    Hello Antonio, we have one Brocade 6505 and two Brocade 300, we need to connect  NetApp to the fabric but the NetApp requires 10 GB Ethernet, I was checking the Transceiver Matrix and looks like there is no transceiver from FC to 10Gb Ethernet for these model.


    Am I right ?

    is not a question of Transceiver.... and yes, there are no SFP / Converter available from FC to Ethernet.


    Brocade FC Switches 300; 65xx; don't support Ethernet Protocols

    Most NetApp devices (that I've worked with, anyway) have two options for connection: SAN or NAS.


    I suppose there could be a NAS only option (as this *is* what they are know for). If you are indeed looking for a NAS connection, these are not the switches you are looking for.
