescope sucks. Zabbix is pretty cool, and cacti+thold works pretty well if you have the time to set it up. Lot's of love around here for nagios as well, but I don't use it personally.

    Juniper switch for home use?

    I've switched to using nothing but Juniper in new deployments at work, mostly EX4200. We've got EX-2200's in our office though. They're good switches, and the CLI is the same across all product lines running JUNOS, so it's nice that the switches and firewalls have the same config setup.

    yup, the EX4200 stack is LOUD, those are EX4200-48P's, with dual 930W PSU's, they move quite a bit of air.
