We upgraded to Extreme Switches from Cisco SG500 and SG250 small business switches. Extreme Switches offer a much easier to use GUI management platform called Extreme CloudIQ, which makes visibility into our network much easier and user friendly. Performance wise these offered higher uplink speed as well.

I found Aruba equipment to be more expensive than Extreme [Ethernet Switches] and I just was not sold that they would perform better. In my opinion, you are paying a premium for the HPE Aruba brand. We've been using Extreme back when they were called Enterasys. They were pushing network boundaries for years even before Extreme bought them. I think Extreme [Ethernet Switches] are a better quality switch.

Overall the Extreme's CLI is more intuitive that Cisco's. At a core networking perspective the two are probably equal in terms of performance. When we were last upgrading our infrastructure networking Cisco Sales were not as interested in us since we are (by their definition) a 'small shop', whereas Extreme Sales gave us proper treatment and made sure we bought what we needed.

Cisco switches and routers are good, but there is the "Cisco Tax" that you have to pay, along with the use of any non-Cisco branded SFPs blocking any tech support options until the non-Cisco device is removed. Extreme does not play that game. The switches also allow for two true power supplies (hot swappable and easy to swap) instead of the DC backup supply in Cisco. We had a single HPE switch stack in our environment and I found the commands to be clunky but the firmware was quite out of date.
