Storage networks built around director-class switches or islands of small switches are the top two switch architectures for respondents to this fall's Storage Purchasing Intentions survey. While those set-ups vied for the top spot, high-end director-class switches won by a narrow margin (29% vs. 27%).

Eighteen percent of those surveyed go for a single fabric of large core switches with smaller edge switches, and 16% have set up their larger switches as islands surrounded by smaller switches. Ten percent are finding other ways to arrange their switch architecture.
