The Netgear M7100 is a fully managed switch that features twenty-four 10GBase-T ports and 4 SFP+ ports and is designed for virtualization and aggregating 10GbE access layer switches. The 24 ports of 10GBase-T use the standard RJ45 Ethernet connection and support Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet and 10GbE speeds with auto-negotiation for speeds. The SFP+ ports on the other hand extend support further to 1G/10G fiber uplinks and other DAC connections. The M7100 also features an option to purchase an additional power supply for a highly available solution via two PSUs. The M7100's street price produces a figure close to about $175/port.

Did you guys have a chance to try out the MLAG feature of the switch with another?

They released the firmware for that in early 2014 and we've been having some issues during reboot of switches / servers where the LAGs are "jumbled" - they will join wrong LAG etc so they end up with another server's LAG.

Working on amassing another Netgear switch or two that support that feature. They brought it in later in the cycle and most of the switches we have don't support it.
