10G switchrecommendaton

I would like to point out that in my experience if you do a lot of coding/devops/automation work with SNMP extreme is a lot harder to work with than Cisco and some of their OIDs/MIBs produce unusual results.

I have experience with the Extreme's Alpine, Blackdiamond, x250, and x450 and i discovered that the command line is fairly different than Cisco, HP, or Dell.  However, since they are a relatively small company with a small but strong customer base, their support is fairly good.  I can't speak for 10G/40G implementations, but from my experiences, they support has a quick response time and they do quite a bit of lab replication to figure out the exact root cause.
