Recommended 10GE ISCSI SAN switch

Hi guys,

We're shortly going to be getting some 10G SANs, and I was wondering 
what people were using as SAN switches for 10G SANs.

It is my understanding that low buffer sizes make most 'normal' 10G 
ethernet switches unsuitable for the job.

We're pretty much an exclusive Juniper shop, but are not biased in any 
way -- best tool for the job is what I've been tasked with to find.

Keeping that in mind, how would something like a EX4550 fare in the 
role? Are there better devices in the same price range?
