Re: MicroFocus OO supports SAN switch automation for Brocade and IBM

We have created flows that work with BNA REST API, which are doing zoning, zone aliases, checking ports and so on. What I know is that Brocade is moving away from BNA to control switches and BNA REST API might not be supported in 1-2 years. Brocade still has REST API on every switch, but having to figure out on which switch to run zoning commands is not elegant. You also need to have connection between Worker RAS servers and all of the FC switches, which is usually separate storage network. With BNA, you were controlling everything from one place and RAS only needed connection to BNA server and BNA server had access to storage network and all of the FC switches.
