    Looking for highly reliable rackmount 24x1Gbit switch under $250

    +1 on these. I replaced a ubiquiti 24-port because my two esxi hosts with 10gb enet had no way to talk to each other without a back to back link, and that eliminates them from being the management network NICs. This switch was perfect in that respect. I don't do routing or anything funky, so...

    Sophos SG-230?

    Possibly not. I only switched to a dedicated HW (UTM in a generic PC) because I change stuff a lot in the home lab, and don't want the internet to go down for more than a few seconds.

    Sophos SG-230?

    Sophos SG-230?

    I love UTM but finally bailed. My home network was always close to the 50 IP limit (especially on the holidays, with guests/family visiting.) To make it worse, I don't yet have IPv6 from my broadband provider, but that would put me way over the top.

    MikroTik CSS326-24G-2S+RM Review the One to Get

    I went with the CSS unit to replace a 24-port edgeswitch, since I wanted the 2 SFP+ ports (my home lab has 2 ESXi hosts with 520 10gb nics). It's been perfect so far. Hard to beat the price. I didn't need any fancy features - just needed a VLAN to isolate pacemaker corosync totem traffic...

    ESXi RDMA enablement

    I don't know. I was not using a switch - two mellanox 50gb cards connected back to back with DAC cables.
