Decide the appropriate speed of FC-Links

Hi,

again a question regarding FC-Link speeds.

Background:

DataCenter A with Server, Swtiches and Storage Systems runs at 4 GBit/s; the Switch has SFP's with 8GBit/s.
DataCenter B has the same configuration.

Question: Can I run a speed of 8 GBit/s at the ISL's between both DataCenter? Yes, I know I can do it, but

is this appropriate?

Regards, Hans

Yes it works fine in our DC.

I hope this helps,

Andreas
