It's an md array ("Linux Software RAID"). All the device addition/removal and such refers to device names, but I don't know that that means it actually relies on them or... I've added the output of mdadm --detail on it to the question.

"At the very least, consult with them before you buy." Well, of course. :-) Re IT budgets. It's...complex. But it's also done and dusted now.

@rihatum: Thanks again!

Thanks. Yeah, I don't think I want to counter-propose anything without at least basic management features, but it seems to me we have a lot of room even within those parameters.

@rihatum: All of the other traffic other than talk between these four servers (of which there's a fair bit) comes through from the external corporate network and its switching architecture. So this switch will be attached to the switch serving the rack, and its job is to make sure chatter between the machines is fast.

Re comparison, I did link what I'm fairly sure they're recommending vs. at least one alternative I found...

Thanks! I'm not at all married to Cisco, that's just what they recommended. Back in the day, of course, they were the switch to have, but it's probably been years since that was true. You're the second person to mention the Procurve stuff, well worth looking at if it ends up being a "we need X feature" situation and the Procurve has it at half the price. Thanks again.

Cheers. The client would probably balk at it being a "desktop" switch, sadly. Can I say, though, I want one for my lab!

Thanks. Yeah, I get that, I guess that's the heart of the question: Are there major features there that the simple scenario in question really justifies the cost of?
