I recall a couple of recent arguments, so I'm wondering if someone could
summarize the discussion on gigabit switches for HPC/clusters.
1. If memory serves, NetGear wasn't a great choice?
2. HP Procurve got some good reviews.
I've been asked for an opinion by some folks building a small, dedicated
cluster. I'd told them of my misgivings on NetGear, and now I've gotta
give a recommendation.
I am asking for the collective wisdom. That said, I'll comment that
I've been happy with out Procurve 5012zl but it's a bit larger than they
need or would grow into.
