    Any hardware suggestions for a FC lab? I was looking to expand some SAN type of knowledge.

    Wasn't sure what kind of models were at the edge of end of life where they're still relevant yet cheap, or what kind of equipment would best suit a learning lab environment.

    I think basically any cheap managed fiber switch should do you fine.

    Do you have anything for a SAN already or no?

    I bought a Cisco MDS 9134 a couple years ago, was looking at a few cheap QLogic HBAs but wasn't sure if I was missing anything :p
