Fan Delay In The Brocade Switch When Powered Off
Ive been working with Brocade for a little while now, and I have to say Im impressed with the product line. Ive been dealing with the switches and the wireless products, and I really like Brocade. Do I like it as much as Cisco? Depends on the scenario. I still think Cisco has more features, but I aint hate'en the Brocade capabilities for throughput, etc. Now, the cool thing I was going to mention about the Brocade switches, the HPOE switches anyway. Ive noticed that when I pull the power cord out from the back of the power supply, there is about a full second that goes by before the power supply actually goes out. If you have a lot of power blips, this is a really cool thing. You can see the benefit of this. Ive never timed it, but its about a full second for sure. When you pull the plug, you can hear the "scream" of the power supply dim down for that one second, then finally cut off. Anyway, a very interesting feature indeed.
