Brocade vs. Cisco?

Both Brocade and Cisco produce FC switches wich compete in the same market segments. Are there any comparision charts which can help to evaluate performance of SW and MDS switches in a real or test environments? For example: response time in a heavy loaded SAN, real bandwith, percentage of frames discarded, etc?

Brocade has some charts but they are not really online. It's always a good idea to consider environmental impact. A Brocade switch will produce roughly one third less CO2 per year than a Cisco switch. Someone from Brocade may have more detailed numbers.

CO2 pruduction... It's an interesting idea. I never saw THAT parameter in charts. <!graemlin::D><!graemlin::)>So, it means that there no answer to my question? Brocade states that their switches are state of art comparing to devices produced by ther vendors, and still there are no proof?
