Basic 2 Switch Setup Question

We have recently purchased 2 6520 FC switches to replace our aging FC infrastructure. Our environment consists of our VMWare and Tape Backup connectivity to multiple SANs. Our primary goal is fault tolerance among these systems in our primary datacenter.


My initial question as we begin setup of these devices is if these two switches should be joined into a single fabric and if there is any documentation on this. What is the best practice in this regard? I realize this is an extremely basic question and I'd be happy with simple links to documentation if any can be recommended as I haven't been able to find what I'm looking for.
