It doesn't seem that long ago we swapped out our IBM 2109-F16 switch for
our Cisco 9124 fiber switch with 16 fiber ?gbics?. We are using 11 of
- 6 tape drives in our 3576
- 5 lpars on our Power 6.
We're going to disconnect that and use this other switch. Something about
standardizing on one switch. Other switch seemed popular with the people
who set up our NetApp.

I was asked how many gbics I'll need. I am thinking the same: 11.
However, do I really? Or, should I get some uber gigibit fiber card on
the Power 7 that will virtualize to multiple lpars and yet not negatively
impact performance?
